E-government is more than a simple digitalization of government through the use of information communication technologies (ICTs). It is a whole-of-government transformation towards efficient, effective and citizen-centric service delivery. E-governance is moving one step further to establish the integral framework for transparent, accountable and trust-based decision-making processes for such service delivery. Although intrinsically related to each other, practice shows that successful e-government and e-governance are not synonymous, but complementary. Based on the first-hand data and findings of the United Nations E-government Survey of 2010, this paper demonstrates that three strategy clusters can bridge e-government and e-governance: Static Supply-based (SS); Dynamic Demand-driven (DD); and Interactive Integration (II) Strategies. It also maintains that although high-income countries fare better in building robust e-government systems, less well-off countries can make considerable strides in moving towards successful e-governance. Finally, the paper argues that strong and healthy e-government can hardly be sustained unless e-governance is strengthened.
