EXTENDED GOVERNMENT - An Interoperability Point of View

Claudio Biancalana, Francesco Saverio Profiti, Fabio Raimondi



The widespread diffusion witnessed by e-Government services in recent years, has allowed the realization of important cases of administrative simplification, mainly due to the direct interaction between informative systems of administrations in A2A modality. In the above scenario, a great importance is assumed by the concept of interoperability, intended as the set of technical rules necessary to define a common interface between the administrations, which have the need to exchange information in A2A modality, and which allow to protect the technological choices already in existence, and the organizational autonomy. The aim of the present paper is to illustrate the state of the art of the project initiatives prompted by the Regione Lazio, relatively to interoperability, with particular reference to the concept of Extended Government. Such concept finds its foundation in the definition of Extended Enterprise. It has been massively used in project initiatives of the Region, with the aim of reusing the scientific research results in such field, mainly relatively to the design and realization of Knowledge Management Systems.
