The demand for more socially conscious technology products has reached into all corners of IT, including devices based on embedded processors, and into all the different vertical industries that use them, including retail, healthcare, manufacturing,and more. By leveraging the benefits of lower-power, more energy-efficient CPUs and
computer platforms, companies can find tangible savings in their energy costs and help to build their "green" story - both vendors that create devices that leverage these platforms and the companies that purchase and deploy them. In addition, advanced management capabilities found in some of these platforms can be used to
automate processes that will further increase the cost savings that companies in these various industries enjoy.
