CIO of the NSW Department of Education and Training (DET) Stephen Wilson has resigned just short of celebrating his fifth year with the department in August.\nThe Australian reported the CIOs decision to leave the position - a role for which he became known as the "chief architect" of the NSW government's computers-in-schools program.\nBefore joining DET Wilson spent more than two decades with multinational healthcare company, Johnson Johnson. He was instrumental in the department's Connected Classroom program. The average tenure for a DET CIO is only one year, but Wilson has bucked the trend.\n"We\u2019re in the midst of a massive change in public education,\u201d he told CIO in a recent interview. \u201cOur strategy is to create a connected learning community [and] IT systems should enable and support the business, not define the processes."\nNews of Wilson's resignation comes as the Department for Foreign Affairs and Trade recently began advertising for a new CIO, and as Telstra's CIO John McInerney recently announced his resignation.
