ADAPTIVE PROCESSES IN E-GOVERNMENT - A Field Report about Semantic-Based Approaches from the EU-Project “FIT”

Andrea Leutgeb, Wilfrid Utz, Robert Woitsch, Hans-Georg Fill

Abstract

For increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of public administration as well as improving the usability and adaptability of systems state-of-the-art semantic technologies can be combined with existing business process management (BPM) approaches in e-government. This position paper shows ontology-based approaches as implemented within the EU-project FIT. In FIT the customer approved business process modelling language ADOeGov® has been enriched with business rules in order to provide the necessary transparency, flexibility and efficiency.
