About EGOV7

Introduction

During recent years, the combined and synergistic forces of social, mobile, big data, and cloud technologies have worked together to offer new ways to permanently improve how governments serve and interact with the needs and expectations of the public. Also, these trends were detrimental in enabling collaboration among government entities, nonprofit organizations, private-sector companies, and the public. The smart government uses this collaboration to help integrate and improve previously distinct processes, systems, and policy domains. The smart government takes full advantage of the information technology trends to improve government services in ways that are quick, measurable, affordable, and sustainable. Various trends are driving smart government programs to allow generating sustainable public value.
