Digitisation, big boost to Web applications
Hyderabad , Nov. 23
BODHTREE Consulting Ltd has drawn up plans to leverage its Web services technology competency in areas such as e-governance while laying special emphasis on content e-enablement applications.
The content e-enablement solutions are targeted at sectors such as publication, library, healthcare, banking, insurance, education and Government departments where digitisation has become commonplace, replacing the traditional micro film approach.
The Chief Operating Officer of BodhTree, Mr Sanjiv Gupta, said the company had embarked on expansion as Web services solutions space was growing.
Indian companies could connect to external world seamlessly and save on costs.
The Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Confluent Software, Mr Rajiv Gupta, who was earlier head of the Hewlett Packard e-speak initiative, said these solutions did not need re-engineering but could be built on the existing information technology infrastructure to stay competitive as was demonstrated by organisations such as eBay.
With e-enablement solution and data digitisation , corporations will be able to digitise content from second-generation storage and retrieval methods to advanced digital format.
This would enable a dynamic interface with anybody across the globe over the Internet backbone, Mr Gupta said addressing a press conference today.
He cited the case of digitisation of the Deccan Chronicle newspaper, for which the company had managed to digitise over 65 years of newspapers and its archival information.
The company had also provided content syndication solution to the Times of India group. "We are in parleys with several media houses to extend digitisation solutions," Mr Sanjiv Gupta said.
While this may look little early in the Indian context, already many organisations are adopting Web services applications to bring in efficiencies, particularly financial services players.
Within India, the e-governance thrust is one area that is bound to witness a lot of Web services work initially aimed at helping reach out citizen services, Mr Rajiv Gupta said.
