Strategizing, Designing & Optimizing Green Computing Technologies

Course Code: SDOGCT

Course Overview: This engaging hands-on workshop (ISO/IEC 2382-36:2008 Compliant) focuses on the Strategy, Design and Continual Improvement phases of the GCI Process Life-cycle. Delegates will be led step-by-step through all the processes and functions that lead to a properly designed green computing initiative. This course leads to the Certified Green Computing Architect certification.

Course Objectives: At the end of the workshop, delegates will have learned all the strategy and design issues needed to achieve their organizations' green computing objectives. Delegates will gain the knowledge on how to develop their Green IT Policy, put together an action list to identify their organizations Green IT requirements, and how to address them.

Length: 3 Days

Language: English

Audience(s): This course is intended for IT managers, IT architects, consultants, system integrators, vendors, systems engineers and network specialists who are responsible for establishing green computing policies and procedures for an organization.

Delivery Method: Instructor-led (classroom)
