How are software companies coping with the concepts like “Energy efficient software” and “Green IT” especially at the project team or individual level?
A very good study that might clarify about the amount and kind of sustainability practices employed in professional software development was recently published in IEEE Software journal. Interestingly, the ‘study abstract’ states and I quote, “Researchers surveyed more than 100 programmers regarding their knowledge of software energy consumption. They found that the programmers had limited knowledge of energy efficiency, lacked knowledge of the best practices to reduce software energy consumption, and were often unsure about how software consumes energy. These results highlight the need for better training and education on energy consumption and efficiency.”. Here is the link.
