One of the key challenges in electronic government (e-government) is the development of systems that can be easily integrated and interoperated to provide seamless services delivery to citizens. In recent years, Semantic Web technologies based on ontology have emerged as promising solutions to the above engineering problems. However, current research(More)

In e-government, ontologies are being used to describe and specify e-government services (e-services) because they enable easy composition, matching, mapping and merging of various egovernment services.

In recent years, a number of developed countries have employed ontology in e-government projects. On the other hand, Sub Saharan African (SSA) countries have followed the trends towards e-government and adoption of new technologies during the past eight years, resulting in many applications developed in various government departments. However, little work(More)
Relational databases (RDB) are the main sources of structured data for government institutions and businesses. Since these databases are dependent on autonomous hardware and software they create problems of data integration and interoperability. Solutions have been proposed to convert RDB into ontology to enable their sharing, reuse and integration on the(More)
Different platforms and mechanisms have been developed to store and query ontologies in relational databases (RDB). However, very little have been done to identify and discuss the mechanisms used. In this paper, two of the most popular open-source ontology storage platforms namely Sesame and Jena are used to identify the mechanisms used to store ontologies(More)
