How must the eGovernment architecture be structured in order to serve clients as interoperable and beneficial solutions? In public administration, information and services are often interconnected across several offices and departments and the various federal structures (Confederation, cantons, communes). This requires interoperable eGovernment services, a high degree of coordination and a standardised eGovernment architecture in order to achieve the greatest possible benefit for clients and administrations.
The guide describes eGovernment architecture management in terms of the design and operation of eGovernment architecture. The features, activities and success factors defined in it are intended to provide a swift introduction to the administration.
Modularly structured solutions are part of the vision of a "building block eGovernment": a small number of standardised components, standardised interfaces, shared data usage, a joint technical platform and services which can be assembled in any number of ways.
