This paper presents a service-oriented digital government infrastructure focused on efficiently providing customized services to senior citizens. We designed and developed a Web Service Management System (WSMS), called WebSenior, which provides a service-centric framework to deliver government services to senior citizens. The proposed WSMS manages the entire life cycle of third-party web services. These act as proxies for real government services. Due to the specific requirements of our digital government application, we focus on the following key components of WebSenior: service composition, service optimization, and service privacy preservation. These components form the nucleus that achieves seamless cooperation among government agencies to provide prompt and customized services to senior citizens.
Web service management system, WebSenior, digital government, service composition, service optimization, privacy preservation.
