*Transforming Public Services for the next Generation*

 *Date: **July 27-28, 2009** *

*Description:* Over the past few years, governments in developing countries
have formulated their National e-Governance plans and have been actively
pursuing the deployment of various projects under these plans. However, the
task of transforming governments is not easy. While technology alone cannot
transform governments, it is a commonplace knowledge that technologies have
a great role to play in the march towards next generation of services for
the citizens. In the fast paced world of technology, new approaches have
constantly been extending the boundaries of what is possible. The pace of
change is evidenced by the fact that terms like SOA, WOA, community
sourcing, cloud computing, software-as-a-service, mobile government and Web
2.0 that seem almost common place today, were not in the lexicon only a few
years ago.

*Government Transformation Forum 2009* endeavors to enhance collaboration
and exchange of learning practices among the industry, academia, civil
society organizations and the public sector on the latest developments that
have the potential of impacting the delivery of government services to the
next generation.. Through this forum, the organizers intend to keep the
stakeholders abreast of the latest trends and cutting edge technologies so
that the e-Government programs are designed keeping in view the needs of the
next generation. Special tracks on Cloud Computing, Web 2.0 technologies,
Mobile Transformation Initiatives, e-Revenue Administration are some of the
highlights of Government Transformation Forum 2009. The details regarding
