Australian reform blueprint underpins e-government aspirations Market Research Report

Press Release   •   Oct 04, 2010 12:22 IST

The blueprint is a milestone document, bridging the gap between traditional government administration, the rather tired e-government agenda, and the contemporary government 2.0 expectations of technology-savvy citizens. The report did not set out to look specifically at IT, and had no technology-based objectives. However the message for IT managers is unmistakable. Most importantly, the document bypasses any artificial divide between “business” and “IT”. For too long, this divide has been a fundamental part of traditional IT thinking. The blueprint now argues that “on the back of dramatic advances in information technology over the past decade”, “the Australian people are pushing for change”. This document will come as a relief to many IT managers in government and industry. Finally, there is a formal public service strategy that recognizes the technology “elephant in the room” and the need for administrative reform.
