The paper presents the design and implementation of a web service architecture for providing e-learning and dedicated information system facilities. The web portal we describe is a solution for information system integration, based on a single-sign on authentication framework and database synchronization facilities. The solution is based on MS technology and provides integrated e-learning and dedicated information systems facilities. User category permissions for accessing the portal services – both for the genuine portal functionalities and for the dedicated information system ones – are modelled based on specific groups that are retained in a global database. We consider that the solution we propose has a good generality degree and may be applied in various organization cases.
