Digital Transformation and E-Government

Dear Colleagues,

The application of information and communication technologies towards sustainable services and applications in the government sector and in all its integrations with citizens, companies, and organizations set a challenging context for digital transformation and e-government. This Topic section promotes the scientific dialogue for the added value of novel methodological approaches and research in the specified areas. Our interest is on the entire end-to-end spectrum of the digital transformation including enabling technologies, strategic frameworks, models, and best practices to sophisticated research related to artificial intelligence enabled applications.

The topics include but are not limited to the following indicative list:

  • Enabling technologies as they contribute to digital transformation and e-government:
    • Data warehouses;
    • Business intelligence;
    • Document management systems and collaboration platforms;
    • Big Data analytics and dashboard;
    • Artificial intelligence;
    • Intelligent agents;
    • 5G and 6G networks;
    • Blockchain;
    • Open source technologies,
  • Methodologies, frameworks, and models for digital transformation and e-government:
    • Towards sustainable development goals;
    • As responses to social problems and challenges;
    • For innovations in the core business of digital transformation and e-government;
    • For theoretical foundations and contributions to the body of knowledge of digital transformation and e-government,
  • Best practices and use cases;
  • Outcomes of R&D projects;
  • Advanced data science analytics;
  • Key performance indicators;
  • Industry-government collaboration;
  • Systems of information systems;
  • Interoperability issues;
  • Security and privacy issues;
  • Ethics on digital transformation.

Connectivity is key to the latest technologies propagating into everyday life. Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications enable users, machines, and technologically enriched objects (‘Things’) to sense, communicate, and interact with their environment. Albeit making human beings’ lives more comfortable, these systems collect huge quantities of data that may affect human privacy and their digital sovereignty. Engaging in control over individuals by digital means, the data and the artefacts that process privacy-relevant data can be addressed by Self-Determination Theory (SDT) and its established instruments. In this paper, we discuss how the theory and its methodological knowledge can be considered for user-centric privacy management. We set the stage for studying motivational factors to improve user engagement in identifying privacy needs and preserving privacy when utilizing or aiming to adapt CPS or IoT applications according to their privacy needs. SDT considers user autonomy, self-perceived competence, and social relatedness relevant for human engagement. Embodying these factors into a Design Science-based CPS development framework could help to motivate users to articulate privacy needs and adopt cyber-physical technologies for personal task accomplishment.
