Green efforts can be helped by SOA? Yep. I had a customer really hammer this one home. This large retailer had previously optimized their processes for efficiency and effectiveness. Now they are looking at how they make their processes greener.... BPM enabled by SOA can help them optimize their processes for Green!
That is why we want to elevate the conversation on Green beyond the datacenter!
James Governor and Gerry Cuomo -- 2 of my favorite people -- will be there to host the event! Gerry will give the keynote address, and then James Governor will lead the sessions. James is co-founder and principal analyst of RedMonk and author of the Greenmonk.net blog, a community dedicated to the use of open source and social software to improve the environment and encourage good behaviors. Sample discussions at the previous Energy Camp included 'Best Practices For Equating "Green IT" to Cost Savings,' 'Are Companies Ready to Consider Some 'Crazy' Ideas to Improve Data Center Energy Efficiency?,' 'Best Practices for Recycling and Refurbing Electronics,' and more!
