Free & open source software – Infrastructure for e-Government
Vietnam has not yet official documentation of standard and application architecture for the electronic government (e-Government) at the Government – National level, one of the vital requirements for successfully building e-Government applications - services for a country. Reference Software Architecture (RSA) is an important document for application perspective, one of points related to technical and technological aspects in the entire e-Government Architecture. In this talk, we propose a such RSA for the Vietnam e-Government, based on the e-Government model of the developed countries. We point out that to build a such sustainable, independent and secured e-Government in accordance with this reference architecture, FOSS is the first choice not to be missed.
