E-governance is a factor in technological innovation and reinvention of the administrative management processes.
The synergy effect is derived from lower administrative costs and faster response to business demands. A big advantage of e-Business governance is the accuracy of the information generated in real time and transparent access to electronic services.

On-line management has an important role for active participation of citizens in all processes of society.
By e-Governance can be acheved more effective management at all levels (central and local), more convenient government services, greater public access to information and more accountability to citizens through the use of ICT. It is also a tool for citizens in the direction of higher activity and their role in the development of democratic processes.

4. Discussion forum – application of video-conferencing technology for e-democracy

It is expected the results of research involving the use of videoconference technology to contribute to the implementation of various initiatives for electronic collaboration in the administrative and management area as well as in particular for the expansion of the electronic democracy.
Working in professional networks in conjunction with e-Governance requires the presentation of separate development and expansion of contacts in thematic and practical aspects of national, regional and international levels. The main objective of such cooperation is the exchange of information and knowledge, leading to greater efficiency and effectiveness.
Integration of research teams working in this area affects the overall policy by sharing experience, training, leading to sustainability of results and is a means to actually achieve "good governance".
