Open Source Software can change the world for the better
Zyxware Technologies a firm based out of Trivandrum, Kerala, is pushing forward with the concept of "Open Source for a better world". To prove their point they have developed a very useful application and have released it for free under the GNU General Public License. The application is a web based application that allows hospitals to report cases of diseases at the point the patient is treated at the hospital. This results in almost real time collection of data about diseases occurring in a state and helps in taking necessary preventive steps to fight the spread of the disease.

Additionally the system maps the collected information about the occurrences of the disease on a map of the state to aid in easy visual analysis of the situation. This is done using Google Maps API which is provided for free by Google. The system has basic analytical and reporting capabilities built into it. Since it is released under GNU GPL this allows for anybody to download the source code and modify and use it.

By releasing this software which could cost several thousands of dollars in the international market, the company is hoping to highlight on two specific points - a) It is possible to increase the efficiency of government systems by strategically using open source technologies, b) Youth of today should take more risks in trying out their ideas and create innovative solutions that address todays needs and succeed in the process.

More information about the software can be found at the site The press release is available at
