From the Paper:

"E-governance is becoming widespread as well as widely accepted by government bodies and administrations. The rapid spread and assimilation of technology into global society has fostered an environment for the efficient use of it for government and civil purposes. "Rationalities of e-government are replete with ideas of networks, joined up governing one-stop shops, individualised service delivery, and government transparencies" (Henman & Dean 2004, p.2). Therefore, e-governance is the creation of a network of information and databases for use by both public officials as well as citizens in order to capitalize on technological advances to improve the processes of governmental systems."
