The full potential of the technology has not been utilized yet. The government should unleash it to transform and disrupt the existing order, to provide a leveller to bridge the divide and move towards a more equitable and inclusive society.
Abundance of E-services: The emergence of web-based delivery systems has increased the relevance of technology in the collection, collation, and sharing of information at a low cost. As the information is more readily available on the Internet and citizens become more comfortable in accessing data, hence is expected more from the government. Managing and deployment of such a large number of exponentially growing services and data is becoming more and more complex.
Data Coherence: Data coherence becomes a problem when dealing with the data or information for an E-government initiative. Data deals with the raw information and to convert it in a more intelligent form, i.e., to information, raw data from various diverse sources need to be integrated and processed before using it as information for deciding policy matters. Data coherence deals with the adherence of data to common standards so that the data is consistent, updated across all government sites.
E-Governance Interoperability: As more and more organizations become online and data verification among different departments contributes major data exchange across the departments, there arises the need for cross-departmental communication which comes under the ambit of interoperability due to the heterogeneity of technology (hardware, software) used in solutions.
