Using curtains in data centers to reduce enviornmental profile

This is a simple, cost effective, and efficient way to help reduce the environmental profile (cooling) of our data centers. For a minimal cost we could potentially save a lot of money trying to cool our IT data centers. Using only a plastic (or similar material) that would add an extra layer of abstraction between the hot and cold aisles in our data centers. They are easy to maintain and are made so as to not hinder... more »

Microsoft = Money

In today’s’ world everyone searches for data. Everyone has a laptop, not a desktop… an iphone, blackberry, or android phone, and everyone loves a simple conservative interface. Our dependency on Microsoft products offers no fiscal reward regarding cost, productivity, training, maintenance and growth.

There would be some changes in the Regulations and perhaps the laws to make this happen, but this isn’t rocket science. Make it easy for Internet users of... more »

Let Internet Usage Pay for Itself

My idea is for government departments and agencies to promote the use of GoodSearch.com in lieu of Google or Bing as their default internet search engine. For example, if there are 50,000 employees at an Air Force Base, this would generate an estimated $365,000 per year (assuming a minimum of 3 web searches per day.) Additionally, whatever purchases a government agency needs to make (i.e. specialized software, books,... more »

Use a service such as Citrix or Good Technologies to provide a secure connection to Government networks for people to use their personal smart phones (iPhone), tablets (iPad) or laptops.

Replacement of NMCI with distributed and cloud technologies

Navy/Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI), a contractor-operated IT infrastructure, is too costly and out of date. The replacement system, Next Generation (NGEN) IT solution is an ill-defined concept that is basing its design concepts on the money-wasting, antiquated architectures dating as far back as 1969 and ARPANET. Current technologies exist that would allow the Department of Navy (DON) and the USMC to deploy a fully... more »
