Building the virtual state : information technology and institutional change by Jane E Fountain( )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 2,219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Building the Virtual State, Jane Fountain explains how government must evolve to become part of the Internet revolution. Fountain calls on government agencies to abandon outmoded bureaucratic tendencies in favor of a less centralized approach to providing services. This requires a change not only in the way government executives think, but also in the way they view their relationships with citizens. They must answer questions regarding costs and maintenance of Internet portals, and at the same time assure citizens that their privacy will be protected." "The creation of this "virtual state," Fountain argues, will not be easy, exposing much of the structural obsolescence of our current bureaucracy. However, if our government is to serve its central purpose - to work for its citizens and provide them with the opportunity to excel - it must embrace this change. It must negotiate the solutions to the internal questions of management, as well as external questions of protection of privacy and capability of use by all citizens. The outcome of this struggle will likely determine the extent to which the American government will be recast in the Information Age and whether its citizens will emerge as winners or losers."--Jacket

TACIT WEB : ENTREPRENEURIAL DISCOVERY, INSTITUTIONAL COMPLEXITY AND INTERNET DIFFUSION by Meelis Kitsing( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation investigates how institutional frameworks and entrepreneurial discovery processes condition internet diffusion. While internet and internet-based technologies have received considerable scholarly attention, the dissertation emphasizes tacit elements in understanding internet diffusion. In order to do so, it incorporates perspectives on insttitutional complexity stemming from interactions of formal and informal institutions and different institutional logics. Empiral part consists both macro level comparisons of Estonia and Slovenia as well as micro level analysis of internet diffusion processes within Estonia. Estonia and Slovenia are selected for comparison because of considerable variance in insitutional frameworks. At the same time, both countries are relatively small and members of the European Union. This allows to focus on specific institutional configurations and path-dependencies in constraining and enabling the diffusion of internet. I find that internet is diffused more extensively and intensively in Estonia. Different socio-economic groups use more sophisticated online services in Estonia than in Slovenia. Once specific institutional configurations in general and in the telecom sector in particular are considered then it emerges that insitutional frameworks in Estonia have been more facilitative of entrepreneurial discovery processes over time. As a result, supply and demand for innovative online services in Estonia is greater than in Slovenia. After comparative perspective on two countries, the dissertation proceeds to analyze specific cases of online initiatives in Estonia such as internet banking and internet voting. Examination of outcomes shows how some of these initiatives have been successful and created reasons for adoption and use of internet on the individual level leading to a greater diffusion on macro level. My analysis demonstrates that positive outcomes have often been unintended result of experimentation through the process of entrepreneurial discovery within the context of institutions and path-dependencies. Evidence for this finding is bolstered by study of heterogeneous cases of various ICT initiatives. By emphazing institutional complexity and policy heterogeneity, the dissertation illuminates and explains the tacit nature of internet diffusion in a specific context of Estonia. This implies that Estonia has followed a unique developmental trajectory which cannot be generalized and transferred to other countries

"En todo el mundo los estados-nación están incorporando las tecnologías de información y comunicación para adentrarse de lleno en la era digital (pagos en línea, blogs para comunicarse con los ciudadanos, difusión rápida de noticias e información); esto hace necesario que las teorías y marcos de referencia ayuden a una mejor implementación del gobierno digital y a lograr mejores políticas públicas en otras áreas relacionadas, mediante el análisis de las relaciones de las variables organizacionales, institucionales y políticas, con el diseño, la implementación, la administración y la evaluación de iniciativas de tecnologías de información en el gobierno. Este libro revisa la estructura del estado, cómo se relaciona con la sociedad, el papel de la política, de las instituciones y los burócratas, a partir de los cambios institucionales que implica el desarrollo del llamado estado virtual."--Cubierta
