Description : While electronic research has developed in many governments around the world, the majority of its research has focused on the supply and demand aspects of e-government instead of the focus on technology integration for successful e-government design. Technology Development and Platform Enhancements for Successful Global E-Government Design compiles the shared experiences of e-government designers and practitioners with a focus on technological design. By highlighting the different technological nuances that need to be incorporated into successful e-government designs, this book is a useful tool for professionals and researchers concerned with the organizational development in different types of e-government communities and environments.
Description : This is the third in a series of UN reports which assesses the e-government readiness of the 191 UN member states, according to a quantitative composite index based on website assessment, telecommunication infrastructure and human resource capacity. The report finds that there are huge disparities in access and use of information and communication technologies around the world, and these disparities are not likely to be removed in the near future unless a concerted action is taken at the national, regional and the international levels for ICT-led development. Expanding the concept of 'real access' to ICT for everyone, the report sets out a 'socially inclusive governance framework' which focuses on the need to promote access and inclusion for the most disadvantaged in society.
