These days it's all about going green. And this year's winner of the American Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council's Excellence in Going Green Award certainly demonstrated sustainability prowess. The State Department was able to reduce the number of servers from 185 to 17. And that's just part of their award-winning initiative.
