The paper examines the architecture and services of the e-learning platform and describes how the knowledge management system designed for IntelCities is supported by the IP’s digital library. It suggests the e-Learning platform,
knowledge management system and digital library developed under the IP provides the intelligence cities need to integrate them as a platform of semantically-rich e-Governance services. That is to say, an integrated platform of semanticallyrich e-Governance services with the intelligence which cities need to meet the expectations citizens have about the quality of such electronically enhanced products. The paper begins by outlining the integrated model of electronically enhanced governance (eGov) services adopted to represent the front-end, middleware and back-office functions of the IntelCities’ e-Learning, knowledge management (KM) and digital library. Having done this, the paper shall report on the search for an intelligent solution to the IP’s learning needs, knowledge transfer and capacity building requirements. It shall then go on to discuss the information technology (IT) underlying the solution adopted by the IP to integrate the electronically enhanced eGov services hosted on the eCity platform with the legacy systems operated by the public administrations involved in the project. From here the discussion shall then go on to examine how the e-Learning platform, KM system and digital library
developed by the IP as back-office functions have been integrated into the IntelCities middleware and delivered as frontend services to citizens.
