Guidelines for government-to-government initiative architecture in developing countries
The term electronic government (e-government) mainly refers to the information and communications technology (ICT) usage to modify structures and procedures of government agencies. Acknowledging the necessity of utilizing the new electronic, information, and communication technologies, the movement toward implementation of e-government in Iran has recently received the attention of authorities and policy makers. Public administrations have been very much concerned about the architecture of e-government, especially because of the boost of e-government that has taken place in recent years. The paper seeks to provide a set of heuristic principles affecting e-government overall architecture with respect to Iranian government-to-government (G2G) context requirements, which might be applicable for other developing countries with some customization. It is worth mentioning that the grounded action research method was applied to develop a systematic theory from data that contains both inductive and deductive thinking.
