Abstract [en]

Sweden is currently ranked as the leading country in e-government readiness, i.e. how ready the country is to take advantage of the opportunities provided by advances in information technology for delivering e-government services to the citizens. However, the level of e-government development is still far from satisfactory, and further investments are constrained by limited government budgets. One reason for the slow pace of e-government development is the complex mix of actors involved in the public sector, and the lack of understanding how e-government investments are increasing value for the network of actors as a whole. Therefore, there is a need for new approaches estimating values of e-government initiatives in a network of public actors and citizens. This will facilitate prioritization among e-government initiatives, in order to choose initiatives that are the most beneficial for a society as a whole. In this paper, we present such an approach in which we combine two established methods for value analysis, Peng and Value modeling. The combined approach is applied on a Swedish e-government initiative on municipal level including several e-services. The result from the case study shows that the benefits of the egovernment initiative are unevenly distributed among involved actors, it is unevenly distributed between different e-services, and investment costs are primarily carried by one of the actors. We believe that such situation can slow down the future development of egovernment, but the knowledge given by the value analysis approach is important for managing a successful e-government strategy.

Abstract [en]

Today, the design, use and distribution of standard application packages are changing due to the emergence of service orientation. In the private sector, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are extended to include IT services. In the public sector, standard application packages are integrated with IT services which are often referred to as e-Government. E-Government can be extended with mobile technology to add mobility to public processes, so called m-Government.

The problem addressed in this thesis is how to improve organizational effectiveness through the use of standard application packages and IT services. The objectives are to:

  • ­Develop a model for explaining the level of adoption of extended ERP among small and medium sized companies.  
  • ­Identify implications and design patterns of business models for service oriented ERP.
  • ­Establish principles for the design of local government m-services.
  • ­Develop a method for benefits evaluation of information systems with integrated services.

The thesis contributes with theory for analyzing, explaining and predicting how the use of standard application packages as well as IT services affects organizational effectiveness. To practice, it provides new concepts that can change the perceptions and mental models that IS-professionals, such as management consultants, use in their professional lives. In particular, it provides implications, design principles, a model and a method for the use of services in conjunction with standard application packages in public and private sector organizations.

For future research it is suggested to investigate how service orientation affects implementation methods for standard application packages and to investigate the requirements of completely integrated e-Government on e-services, business models and back-office systems.
