Steve Jennings, CIO of Harris County, Texas, will retire after 34 years and several landmark projects. He will depart having recently transitioned the county's public safety communications system to cloud computing -- a type of flexible, virtual server capacity existing on the Web.

His last day will be Aug. 31.

Jennings didn't specify his future plans, but said he wanted to stay connected to local government IT in some way.

"Being able to use technical abilities to help your citizens see results -- somehow I'll be involved with that the rest of my life," Jennings said, later adding, "You never totally retire because someone will always call you and say, 'What do you think about this?'"
