    Abstract In 2012, Meyerhoff Nielsen and Igari compared the eGovernment efforts and governance models of Denmark and Japan. Their analysis concluded that Japan could learn from the Danish approach to standardized formats and processes; share components and contents, especially basic technologies such as unique identifiers and digital signatures for coordinated, convenient services for the users; involve users to develop user-centric services; and establish inter-agency collaboration to achieve those goals. Here we find that Denmark and Japan have since followed different trajectories. Denmark has focused on online services, welfare technology, key enablers including standards and the backoffice, benefit realization and management of information technology projects. Whereas Japan has largely focused on key enablers, mainly electronic identifications, open data and open government. Both countries have largely retained their governance models for eGovernment. While both countries have successfully launched and completed various information communication technology initiatives since 2012, our analysis highlight the continued strength of the Danish governance and jointgovernmental cooperation model over the more fragmented Japanese approach.
