Time to consider Grid Computing?

Companies, like mine, will look toward grid computing if there is an acceptable ROI.

Grid computing will be made more difficult by a mobile workforce unless wireless expands beyond the brick & mortar. Even then, the integrity of grid computing may be questionable. What happens to the units of work my laptop was performing when I unplug it from the docking station and take it home?

Definitely worth considering just for the fact to make optimum use of an organizations resources.

Yet, I do not understand as to why it makes good business sense for companies like IBM, SUN, etc. to be investing their resources in developing Grid Computing products.
