E-Governance initiatives that leverage the potential of information and communication technologies have had a high positive influence in enabling and transforming government services in many countries. However the extent of ICT usage for e-governance is characterized by wide disparity between developed and developing countries all over the world. In addition factors like strategy, enterprise architecture and interoperability play a significant role in providing the right impetus to E-Governance. This paper provides a broad review of some of the well cited work, then provides the necessary motivation and necessity for research by addressing the challenges evolving out of the work on strategy, Enterprise Architecture and Interoperability. Lastly, the work lays the groundwork for proposing an integrated conceptual framework with the suggested methodology and the direction for future work.
