Margaret Rouse Margaret Rouse Profile: Margaret Rouse

Forrester’s Frank Gillett talks with Beet.tv about “cloudwashing.”  He does a nice job breaking down where the future might lie for cloud computing and unlike a lot of other pundits, Frank seems to have his feet on the ground (and not in the clouds).  Don’t miss this one.
