Abstract

In recent years it is globally recorded that there is an increased demand of citizens for greater transparency of operations and accountability of governments to the public. The means to achieve this requirement are the IT technologies through the development of appropriate applications. The reproduction of information has taken massive proportions resulting to the insufficiency of the traditional methods and knowledge management tools. Towards the development of smart applications Internet search and knowledge management, we present in this work related technologies focusing on ontologies.
