Understanding Electronic Government Success: Discussion and Implications
As mentioned before, this study focuses on the complex relationships between information technologies and social structures in government settings. It provides a better understanding of e-government success by including multiple factors and theorizing about their interrelationships and their effects on the characteristics of the enacted technology and its organizational outputs. It also explains some of the mechanisms through which these effects take place, leading to important theoretical and practical implications. I want to clarify that the theoretical framework was developed based on a broad conceptualization of the e-government phenomenon and, therefore, could be applied to different e-government initiatives.
