Title

M-government: Technologies, Applications and Challenges

Abstract

The emergence of Mobile Technology (MT) has enabled the government to transform from Electronic Government (e-government) to Mobile Government (m-government). This paper proposed a framework based on the theory of Task-Technology Fit (TTF) to understand MTs and their implications for m-government applications. Following the framework, we reviewed current MTs, categorised e-government tasks and reviewed and summarised existing m-government applications. To measure the degree of fit between MTs and government tasks performed through them, and its importance in the successful m-government implementation, we then discussed the benefits and challenges of m-government.
