Abstract:


The innovation and development of the Information Technology and Communication (ICT) industry has significantly contributed to almost all aspect in human life. However, ICT is also responsible for the global carbon footprint due to several studies have suggested that ICT is already responsible global carbon emissions from the consumptions of IT products and applications. Realizing that, the implementations of Green IT framework by MAMPU are important as an initiative towards sustainable environment by reducing the energy consumptions and carbon emission of ICT equipment in all public sectors. The aim of this paper is to demonstrate the development of prototype system to monitor the ecological and sustainable behavior in Malaysia public sector community. The prototype system is designed as augmentations tool to the implementation of Green IT framework that used by MAMPU. Prior to the prototype system development, this paper will review the current practices of Green IT in Malaysian Public Sector and the related examples of monitoring application in order to get some understanding about Green IT Monitoring applications. The prototype system is then will be developed and has gone through the common software development process. The screenshots of working prototype system will be showed in the last section of this paper.
