Guido M. Rey is president of AIPA (Autorita per L'informatica nell' Amministrazione Pubblica) -- in effect, the CIO of the government of Italy, a country with a population of about 60 million. AIPA promotes, coordinates, plans and controls the development of information systems within the government's central organizations and agencies, and is responsible for their standardization, connection and integration. A key part of that effort is the Unified Network, which will eventually connect every government office, at every level, in Italy.
