Green IT Matters at Wipro Ltd  
Product Ref: 09/455C Company: Wipro Ltd

Product Type: Case Industry: Information Technology Enabled Services

Related Product(s): Teaching Note
The head of the Green IT team at Wipro Ltd, a leading IT services company headquartered in Bangalore, India, is facing dilemmas with regard to the company's goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2014. The green computing programme has been in operation for over a year at Wipro, but the strategy remains inadequate. On the positive side, a strategy is in place, an organizational structure has been put together and virtual staff members have been enlisted. However, the company has not yet developed a core set of skills in green computing. A shared belief is not resonating across the organisation, there are no systems with which to measure and monitor the progress of green computing, and execution is falling short.

This case provides background for understanding the inception and implementation of Wipro's green strategy and enables students to analyse the situation from the perspective of a team leader who is expected to deliver results.
Functional Area : Management of Information Systems
Strategy & General Management

Learning Objective: To establish the conceptual underpinnings of green computing, to trace the evolution of Green IT at Wipro, to evaluate the strategy deployed by Green IT, and to identify the need for mid-course corrections at Green IT.
