The E2ECA project (E-Government to E-Commerce Comparative Analysis) just concluded the cluster analysis phase. In that phase the team tried to identify the main challenges that e-governement and e-commerce are facing, how these challenges are being addressed and what these two sectors can learn from each other. The next phase will be conducted in January 2009, where integrated focused groups, both from the public and private sectors would be analyzed together.
