The use of Web 2.0 on Mexican State Websites: A Three-Year Assessment

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejeg-volume9-...
Web 2.0 tools and applications (e.g., blogs, wikis, forums, RSS, podcasts and videocasts) as well as social markers (e.g., Del.icio.us, Technorati, Facebook and Digg) have reached government and commerce sites; however, there is still a dearth of res earch related to the adoption levels of such tools. The purpose of this research is to contribute toward filling this gap by assessing the impact of this trend on Mexican local government sites by asking the following question: to what extent have local e -government websites in Mexico adopted Web 2.0 tools and applications? To answer this question, the paper starts by reviewing key concepts of Web 2.0 applications in government portals. On the basis of a longitudinal evaluation of Mexican local government sites, we found that most of the websites analyzed have increased their use of Web 2.0 tools and applications; however, we also found that not all applications are equally well-developed or used on the local websites. Web 2.0 is...

A Critical Analysis of E-government Evaluation Models at National and Local Municipal Levels

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejeg-volume13...
Abstract: The importance of e-government models lies in their offering a basis to measure and guide e-government. There is still no agreement on how to assess a government online. Most of the e-government models are not based on research, nor are they validated. In most countries, e-government has not reached higher stages of growth. Several scholars have shown a confusing picture of e-government. What is lacking is an in-depth analysis of e-government models. Responding to the need for such an analysis, this study identifies the strengths and weaknesses of major national and local e-government evaluation models. The common limitations of most models are focusing on the government and not the citizen, missing qualitative measures, constructing the e-equivalent of a bureaucratic administration, and defining general criteria without sufficient validations. In addition, this study has found that the metrics defined for national e-government are not suitable for municipalities, and...

A Model of Success Factors for Implementing Local E-government in Uganda

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejeg-volume10...
Local e-government enables citizens at all levels to interact with government easily and access services through electronic means. It enables electronic transactions between government departments and the private sector to take place easily and cheaply. Despite these benefits, its implementation in economically and technologically transitioning countries remains problematic. This is largely due to the gap between the existing e-government implementation models and the local context for these countries. This study attempts to address this problem by describing a model for local e-government implementation in a transitioning country, Uganda. A field study was used to gather requirements for the model. The results are used to extend an existing model in order to describe a suitable one for Uganda. Basing on the results collected from the field, the research recommends that the extended model for local e-government implementation should address the dimensions of financial Resource...

The Challenge of Technolgy: Alignment Dynamics in Local Governments

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejeg-volume10...
: In organization literature, strategic alignment is a key concept. A vast amount of literature focuses on the need for businesses for aligning their business and IT strategy. The importance of alignment in (local) governments is yet underexposed. However, local governments are also challenged to incorporate IT in their daily processess and they also strive to become more efficient and effective organizations. In practice, this proves to be a dynamic process where a lot of factors come into play when technology is introduced within these organizations. In research, there is a need for a better understanding of this dynamic process of alignment. Therefore, in this paper we want to explore the dynamic process of aligning local governments with technology. We do so by using the 7Smodel as a framework to analyze how seven different elements, both hard and soft, mutually affect each other and make out the local dynamics. Furthermore, we put forward the notion of strong and weak...

A Public Value Evaluation of e-Government Policies

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejise-volume1...
Public Administration aims at producing value for citizens; the use of ICTs to improve government and governance, as implied by e-Government, can be considered as a means to increase the public value produced by Public Administration. As a consequence, the policies for e-Government can be evaluated according to their ability to increase the Public Administration capacity of producing public value, both for citizens as users and citizens as operators of Public Administration. In the first case, the policies for e-Government can be evaluated with respect to the quality of the services delivered to citizens; in the latter case they can be evaluated with respect to their ability to improve the system of Public Administration. In this paper, we describe a public value evaluation of two different systems of support to e-Government projects implemented in Lombardy Region (Italy). Both systems support Small Local Government Organizations that set up aggregations in order to implement...

The Effectiveness of e-Service in Local Government: A Case Study

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejeg-volume3-...
e-Technology has become a catalyst for enabling more effective government through better access to services and the democratic process. As public interest in the Internet and e-Technology solutions continues to grow, there is an increasing expectation that they will be utilised in national and local governments for not only more efficient governance but also improving public access to information and services. This paper, based on a case study discusses some of the key aspects of electronic government and e-Service. It examines the value and the effectiveness of e-Services within the public sector with a focus on four specific facets of effectiveness: the view of management and ICT strategists; social, cultural and ethical implications; the implications of lack of access to ICT; and the customers'citizens' view of the usefulness and success of e-Service initiatives.

Stages of Growth in e-Government: An Architectural Approach

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejeg-volume3-...
Governmental agencies from all over the world are in various stages of development to migrate their traditional systems architectures to more horizontally and vertically integrated architectures. In this paper a stages of growth model for the development of information architectures for local governmental agencies is presented. By analyzing discontinuities in the architectures coordinating back and front office applications five stages are derived. The five-stage model consists of 1) no integration, 2) one-to-one messaging, 3) warehouse, 4) broker and 5) orchestrated broker architecture. Public decision-makers can use these stages as a guidance and direction in architecture development, to reduce the complexity of the progression of e-government initiatives, to communicate changes to the rest of the organization and to provide milestones to evaluate and control cost of architecture development.

The Role of the CIO in a Local Government IT Strategy: The Case of Merida, Yucatán, Mexico

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejeg-volume9-...
Merida offers an exemplary case of the importance and strategic role of the CIO in a local government. Merida, like many other local governments, faces numerous problems in terms of adequate technical infrastructure, specialized IT staff, and support from public officials, among others. In addition, one of the main challenges of local eGovernment implementation is the lack of a central figure to promote progress, integrate decisions, and foster structural and procedural changes. In the case of Merida, the CIO played this role and created new regulations, homologated processes, and developed interactions among Merida’s different city government stakeholders through websites and cell phones. Merida is now a leader in citizen-centered eGovernment services and provides fast and reliable responses to their daily needs. Based on the review of official documents and interviews with Merida’s CIO and his IT staff, this article identifies and describes some of the early challenges and...
