Creative Riot Software-ENPOWER-Green Tech IT power management


Creative Riot Software was founded in 2008 by very talented young engineers from the University of Mumbai during the final year of their undergraduate studies. Noel Sequeira (CEO), Sameet Singh(Chief software architect) and Amit George(CTO) identified that plain vanilla flavored windows power management system don’t work primarily because windows definition of ‘inactive PC’ is very rigid. A better, user specified power management control system is indeed required.

Gartner estimates that a company with 2,500 PCs and a power management system can save 433,000 kWh per year in comparison to one that doesn’t have PC power management installed. That’s over 40,000 USD saved annually. Its a huge cost saving for any organization in this cut throat competitive market.

In 2010, the no. of PCs in India was 47 million units. This amounts to wastage of USD 960.68 million due to the idle PCs that are not powered down.

As computer science students, the trio found this as an opportunity and decided to solve the power wastage problem encountered by enterprises each day.

They designed an elegant, effective and user friendly enterprise PC power management software – Enpower (TM).

ENPOWER is a centralized and intelligent power management and monitoring solution for networks of computers. It empowers IT admins of an enterprise to optimize the PC power consumption on their networks by effectively transitioning idle machines into power saving modes and ensuring that only the machines that are in use are actually ON and drawing the power. It further provides various useful reports like energy savings, energy consumption, efficiency rating, network view about which PCs are idle but drawing power, exception report about PCs not supporting hibernate/standby mode, and carbon footprint savings. Further details about this company and its product can be found at Creative Riot Software.

ENPOWER – has won a few national and international awards including:
Interoperability Award at the Microsoft Imagine Cup 2008 (Paris)
Eureka! 2008-09 – Asia’s largest business plan contest – organized by IIT Bombay
The world today faces unprecedented problems due to rapid climate change which are now receiving attention from the governments and businesses across the globe. Businesses are working forward to reducing the carbon footprints while still remaining profitable and competitive.

Creative Riot Software’s ENPOWER will definitely be one of the desired solution for enterprise power usage and will help in making a better environment.
