CEO Claims Green IT Benefits Must Make it the Norm, Not a Trend

More than just energy benefits, Green IT can save on hardware and resources for applications

Navot Peled, CEO of Gizmox, challenged the "Green IT trend" with the announcement this week that its product, Visual WebGui, has been successfully providing energy and environmental benefits to enterprises, with its solutions that dually cut costs for hardware and software.

"Over the past 2 years, enterprises have been successfully using our product - Visual WebGui, and reaping the environmental and energy benefits while saving money," said Peled.  "To move the industry forward, it's not the individual success of each Green IT product that must be celebrated. We must collectively recognize that there's not just one Prius. Rather, every major development in technological applications today can, and must, incorporate the environmental and energy factors."

Visual WebGui raised its value as a platform that can improve Green IT even more profoundly with the recent Visual WebGui based Verismic Power Manager Solution that reduces operational costs, enhances end user experience, and increases efficiency of IT support staff.  With analysts such as Gartner and Forrester claiming that more than 40% of IT costs come from the power consumption of the PC estate, Verismic Power Manager Software, which describes itself as "precision engineering for systems management", sought environmental and economic enhancements in its products.

Visual WebGui was its platform of choice for a solution that would address the needs of increased efficiency by optimizing PC power consumption while delivering savings of $75 per PC and ROI within 6 months. In addition to the savings achievable by the applicative product as a resources manager, Visual WebGui contributes to savings on hardware equipment and even power resources, as its platform consumes 50% less CPU and 90% less bandwidth.

"Visual WebGui has provided the excellent user experience that our customers now expect from Verismic Software" said Mark McGinn, Managing Director, Verismic.  "In such a critical area as PC Power Management where cost and carbon reduction are equally important to business, Visual WebGui has enabled us to provide a solution that does not increase resource requirements or administration overhead."

Verismic also recognized simpler development and expedited production, which translates into great benefits for Verismic's environmentally-preferred Power Manager.

Visual WebGui's platform has offered native environmental benefits since the company's inception, and its effects are being felt by companies around the world, like Verismic Software (which provides software to UK, Mainland Europe, US and Asia Pacific).
