ICT Sustainability Early Adopters
NSWTAFE has been able to generate a lot of interest for their ICT Sustainability Training through pilot trials and presentations to ACS members. These interested parties are early adopters of ICT Sustainability and have already begun to reap some benefits, including reduced power consumption at the desktop level as well as more efficient enterprise architecture planning incorporating server virtualisation and cloud computing.
NSWTAFE training offers specific solutions that fit each client and facilitates feasibility analysis to increase pilot trials and final rollout. Optimizing hardware, software, and advanced applications and providing one-stop complete suites or solutions, which facilitate easy integration across the three domains are also crucial to succeed in ICT Sustainability.


Training Pedagogy
· Researching and learning the basics of ICT Sustainability.
· Experimenting - setting up a trial, purchasing hardware and software, and getting some hands-on experience.
· Doing a field trial to identify potential business applications, gaining practical knowledge in real-world environments.
· Developing a feasibility study and proposal, choosing hardware and software vendors
· Launching a pilot, to confirm technical operation, correct any problems and prepare for the final deployment and scaling
· Presentation and Review
