Abstract

Development and extensive use of information and communication technologies has led to important implications for public sectors throughout the world. As a result, in governmental services, citizens have been enjoying better quality services, in an efficient and effective manner. e-government, however, is more related to “government” rather than the “e” as the technical and technological one. The challenge is to use technologies to improve the capacities of government institutions, while improving the quality of life of citizens by redefining the relationship between citizens and their government. Accordingly, this chapter focuses on e-government applications highlighted to reach a more citizen centric e-government in Turkey. Especially, two concepts of e-government, content management system and measuring citizens’ satisfaction from e-services are underlined. Therefore, after giving a theoretical background first on e-government, content management and then measuring e-services satisfaction, new developments towards these concepts are accounted.
