Description & Coverage
Description:

Mobility is no longer a technological revolution. It is more about how businesses and governments can provide a better social infrastructure through mobile applications and services. While e-government was an important step taken by many governments, provision of services through mobile technologies is now inevitable. Public demand for mobility, the efficiency and productivity gains of the public sector through mobility, lead to a natural move from e-Government to m-Government.

Mobile Government: An Emerging Direction in e-Government provides selected examples of current developments from various countries in terms of technology, applications and services, and various real world m-government examples, their evaluations, challenges and opportunities.Mobile Government: An Emerging Direction in e-Government applies to various groups, including m-Government practitioners and researchers, government officials, policy makers and mobile IT solution providers in the areas of e-government, mobile business, mobile internet and public administration. This innovative publication contains introductory knowledge on m-Government, and then moves on to a relatively deeper examination of various applications, that are significant in terms of current and future developments in m-Government.
