The Taxonomy is mapped at the indicator level against the EGMM subareas covering all of the relevant aspects associated with the intangible IT assets of the Public Administration in Uruguay. The main challenges and future lines of work for building a consolidated maturity model of IT intangible assets in Public Administration are also presented.

Intangible Assets

Definitions

According to IASC (2009), intangible assets “are characterized as identifiable assets, without physical substance, and that are allocated for use in the production or supply of goods and services to be lent to third parties, or for administrative ends.” Baruch Lev (2001) defines intangible assets in the following manner: “an intangible asset is a claim to future benefits that does not have a physical or financial (a stock or a bond) embodiment. A patent, a brand, and a unique organizational structure (for example, an Internet-based supply chain) that generate cost savings are intangible assets.”
