The cases can be used for practitioner/strategy guidance, training materials, or research.
Each case outlines the nature of the ICT application, the drivers and objectives behind the case, its stakeholders, an evaluation of cost/benefit and success/failure, analysis of key enablers and challenges, and a summary set of lessons learned and recommendations.
