Chapter XII. Implementation of E-Governa... > FUTURE RESEARCH DIRECTIONS

FUTURE RESEARCH DIRECTIONS

The technical issues have been discussed here contemplating interoperability that is highly demanded in any transformational e-governance model. Application interoperability has been well addressed with Web services and XML and is widely implemented (Miguel, 2003). Semantic interoperability and its link with enterprise architecture represent the core technological research area. In this regard much research work is needed in the development of data definitions, structures, and models to allow the great variety of data to be integrated and rich pattern matching (Cabral et al., 2004). Semantic Web services is an emerging area of research and will have attention of industry and academia for next few years (Davis, Fensel, & Richardson, 2004).

According to a report of the E-government interoperability workshop held in Brussels on 1st March 2004, an issue was raised by several participants regarding the development of e-government services that should be event-driven and self-adaptive9. Thus, a qualitative research is required to be carried out in connecting and orchestrating independent processes in a macro process that supports self-management and self-healing. AgrentEclipse, a real-time, event-based billing system for communications companies from Argent Networks (www.argentnetworks.com) is an example of event-based system (Langdon, 2003).
