Overview Edit

United Nations Development Programme, e-Government Interoperability: Overview (2007) (full-text).

Overview Edit

This is one of three publications in a series on e-Government interoperability.

This Overview introduces and guides policy makers to the what, who, why and how of e-government interoperability. Through a question-and-answer format, the publication walks its readers through the vision, rationale and value of a Government Interoperability Framework (GIF) and a National Enterprise Architecture (NEA).

It answers some fundamental questions such as what are the resources required, who should be involved and what are the key factors for its successful development and operationalization. It also looks at open standards and what they have to do with GIF.

This Overview is particularly useful for senior officials in governments who are starting to implement their e-government strategies and for those who are planning to develop a GIF or NEA.
