The Indiana CIO sees the cloud as an integral part of his storage exit strategy.
Indiana CIO Dewand Neely had a quick answer to the question, "What technology would you most like to leave behind?" He'd like to get rid of expensive on-premise storage.
Over the next several months, Neely plans to downsize his data center and offload as much data storage as possible to the cloud. At the NASCIO annual conference in Orlando last month, he told us about his plans for a hybrid approach that enables testing and development to take place in the cloud, reserving data center space for production.
