Joe Tait, CIO of NMS Labs in Willow Grove, PA will present a true green information technology success story. What began at NMS as a modest initiative to turn off lab workstations when not in use quickly became a company-wide campaign. Throughout his career, Mr. Tait has built effective teams, turned around operations, spearheaded start ups, integrated IT functions in mergers, and forged cost-effective, highly motivated business and information technology organizations in support of business operations in a range of industries.

Green information technology/IT primarily means:

1) using information technology to reduce negative environmental impacts of business activities by helping organizations and enterprises to operate more efficiently and effectively

2) reducing the negative environmental impact of information technoloigy – by managing information in a way that reduces the resources needed, by managing equipment and processes to use fewer resources, and by managing supplies and equipment for safe disposal and re-use.
