The initial phase of Yemen's e-government strategy will connect all government web sites to KnowledgeView’s Rapid Publish content management system.
Yemen has begun a ten year, US$60 million migration towards e-government with a project to publish all ministerial information online. The initial phase of Yemen's e-government initiative will connect all ministries to a network and all government web sites to KnowledgeView’s Rapid Publish content management and cross-media publishing system.Rapid Publish will enable Yemem’s government bodies to classify and display data from multiple sources, including photos, wire feeds, legacy systems and online databases. The content management application is then able to convert the data into standard formats and XML representations.Rapid Publish’s ability to edit and combine content items to create value-added, context-specific documents are also significant advantages.“By using the Rapid publish applications, the Yemeni government will be in a position to control the e-government more efficiently and will also be able to lower costs,” says Ammar Al Asaam, general manager for KnowledgeView.“This will definitely help the government achieve its planned objectives with regard to G2C services,” he adds.
