On July 12, 2000, Executive Order No. 265 approved
and adopted the Government Information System Plan (GISP) as framework
and guide for all computerization efforts in government to enhance overall
governance and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the bureaucracy.
To ensure the full and effective implementation of the
GISP, all government agencies and instrumentalities, including local government
units (LGUs), shall align their respective computerization projects with the
priorities identified in the GISP.
The national vision is for Filipino citizens anywhere in the
country and in other shores, as well as current and potential foreign investors
anywhere in the world, to have access to government information and services.
After an analysis of identified information systems (IS) gaps
versus technologies were made, the following emerged as the top technologies to
consider when implementing the GISP of which our e-commerce implementation is
- Internet-based Technologies
- Data Warehousing
- Distributed Databases
- Virtual Private Network (VPN)
Five other technologies deserve further consideration. These are:
- Electronic Commerce (E-Commerce)
- Electronic Document Management
- GIS and Remote Sensing and Related Spatial Technologies
- Online Learning Techniques
- Wireless/Mobile Computing
