Modernising public administrations using ICT and facilitating the interaction with administrations have been on the eGovernment agenda for over a decade. The digital revolution, enhanced connectivity, openness and transparency lead to higher expectations of public administration performance, but are also an opportunity to equip public administrations for the 21st century. The steady integration of new technologies into the everyday lives of people, businesses and governments is helping to open up public administrations, offering opportunities for more collaborative relationships that allow relevant stakeholders to collaborate in the design and delivery of public services and policies. It requires effective collaboration across government departments and with non-governmental actors. It needs reflecting upon the likely changes in government's role and its ability to deliver public value. It requires opening up public data, services and processes so that they can be re-used between administrations to avoid duplication, but also to enable collaborative service production and open policy-making, leading to user-friendly, automated services as well as effective policies that integrate available evidence and stakeholders' perspective.
