Susie Adams is the CTO of Microsoft's US federal arm.

In this short interview, published in Infoworld, Susie Adams makes a number of excellent points and observations that strike a chord for me personally having worked both alongside and inside public sector here in New Zealand.

Many of the issues she discusses I believe are applicable here.

Some examples;

Addressing the incoming US administrations emphasis on infrastructure issues including broadband;

Being careful to identify what the real ‘problems’ are across many public sector organisations IT implementations rather than trying to dismiss them as having ‘root causes’ , which IMHO inevitably leads to the silver bullet approach;

In conclusion – definitely worth a few minutes to take a read especially if you work inside or alongside public sector.
