Penn State expects $800,000 in yearly energy savings by using IBM Endpoint Manager

Published on 16 Dec 2011

We expect almost US$800,000 in annual savings, once all of our approximately 20,000 workstations are under Tivoli Endpoint Manager and similar power management settings are applied.

Penn State is a multicampus public research university that educates students and improves the well being and health of individuals and communities through integrated programs of teaching, research, and service

Business need
With energy costs doubling, Penn State looked to reduce unnecessary power consumption from leaving classroom, lab, and departmental computers on, when they were not in use.

The University implemented an endpoint management solution that combines power, lifecycle, patch and security management to reduce energy costs while improving the reliability and security of campus computers.

Reduced energy costs by US$288,000 per year with annual savings expected to reach US$800,000; decreased IT time required to manage classroom and lab computers; improved security with faster deployment of patches and software applications.
