Adopting the e-government is not very easy, there are lots of challenges Implementation of e-government can face number of challenges depending upon the status of countries. The most challenging is a culture its self. It is very hard to make people to believe in machine.
The following have to be addressed on a whole-of-government basis in order to be overcome:
One of the challenges is its legalities. E-Government should have very clear legal structure to work on. Governments must ensure that a proper legal framework exists before e-government initiatives and processes can take up.
What is needed:
funding arrangements should account for the agencies working together on e-government projects e-government projects is like long-term funding and collaboration across agencies, so it may not work on the principle of Traditional one.
There are some barriers and factors acting against e-government funding:
Measures to assist e-government funding:
One of the largest cost invested in infrastructure while implementing technology, beside this the rapid development of new technology added the economic demand day by day. Aadoption of whole-of-government standards, software integration and middleware technologies can help to handle this barrier someway.
Legacy System is a computer system or program which continues to be used because of the cost of replacing or redesigning it. They may be old, large, monolithic and difficult to modify. They meet the basic needs of organizations, which neither can afford to stop, nor to update them. This is one of the barriers in e-government. So we can adopt some solution, like promotion of government-wide frameworks, standards and data definitions by coordinators.
lack of shared infrastructure
Infrastructure development is too expensive for a single agency, Due to lack of shared standards and lack of compatible infrastructure between agencies, it seems technological barrier plays vital role. So better electronic service, government should adopt following things:
too rapid technological changes, etc.
Changing trends of new technology is really unbelievable, it seems imaginary. In this situation it is very challenges to adopt new technology every times. Then what can be a way?
Public-private partnership is one solution, provided they are in the areas where established standards already exist in the market.
Beside this there are some other approaches:
performance requirements rather than technical specifications when procuring new technologies
Digital Divide is one of the most talked issues in these days, technological discrimination in society tends to lack the objective of e-government itself. But still e-Government can indirectly improve services to citizens with no Internet access through back-office improvements, however:
Such groups have higher level of interaction with government:
Some, but not all, suited for on-line provision.
Many governments pursue policies to reduce digital divide.
