Citrix’s Tom Simmons wrote on Washington Technology about the importance of Power IT Down Day on August 27.
“For the third consecutive year, Power IT Down Day challenges government and industry employees to “power down” their computers and other office equipment at the end of the workday, ” Simmons said. “Industry sponsors Citrix, Intel, Hewlett-Packard and GTSI, joined by partnering organizations GovLoop, FedScoop, the General Services Administration, the Professional Services Council and Boscobel Marketing Communications, encourage DOD agencies – and all federal employees – to participate. Local governments, such as New Hanover County in Wilmington, N.C., have also pledged their support to Power IT Down Day. “
