gCitizen: Using Grids for Creating an Integrated View of the Citizen in an eGovernment Framework
Fifteenth IEEE International Workshop on Enabling Technologies: Infrastructure for Collaborative Enterprises
From the point of view of the Administration, a citizen
is the aggregation of the pieces of information belonging
to each of the administrative organizations that compose it.
By now this data management has been carried out storing
and managing documents in paper. Recently, the governments
have invested effort to use the ICT as a substitute of
the paper in their procedures. This kind of initiatives has
been traditionally denominated as eGovernment, and makes
possible a lot of information to be online.
This paper reviews the technological tendencies in the
Public Administration, and proposes the usage of Grid technology
as an information integration method to provide an
homogeneous vision of the information about the citizens.
It has been used the Globus Toolkit 4 WSRF technology
to design gCitizen, a Grid middleware for the transparent
management of the information about citizens, which takes
advantages of the features provided by the toolkit, and introduces
new services to improve it.
