Intelligent ICT solutions not only help to make business processes more efficient, competitive and innovative through flexibility, collaboration and mobility, many new and innovative business models are only made possible because of ICT. ICT influences entire industries and also the social impact of doing business, for instance through overarching trends such as Green IT. Important user industries for these new ICT solutions include the health sector, the education sector, automotive and transport, and the entire public sector. The LIFE 2 Study takes a closer look at these industries and sectors. We also examine specific aspects of Green IT and energy: New technologies offer great potential to improve energy efficiency and climate protection. LIFE 2 looks at what significance these topics presently have for enterprises and how much the decision-makers know about these issues.
