However this study is meant to identify the gaps and recommend process through which it could be assured that, Information Technology Solutions in the government, specifically Sindh Government can be implemented, used and maintained.
It identifies an over-all strategy for IT in Sindh Government. The study identifies wide gaps between, what is actually in place in the government and what are the expected required ingredients for proper IT usage.

Reliability, completeness and correctness of above functions need improvement. The technology has the solution, which has been attempted number of times to implement and use for the last many years, yet with no significant success.
Therefore the purpose of this work eventually became to identify issues that hinder the true implementation of the automated system (Like CMS) and then propose the workable solution to those challenges, in the form of classifying the needs, their expected levels for continued and smooth IT service and then identifying the gaps.
