BFM2013_4_00_Introduction – Business perspective on e-government

This issue of BFM was focused on “Business Perspective on E-government”: how to ensure that your organization maximizes the benefits deriving from e-government, while understanding its impact on your way of doing business.

Since this issue was first prepared, 2004, and published, 2005, e-government became an everyday reality for any organization.

While some of the late-1990s promises still have to be turned into reality, most of the material published a decade ago is at last now obsolete.

E-government is following the “snowball” principle: the longer it runs, the larger it becomes.

Therefore, instead of refreshing the old material, this updated chapter focuses on few basic principles and their potential impact on corporate and individual citizens.
