Information technologies play an important role in government since they collect, control and manage extensive information flows. As part of modernization, e-government has become an essential administrative reform. This chapter elucidates the difference between e-government and e-governance and how they translate into policy differences through specific examples. It describes a convergence model of digital governance to address the challenges faced by developing countries such as India, Sri Lanka, Chile and Philippines. It concludes by offering policy suggestions that emerge from examining creative solutions used by governments in developing countries, such as public-private partnerships that harness phenomena like brain circulation to overcome resource and technical constraints.
