It is widely perceived that the nature of ICT is changing and so is the scale of the resulting economic and societal impact around Europe. Continued and accelerating technological progress, market changes arising from globalization and convergence, and a growing societal acceptance of the new technologies, amount to a step-change in what it is able to be achieved with ICT. This paper tries to identify the current status and the progression achieved so far in EU with regards to the eGovernment area. Specific reference is being made to the EU-10 case, attempting to pinpoint the level of eReadiness progression achieved in recent years. It further detects accomplishments and shortcomings as well as further drivers and barriers shaping the current situation towards the apt EU alignment. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2007.
