    Gordon Brown, former British Prime Minister, in January 2009, said:
    “Our digital networks will be the backbone of our economy in the decades ahead, just as roads and rails were the backbone of our physical infrastructure, and still are. And we know that every aspect of our lives in local communities, every school, every hospital, every workplace and even every home will be dependent on the services that the digital network provides.”

    ensuring training is done in energy efficient conditions - e.g. energy efficient light bulbs
    procurment - buying energy efficient hardwarethat meets the minimum specification of the business with value added and tendering being considered

    10. How could future developments in ICT have an effect on the environment? (10 marks)
    I have only answered the first 4 but this is what I'd put:

    1. Environmental issues regarding disposal of ICT equipment

    - 50 million tons of E-waste is produced each year
    - USA discards 30 million computers each year and 100 million phones are disposed of in Europe each year
    - Environmental protection agency estimates only 15-20% of e-waste is recycled, the rest of these electronics go into landfills or incinerators
    - 60 elements can be found in complex electrics
    - In the US, estimated 70% of heavy metals in landfills comes from discarded electronics
    - China, India and Ghana all have electronic waste processing areas: uncontrolled burning, disassembly and disposal causes a variety of environmental problems such as groundwater contamination, atmospheric pollution, water pollution by immediate discharge/surface run off
    - Carbon footprint of e-mail spam report estimated that 62 trillion spam emails are sent globally every year, amounting to emissions of more than 17 million tons of CO2

    2. Decisions are made in 3 levels, operational, tactical, and strategic. Give an example of a decision that could be made at each level to increase a company's green credentials.

    Operational – an employee of a company deleting unnecessary e-mails in their inbox

    Tactical – the ICT manager of a company employing server virtualization??

    Strategic – the senior manager of a company using only “green” companies in terms of ICT procurement/equipment/hardware

    3. How could the use of teleworking and hot desking improve the environment?

    Teleworking:
    - Significant reduction in the mileage travelled to and from the place of work. For someone working full time from home their commuting reduces to zero
    - They may even be able to reduce from a two-car to a one-car household
    - Pollution is reduced
    - Sustainability is improved, enhanced green business practices

    Hot desking
    - The benefits of this are that the heating, lighting, use of machines (shared pc’s, printers, phones, etc), can be reduced.
    - The space in the office will be reduced. All of these result in reduced energy usage, costs and carbon footprint.


    4. What effects would using teleworking and hot-desking have on workers in a business and the businesses overall? (6 marks)

    the - means disadvantage and the + means advantage

    Effects of teleworking on workers
    - Lack of face time with work colleagues/isolation as won’t be working with co-workers so won’t be able to develop relationships that can help you network
    -Time management: there a lot of distractions at home, it can be difficult to get work done if you have children/pets. It may be hard to get motivated without a traditional schedule/a boss looking over your shoulder
    - less aware of changes in company, may become “out of sight/out of mind”
    - there is a lack of separation between work and home, may be more potential for excessive working hours
    + savings in commuting costs/and other costs such as going out for lunch, using vendors and buying formal office attire
    + environmental effects, reducing pollution
    + less time taken off from work, employee may be well enough to work from home

    Effects of teleworking on business
    - accessibility to employees, may not be able to contact them
    - may be reduced productivity, company can’t see their employees working, employees may be just watching TV
    - security may be threatened, e.g. a company database may become corrupt and files/damaged if employee logs onto the internet from home and doesn’t have virus protection
    + less hours lost due to commuting traffic
    + savings in energy, office space requirements, maintenance and housekeeping

    Effects of hot-desking on workers
    - ICT ergonomics, the constant changing of seat positions/height, monitor angle and layout of office desk may cause induced stress to worker, each worker has different needs (some may be taller and may need higher chairs)
    - Different workers leave coffee cups/stains at desks = poor working environment for other workers
    - Shared office spaces with shared computers, computer interface devices, and telephones can act as harbors for viruses and bacteria that cause illnesses like cold and flu

    Effects of hot-desking on business
    +The benefits of this are that the heating, lighting, use of machines (shared pc’s, printers, phones, etc.), can be reduced
    + The space in the office will be reduced. All of these result in reduced energy usage, costs and carbon footprint
    + Advantages to hot desking include reduced office costs, networking opportunities, and access to reserved private office space away from home. Because the average employee is at his desk less than a third of the time, companies can benefit from using hot desking in their workforce because it makes use of desks that are not occupied.
    - If a company moves to flexible working, then every team in the company must be trained and required to implement hotdesking properly, otherwise morale will suffer

    Good luck everyone for tomorrow. To be honest, i'm not feeling this exam, there are always questions worded weirdly and i'll end up answering them wrong! Can anyone help me out with these questions? What is meant by adaptive maintenance, what is meant by corrective maintenance and finally perfective maintenance. It's probably common sense but my mind is blank!

    Perfective maintenance aims to improve the performance of a system by adding functionality such as improved speed. Adaptive maintenance is where the system is adapted to meet the changes in an organisation or law eg. to meet requirements of new legislation. Corrective maintenance corrects the system of any faults or bugs to improve usability just remember perfect, adapt and correct and you'll be able to work it out

    Adaptive - adapts the software to changing hardware capabilities or to meet the changing aims of the company (e.g. producing new reports)

    Perfective - continually improves the system so that it gets better and better (tries to make it 'perfect')

    Corrective - as users report bugs, the company corrects them, and issues an updated version of the software
