The early stages of computerisation were preoccupied with managing activities such as operations, programming, data collection etc. This then developed into information systems. Such systems include: customer management systems, financial systems, human resource systems, business intelligence systems, asset management systems, waste management systems, document management systems, workflow management systems, and hundreds of other systems. In recent years, these systems are being integrated with each other to such an extent that it is oftentimes necessary to view them, not as hundreds of different systems, but one single system comprising of several systems, often referred to as enterprisewide information system. Many organizations however have encountered difficulties when attempting to modify enterprise resource planning systems to their business operations. These factors led to the growth of Enterprise Architecture. This paper focuses on studying the trend in the development of the Botswana Enterprise system and it’s implication on seamless government. The research is theoretical, it surveys literature and uses a case study approach. The study focused on using the University of Botswana as a case study to seamless government. The study at the end proposes some implications of working towards a seamless government.
