Digital government is a new frontier of the development of electronic commerce. Electronic Government Strategies and Implementation is a timely piece to address the issues involved in strategically implementing digital government, which is a collection of high-quality papers that covers the various aspects of digital government strategic issues and implementations from the perspectives of both developed and developing countries. Most published articles and/or papers on eGovernment implementation strategies, if not all, are based upon experience of developed countries, rather than developing countries. This book combines eGovernment implementation experiences from both developed and developing countries, and is useful to researchers and practitioners in the area as well as instructors teaching courses related to digital government and/or electronic commerce.
Building the Network State
Contribution by Dieter Spahni
The administration portal for Switzerland, www.ch.ch, is based on a powerful meta-database of available resources and services of the public administration and allocates a unique name, the Uniform Resource Name (URN), to every resource. The URN:Technology, adapted to the requirements of www.ch.ch, has become an open standard and a building block of the Swiss e government platform. This chapter shows why portals in widespread, long-established federal structures with decentralized responsibility for the resources and interlinking can benefit from the URN:Technology, enabling the implementation of the vision of a network state. In this chapter, a blueprint of the network state in Switzerland based on URN:Technology will be presented.
