Connected Government: An Exploration of the UAE’s Identity Management Integration Strategy: Challenges Faced by Governments

Connected Government: An Exploration of the UAE’s Identity Management Integration Strategy: Challenges Faced by GovernmentsThis shift from system integration to enterprise integration provided government entities with the ability to link their integration needs with their overall strategic objectives by identifying which services a government entity can provide or need and leverage enterprise integration as a way to provide and consume these services (Daigneau, 2011; Wu, 2007). In hub-based integration, government entities can connect to a central or federated hub to send and receive data between them securely through re-usable messaging and integration interfaces providing performance improvements and scalability.
Combining identity management and enterprise integration, global trends provide government entities with the capability to provide integrated identity management solutions that will facilitate up-to-date population registers and provide identity owners with the capability to provide innovative ID-based services to other government entities and possibly businesses.

With the global trends in mind, a number of lingering challenges still face governments in achieving integrated identity management as follows:
• Lack of a government entity responsible for maintaining a national population register;
• Data privacy and confidentiality issues;
• Lack of a clear vision and cooperation between competing government entities; and
• Lack of a government-wide integration and interoperability framework
With the aforementioned challenges identified in addition to many other factors, such as the recent economic downturn, many countries are facing a challenge to drive the notion of a connected 24-hour government.
