The Honorable John G. Grimes Speaks about Cloud Computing

Today I had the pleasure of hearing The Honorable John G. Grimes, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Networks and Information Intergration and Department of Defense CIO, speak on some key current issues. Of note to this audience is three of his points on cloud computing:
  • He met with his staff yesterday on how best to deal with the cloud computing idea;
  • DoD needs to understand how best to move towards a cloud with thin clients;
  • Industry will hear more about DoD's plans for cloud comuting in the coming months.

Sounds like there is a future for cloud computing in the DoD !
