Over the last 20 years, a near literal explosion of growth in online services has taken place. This technology revolution has not limited itself to the private sector; the public sector is embracing new digital frontiers as well. All Government agencies are increasingly adopting new, tech-savvy ways of doing business and serving people.
In the developed world, e-Government programs are widespread and are constantly being streamlined and improved time to time. Information & Communication Technology has been transforming governments throughout developed and emerging countries, pressing for a paradigm shift in e-Government Strategy that advocates placing the citizens at the center of public service delivery.
The electronic tools and services used by and with government, known collectively as "eGovernment", enable civil servants and constituents to navigate the public sector more quickly and efficiently. Government officials and employees can communicate more easily with citizen and business users. Streamline their department’s practices, improve transparency and do a better overall job of carrying out the vital work of government.
The shift toward eGovernment is also motivated by another, more fundamental factor: money. Ongoing economic challenges have brought about major budget cuts in the public sector, and agencies have had no choice but to reduce spending everywhere possible in response. By making operations more efficient and sustainable, eGovernment has helped many public sector entities maintain and even increase their level of performance in the of the fiscal challenges. Efficiency, Quick Response, Connecting with the Citizens, Transparency and Cost-effectiveness are the hallmarks of the eGovernment revolution.
The eGovernment is exciting and constantly changing. Governments across the nation are preparing for the future and considering how to deliver the next generation of solutions to the new generation citizens.
