Consumerization of IT has hit the DoD (OK, it hit awhile ago, but read on) #gov20

Navy iPad?

Navy iPad?

Apparently the Navy will allow iPhone, iPad and Android devices to be utilized on their unclassified networks.

Not all that unusual in a normal private sector CIO’s world, but when it starts to hit parts of DoD, then folks have to call it a solid trend line.  The consumerization of the ICT landscape has been developing for years, but now the opening in the most secure agencies in the world could allow for much further development and deployment of government oriented mobile technology.  Of particular interest is the mention of a potential Navy App Store.

Go Navy!
