Great discussion here
From experience with some EU projects, good building block technology has been developed. With the next phase focussing on operationalising eGovernment services I believe it will be an exciting phase for Europe to make it easy for Member states to adopt and upgrade their services. It will be important to discuss at the DAA how this can be done in a "ground-up" manner to leverage epractice and other good initiatives. Also, the actual operational, functional utility of these developments and their scalability will be important.
