Abstract
Information technologies are transforming the social fabric, allowing the formation of new forms of organization and social interaction (CASTELLS, 2001). This set of technology used by the government (eGov) is enhancing communication and changing the way of provision of services to citizens. The speed with which technological changes are occurring, especially in the face of mobile technologies (mGov), brought profound changes in the infrastructure environment. Government organizations are not using corporately this infrastructure to deliver services to citizens. Recent study in mGov projects suggests that this complexity projects not prospered by the lack of business model alternatives (LANZA; CUNHA, 2013).The imperatives restrict organizational variety and give rise to a discrete number of settings: environment, structure, leadership and strategy (MILLER, 1987). Aiming to verify the configuration for mGov projects, this research take place on the following question: how environmental, structural, leadership, strategic and sustainability dimensions are configured in business models mGov? The goal of this research is to design a conceptual Business Model in mGovernment with a particular focus on low cost and long range technologies for developing countries.
