Laptop with TEM sticker
University of Washington
July 2010
November 2012

The PC Power and Patch Management program was launched in spring 2012 to deploy the IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager (TEM) software to 3,400 managed desktop computers on the Seattle campus. This launch is the initial rollout of a three phase deployment cycle. The TEM program supports the University's Climate Action Plan goals to reduce and monitor energy consumption for laptops and PCs while providing necessary patch software updates. This project was initiated by UW-IT with rollout support from Facilities, Procurement Services and the Environmental Stewardship & Sustainability office. Savings from energy reduction will be offset by the University's agreement with Seattle City Light's rebate program. A full campus-wide rollout campaign is scheduled to begin in the fall quarter.
