Abstract—Nowadays smart phones play an important roll between business and users. Therefore, businesses decided to go mobile. Municipalities and organizations that provide services to the public through E-Services will benefit from utilizing mobile features along with choosing the appropriate development approach. Services will be more users friendly and will reach more citizens. Developing in house M-Services that mirror E-Services need to be handled systematically through a software development methodology. As a step forward in this direction, we propose eM2ethodology (Electronic to Mobile methodology) to extend E-Services to M-Services. The methodology is based on existing methodologies in two fields' web development and mobile development. The reason behind choosing these fields is that the methodology should be able to transfer and extend the E-Services of an application to M-Services. The methodology concentrates on minimizing the risk of failure and delivering the project in an efficient time. We validated the methodology by transforming EServices of Omani public authority of consumer protection website into M-Services as a mobile web application. Validation is on progress as this is ongoing research. Moreover in the future we are going to validate the methodology against other development approaches.
