Abstract: As the number of countries realizing the benefits of e-Government continues to increase, the drive to implement e-Government results in the formulation of many strategic plans for it. Also, along with the increase in the use of Informational Systems, increases the number of modeling languages. The main aim of this Thesis is to investigate whether existing goal modeling languages can be effectively used for modeling e-Government strategic plans. First, we identify and study all the existing goal modeling languages. Then, we compare them and evaluate their ability to model a strategic plan. Finally, we apply the selected languages in a specific e-Government strategic plan and evaluate the models according to some criteria. The model has to be as simple as possible, easily comprehensive and able to represent all the elements of the strategic plan. The modeling languages used for goal modeling are ten and they include a total of twenty seven symbols. From these languages the most suitable for modeling a strategic plan seem to be the languages from the enterprise architecture field, due to their ability to model the motive beh ind a goal. We have chosen to model the European e-Government Action Plan with the use of ARCHIMATE and the Business Motivation Model. The conclusion that comes out of the modeling phase is that each language serves different purposes in the modeling phase . ARCHIMATE can be used to model simple strategic plans that do not give emphasis to the ways the goals will be achieved while, the Business Motivation Model can model more complicated and detailed strategic plans.
