Government transformation: The first step to integrate e-business into e-government

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The incorporation of e-business models into e-government applications is an additional approach in building the citizen-centric strategy. The value chain analysis is used to prove that the additional approach can overcome the weaknesses of the main current approaches such as the one-stop service centers and customer management relationship. However, this incorporation is challenged due to the differences between governments and businesses. The value chain analysis assists to find out solutions, which are specialization into a single or group of related services and commercialization allowing the participation of the private sector in carrying e-government initiatives, in order to create the sufficient pre-conditions for integration of e-business models. In other words, government transformation in which commercialization and specialization are the essential parts is the first step to integrate e-business models into e-government applications.
