The Council for Excellence in Government has formed a group called CIO SAGE whose purpose is to share expertise with new government IT leaders. It is made up of former government IT leaders like Steve Kolodny, John Thomas Flynn, and John Kelly. This group needs to add Phil Windley whose technical expertise and knowledge certainly rivals any of the others, particularly in the area of web services and building enterprise systems. They should also consider adding former Utah CIO Dave Moon who could say a lot about coalition building and venture capital development.
