Fundamental Aspects for E-Government
The upcoming initiatives using ICT in the government process should strengthen the benefit of E-Government in most countries. Since E-Government among other e-related terms is a widely (interpreted) term, it is sometimes challenging to understand the objective and goals of an initiative. Therefore in this paper we introduce and explain the most E-Government related terms. Even more, we outline some interesting initiatives and implementations to explain the benefits of using ICT in the government domain. So next to the term description, concrete activities will be aligned to the terms to explain the practical use in a better way. We conclude with several challenges that arise when thinking of the implementation of E-Government services. Overall this chapter should give a good overall view about E-Government and the relating issues.
