 Transforming governments is not easy. While technology alone cannot transform governments, governments today cannot transform without technology. In   
 the fast paced world of technology, new approaches constantly extend the boundaries of what is possible. The pace of change is evidenced by the fact   
 that terms like SOA, WOA, community sourcing, cloud computing, software-as-a-servic­e, and Web 2.0 that seem almost common place today, were not in the 
 lexicon only a few years ago. It would be good to step back and take a dispassionate view of where the practice of government is heading. Some         
 interesting questions, in a 5-10 years time perspective include:                                                                                       
       What is the future of government? Is technology facilitating a movement towards minimalist government? Joined-up, seamless government: is it     
       What is likely to be the next frontier in moving from e-government to i-government to u-government*?                                             
       How will government services be delivered in the future? What technologies are likely to be most relevant?                                       
       What should governments do to leverage existing and emerging technologies to achieve transformation?                                             
       What are the major challenges in moving towards Government 2.0 and beyond?                                                                       
       * Note: "i" stands for integrated government (Singapore) and "u" is for ubiquitous government (Korea)
