Abstract

The technological advances and the use of the internet have favoured the appearance of a great diversity of web applications, among them Web Portals. Through them, organizations develop their businesses in a really competitive environment. A decisive factor for this competitiveness is the assurance of data quality. In the last years, several research works on Web Data Quality have been developed. However, there is a lack of specific proposals for web portals data quality. Our aim is to develop a data quality model for web portals focused on three aspects: data quality expectations of data consumer, the software functionality of web portals and the web data quality attributes recompiled from a literature review. In this paper, we will present the first version of our model.
