Toward Government as a Platform: An Analysis Method for Public Sector Infrastructure


Kuhn, Peter; Zavolokina, Liudmila; Balta, Dian; Matthes, Florian (2023). Toward Government as a Platform: An Analysis Method for Public Sector Infrastructure. In: 18th International Conference on Wirtschaftsinformatik, Padeborn, 18 September 2023 - 21 September 2023. AIS Electronic Library (AISeL), online.

Abstract

Government as a Platform (GaaP) is a promising approach to the digital transformation of the public sector. In practice, GaaP is realized by platform-oriented infrastructures. However, despite successful examples, the transformation toward platform-oriented infrastructures remains challenging. A potential remedy is the analysis of existing public infrastructure regarding its platform orientation. Such an analysis can identify the gaps to an ideal platform-oriented infrastructure and, thus, support the transformation toward it. We follow the design science research methodology to develop a four-dimensional analysis method. We do so in three iterations, and, after each iteration, evaluate the method by its application to infrastructures in practice. With regard to theory, our results suggest extending GaaP conceptualizations with a specific emphasis on platform principles. With regard to practice, we contribute an analysis method that creates proposals for the improvement of infrastructures and, thus, supports the transformation toward GaaP.
