A new approach to benchmarking eGovernment in the Web 2.0 era

The European Journal of ePractice has published an intriguing article by David Osimo exploring a new approach to benchmarking eGovernment provision in the Web 2.0 world.

Moving away from measuring the number or complexity of government services made available online, David proposes that the transparency of public data should be considered as a flagship goal and suggests a simple and cost-effective method for measuring transparency.

It's an interesting read and provides another approach to assessing and comparing egovernment success.


  1. Thanks Craig for your interest. Hopefully we could implement this - at least as a pilot. Would you like to collaborate?

  2. Osimod,

    I would, though the maturity level of egovernment in Australia is not as high as that in many parts of Europe as yet.

    There's a few other contacts who might be interested.

    Will drop you a line at your blog.
