E-Government Development Dynamics in the Context of the World Trends
AKATKIN Yury Mikhaylovich, YASINOVSKAYA Elena Donatovna

The development of Russian e-government in the context of global trends is the main objective of this article. In the opinion of the authors, Russiaĺs observable backlog is due to a slowdown in the growth of e-government against a significant progress shown by the leading countries. One of the reasons for such deceleration is the concentration of Russian e-government developersĺ efforts on building and rebuilding its infrastructure, instead of striving for the information sharing and the interoperability as a prerequisite for cross-agency interaction and seamless provision of public services. The lack of organizational and semantic interoperability is especially noticeable. The goals and objectives of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development have formed new global benchmarks for e-government development. They have to be analyzed and used as the priorities for the further evolution of e-government in Russia.
Keywords: e-government, interoperability, digital government, digitalization, systemic project, information sharing.
