To the user, iGreen offers a standardized and branch-spanning access to intelligent technologies, which enable collaboratively organized, data-specific services. Small enterprises in particular will profit from the access to encompassing structures for knowledge exchange and eBusiness, while ensuring local control. Infrastructure and knowledge gain will result in higher efficiency, reduced resource consumption, and better economics. The competitiveness of enterprises who integrate into the innovative network of services and knowledge will thus be improved.
