Challenges for E-Government Strategy
AbstractGovernments worldwide are faced with the challenge of transformation and the need to reinvent government systems in order to deliver efficient and cost effective services, information and knowledge through information and communication technologies. Development of Information and communication technologies catalyzed and led up to E-government. E-government is about transforming the way government interacts with the governed. The process is neither quick nor simple. The success of e-government requires fundamentally changing how government works and how people view the ways in which government helps them. Governments have different strategies to build e-government. Some have created comprehensive long-term plans. Others have opted to identify just a few key areas as the focus of early projects. In all cases, however, the countries identified as most successful have begun with smaller projects in phases on which to build a structure. Research suggests that there is large potential for e-governance, creating a channel that would bring the government closer to citizens by increasing the speed and efficiency of their interactions. In order for e-government to reach it's full potential, there are several barriers it must overcome.
