E-Readiness is an assessment process for the ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) availability and use in a country. It consists in the calculation of a composite indicator based on a conceptual framework related to ICT aspects. The assessment report is used in E-Strategy to formulate action plans for e-Readiness index development. Several approaches are used for e-Readiness since the end of nineties; these approaches lack flexibility and require frequent and precise measurements. Thus, two issues are addressed in this paper: the missing measurements estimation problem and the lack of e-Strategy formulation assistance and simulation tools and approaches. Indeed, we propose in this paper an approach to define the transition matrix of the e-Readiness state equation based on a layered model. This construction leads to a state model related to the e-Readiness dynamic system and then is used with KALMAN Filter to cover the two addressed issues. Indeed, the commands variables are indicators that can be manipulated by e-Strategy stakeholder and the KALMAN filter estimation and prediction functions are used as a simulator. For validation, we constructed a model based on the I2010 e-Readiness initiative and we tested the convergence of the model and its prediction function. Results are encouraging since the tested model prediction function converges in 24 cases out of 27 (89%). © 2005 - 2014 JATIT & LLS. All rights reserved. Source

In this paper, we introduce a new approach to facilitate the calculation of relevance and noise abatement in information research systems in Arabic language. Our method is to remove morphosemantic ambiguity due to agglutination and lack of vocalization of the Arabic words. To do, we have proposed to transform words to semantic gene. The latter represent an accurate determination of the word meaning. They contain the type, context, definition and vocalized shape of all possible cases may be taken in the Arabic word. In our approach we consider all possible meanings of the terms by applying a morphosemantic variation based on a recursive algorithm. Obtained variants are filtering by using of the sentence context, user profile and the Arabic phrase synthesis rules. The result is a semantically coherent text ready to be used by an information search system. © 2005 - 2012 JATIT & LLS. Source

E-Strategy is the process used to evaluate and develop the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) integration in a country. This process is composed of three phases: the diagnostic phase named e- Readiness is used to evaluate the ICT infrastructure and its use in a country, e-Strategy formulation phase carries out the definition of how to develop the e-Readiness of the country, the implementation of this e- Strategy is the third phase of the process. Several approaches are used for e-Readiness but the lack of indicators measures (data) limits its development. Also, there is a lack of e-Strategy formulation approaches. We propose in this paper: 1) a new classification of the e-Readiness indicators inspired from the IS (Information Systems) urbanization model; 2) a mathematical model based on this new classification with the aim to cover some of standard approaches limits. This model should lead to a framework for the formulation of the e-Strategy and present a state model that can use the data analysis tools for dynamic systems like filtering mechanisms to cover the lack of data problem. © 2005 - 2012 JATIT & LLS.
