Whether you love green initatives or disagree with them, they are here to stay. As President-Elect Barack Obama enters office I am ancticipating many new green initatives will be put into affect like this one from the state of Georgia which "…gives employers tax credits of up to $1,200 per employee who telecommutes."

With the continued advances in Kaseya’s User State Management application it will be very easy for Kaseya administrators to implement and manage an energy savings plan throughout the network. The KUSM addition doesn’t stop at energy savings, but rather continues into the development of standardizing, managing, and backing up individual machine personalities like corporate wallpaper, IE favorites, screensaver, and more. Start considering how you will implement the new requirements that will be placed on your desk shortly by management. [via: ChannelInsider.com]
