The Korea government has been already sharing their experiences related to the whole-of-government information resources (i.e., service, data, and information systems) with international community. The GEA is a very effective tool for transferring its knowledge and experiences to the international community because it’s total output of not only e-government practices but also the whole-of-government practices. The GEA can provide the benefits to other countries in terms of the following perspectives.
1) The Korea GEA evaluates the current information resources to be reused or to be abandoned and provides a basis for integrating government duplicated information resources scattered. From the GEA and GEAP, it is easy to identify which government organization has what kinds of information resources in real time. These experiences and outputs could serve as references for other national governments. In summary, the GEA provides the complete picture for managing of information resources by any country. Also, other countries can use this as a template for managing the e-government for current systems as well as new systems. Furthermore, this whole-of-government approach can be used to leverage the roles and responsibilities between central ministries and local governments. Finally, the GEA can provide a project management method for IT investment in government organization by a series of activities in planning, implementing, operating, and evaluating.
2) The GEA cases were benchmarked by other countries such as the Asia Development Bank, Vietnam, Honduras, Kyrgyzstan, Saudi Arabia and Japan. Many experts from those countries have visited Korea and learned about Korea’s whole-of-government approaches and its cases. This approach is different from that of the US Federal Enterprise Architecture and many countries have been showing great interests in the GEA. This approach can be used in any country for different purposes. It can be used for single e-government as well as the whole-government issues related to the planning, sponsorship, management, alignment, service quality improvement, integration, investment decisions, and communication among various stakeholders. The results of GEA can increase the transparency of government information resources, accountability of information management, and quality of government services and these experiences and results were transferrable to other countries because most of them are stored in architecture information.
3) The components of GEA can be shared and reused in other countries. The essential parts include the EA framework, reference models, meta-models, maturity models, and the whole-of-government EA management systems. These components can be applicable to other countries as a solution in a package format as well in an individual components format. The framework shows how individual government pursues the EA in connection with the whole-of-government. The meta-model shows how all the information lists can be managed by the government organization and their current goals as well as target ones. The maturity model shows the results of EA performances by individual organizations. Also, many architecture reference models provide individual organizations with business, process, service, and data models. Finally, the GEA management system shows EA information of individual as well as the whole-of-government.
