Samooha claims to be a business computing platform that unifies all the activities of a business cycle into one platform offered by Zudha, India, the developers of finest software in Open and Proprietary software domain. Samooha promises to be the first disruptive business software application from India that infuses paradigm shift in business computing. The openness and liberal approach applied in Samooha- Empowered Business Networks would drastically change the business exposure of the product/service providers who adopt the platform to continuously evolve their business IT adoption that would be second to none in the world. In short Samooha would interconnect the small business owners more than ever before.

Samooha is a unified Business Platform for performing all activities of a business cycle under one desktop application and thereby reducing precious input hours that can be utilized for other business needs. The idea is to drastically reduce the duplicate entry of data at dual points of business transactions.

The basic assumption in business is that every business entity has 3 distinct activities that can be broadly classified as buying, processing and selling. With the assumption of every entity as a buyer and seller Samooha offers whole new way of utilizing business computing to the advantage of increasing business exposure of small businesses.

The web is broken and business information computing cycle is scattered all over. The integration of disparate systems have been cumbersome for large enterprises who were early adopters of IT systems. The lessons learned have been applied well in Samooha to provide alternatives for business enterprises all over the world to conduct business without barrier with seamless flow of information on demand directly from source to destination and the other way.

OSS/J - OSS through Java Initiative

www.ossj.org The OSS through Java Initiative ("OSS" stands for "Operations Support Systems") produces a standard set of Java technology-based APIs that support the business and technology goals of the lean operator:

* End-to-end management of core business processes
* Flexible, component-based solutions
* Standardized technologies to ensure vendor independence

Building on the success of Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE), XML and Web Services technologies in enterprise applications, our APIs help Service Providers jump start the deployment of end-to-end services on next-generation networks and leverage the convergence of telecommunications and Internet-based solutions. The APIs are standardized under the latest Java Community ProcessSM (JCP) program. JCP deliverables for each application area consist of a specification, a reference implementation, and a technology compatibility kit-all of which, including source code, are available to the industry free of charge.

Industry Adoption

Since its inception in September 2000, OSS/J has had the backing of some of the world's leading Network Equipment Providers (NEPs), Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and System Integrators (SIs). More than 60,000 of our APIs have been downloaded and many leading companies have successfully integrated business OSS/BSS applications using OSS/J API's. Early in 2004, leading telecommunications service providers requested that OSS/J create a Service Provider Advisory Council charged with setting Initiative priorities, encouraging industry adoption, building an economic model, and expanding liaisons. At TeleManagement World 2004 in Nice, the TeleManagement Forum announced a joint working relationship with OSS/J based on the two groups' complementary assets. The partnership effectively offers a rapid implementation option to solution developers who are aligning to the TM Forum's Next Generation Operations Systems and Software (NGOSS) framework and who choose to implement in Java and Web services technology.

The demand to keep costs low while addressing the needs of the lean operator have put added pressure on system integrators. OSS/J's careful mapping of its APIs to the TeleManagement Forum's widely adopted enhanced Telecom Operations Map (eTOM) means that all players now have common process integration rules to follow when implementing new solutions. Integration efforts consume far fewer resources, so SIs can concentrate on provide high margin products and services.

OSS/J helps SIs by:

* Common APIs to ensure across the board integration with NEPs and ISVs
* Allows you to please customers by reducing integration costs by up to 70 percent
* Fosters an expanded market place for comprehensive OSS/BSS solutions
* Enables you to respond more effectively to service provider mandates
