Welcome to my blog

by Andrea Di Maio  |  September 14, 2008  |  Comments Off on Welcome to my blog

I am not entirely new to blogging in Gartner, as I have been a regular contributor to our officlal Government research blog (Innovating Government) for quite some time now. While our that blog refers to established Gartner research positions, I will use this one to support my own research, vet initial thoughts on the topics I cover and hopefully engage in interesting conversation with whoever wants to share his or her views on those.

I have three areas of interest that I would like to cover in this blog.

  • The first one is electronic or citizen-centric or transformational government, depending on how people like to name it (it is amazing how many terms get invented and used to repurpose and regurgitate very similar concepts) and in particular how it is changing through the use of social computing and web 2.0.  I published a post on our Government research blog about The Future of Government is No Government, which summarizes pretty well my views on the subject.
  • I also cover open source in the public sector. I am not so much interested in the actual use of open source software in relatively “traditional” areas, such as operating systems, office suites, middleware, DBMS and so forth, but in understanding its potential in the government application space.
  • Finally, I am interested in what governments are doing to “green” their IT and more in general in how public sector organizations can use IT to become more environmentally sustainable.

I am looking forward to interesting conversations with all of you!
