In this chapter, an overview of electronic government is given. Online electronic services, like inquiry possibilities that are made available to its interaction partners (citizens and businesses) by administration authorities, are one proof of changes in the public sector because of modern information and communication technologies. Electronic government includes all governmental measures at the levels (union, states, and local governments) for qualitative improvements in citizen’s different spheres of life and for optimization of business processes within the administration. It can cause an improvement of the relationship between administration, citizens, and businesses. The author gives an overview about selected current international electronic government incentives, introduces analysis methods for these governmental strategies, and shows developed guidelines for implementing electronic government.
