Evaluation of Life-Event Portals: Multi-attribute Model and Case Study

  title={Evaluation of Life-Event Portals: Multi-attribute Model and Case Study},
  author={Anamarija Leben and Marko Bohanec},
The provision of life-event based public services is one of popular development trends of e-government programmes that have emerged in recent years. In the article, first a concept of life-event portal is briefly presented. The main emphasis of the article is on the methodology for the evaluation of lifeevent portals, which is based on multi-attribute modelling. The methodology helps to assess and compare electronic services, life-events and portals as a whole. The results of an analysis of…

The information society has developed with differing levels of success in Western Europe and the United States, as well as in Eastern Europe. E-government – a significant element of the information


How well the existing e-government supply in Slovenia meets the demand of its citizens is explored to show that the existing information is relatively useful yet incomplete and not very easily accessible and that internet users consider the simplification of administrative procedures, simplifying of e-services and one-stop-government as the most important factors for future e- government development.

User-centric Service Composition - Towards Personalised Service Composition and Delivery

This thesis addresses the problem of personalised service delivery through on demand composition of existing services, given that services can be exposed through the Internet, whenever users require a given functionality that cannot be delivered by a single existing service.



The Concepts of an Active Life-Event Public Portal

This paper is focusing on the methodological aspects of the knowledge-based Life-Event Portals, which can provide much more efficient provision of e-services than conventional e-portals.
