Good news today from the System Center team – Configuration Manager R3 has been released.

System Center Configuration Manager R3’s (SCCM R3) release is notable as is it provides centralized, policy-based Power Management for Windows PCs. This capability will reduce energy use of these PCs in a centralized manner and will help IT departments reduce costs significantly.  Organizations can plan and apply a power management policy for high and low PC usage periods, monitor user activity to avoid any productivity interruptions and correct non-compliance. Detailed reports of trends and settings help you make smart power management choices, and also validate Green IT projects with summaries of power, money and CO2 savings.

The System Center team blog highlights one 20,000 seat organization that recently reported through early conservative power management policies, they will save approx. $500,000 per year. That’s big time savings in energy too.
