Reviews and Testimonials
"In a time of extreme fragmentation of ideas and methods in using ICT for development, Enterprise Architecture (EA) frameworks bring order and discipline for aligning public sector business processes, modern enterprise management methods and delivery of services using ICT. The book "Enterprise Architecture for Connected E-Government: Practices and Innovations" is a timely compendium of practices and experiences in the use of EA in the public sector."
– H.E. Eng. Mohammed Jamil Bin Ahmed Mulla, Minister of Communications and Information Technology, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
Enterprise Architecture (EA) is an essential tool for driving government transformation. However, adoption of EA by governments has been challenging, and there are few examples of successful use of EA at scale. I am sure that this book will help governments better understand the value of enterprise architecture, and provide them with practical guidance as they embark on their transformation journey.

This reference comprehensively tells the nature of connected government in the context of enhancing ICT as a driving force for the public administration reform. By discussing theoretical and practical innovations, best lessons and their impact on transforming from fragmented government to government-as-a-whole, the book is expected to attract authorities in making polices and strategies to actively respond to the higher demands from public management and human development as well as to overcome massive financial and economic challenges in coming period. In the case of Vietnam, the book helps us find appropriate solutions to resolve the situations of ineffective cross-agency and inter-agency collaborations, unsuitable mechanism in allocating and distributing state budget, and insufficiently shared infrastructure in nationwide.
