PROJECT INFRANET ENABLING INDIA TO MEET THE WORLD AT ITS STANDARDS barcampchennai2006 vijayanand
? ? THE STORY BEHIND: WHAT? PROJECT INFRANET Project InfraNET is an initiative that has grown out of the frustrations in working with the bureaucratic system here in India. Coming from a background where many like myself have had the chance to experience what a society with an infrastructure backbone would look like, and with the background that India is the biggest powerhouse of IT resources, Project InfraNET is an attempt to bring order, and collaboration across government offices and institutions here in India.
PROJECT INFRANET ? ? THE INSPIRATION: WHY? I admit that the Inspiration behind the InfraNET project has been very personal. As as entrepreneur I have had the opportunity to live in the west and to succeed in my endeavours. I can’t even fathom if I would be facing the same outcome if I did a place-shift and followed the same course of action here in India. It takes 15 mins to register a company in Canada and more than 96 days to do half the work here in India – and three months can break a business, crippling you against competitors.
THE CHANGES AHEAD: WHAT? PROJECT INFRANET ? ? What the InfraNET promises us, is a society where there is order. A society where there is a system in place to keep each other accountable and that is very important to be a successful democratic nation. It promises a future where our kids and their generation will have the opportunity to challenge the world at its standards, and wouldn’t have to live with the inconveniences of everyday hazzles, the way we do. InfraNET promises a highly ordered, efficient, and accountable system in place, for all.
PROJECT INFRANET ? ? ALL THE REASONS: FOR WHOM? Think about this: We still have no way of exactly counting the number of people who get affected by natural disasters such as the Tsunami. What we go by is the number of body counts. What happens to those, whose bodies aren’t recovered? Are they forgotten forever? And simply because they weren’t popular enough to be missed? Project InfraNET is a initative, a voice for those who can’t help themselves.
? ? PROJECT INFRANET PLAN OF EXECUTION: HOW? We live in a nation full of hopeful youth, whose hopes are crushed by harsh realities of unemployment. Most of them never get a chance to experience real-life work scenarios during their academic years to pursue their passions. InfraNET is planned to be broken into smaller modules and distributed across campuses so that students can get a chance to take them up as final year projects to work on. Apart from giving them the opportunity to build a system they could depend on, it also gives them a chance to understand what goes into building a system.
? PROJECT INFRANET ? PROJECT TIMELINE: WHEN? We are looking at a timeline of sometime before the end of five years for this project to be deployed in real- life. We are competing against countries like China, and the need for an infrastructure is urgent. If we don’t take this moment to put our outsourcing revenues into a lasting backbone, we might regret it when the hype finally fades out.
BE A PART OF THE JOURNEY! HOW? ? ? PROJECT INFRANET Drop an . Give a call. And we’ll take it from there. I am looking for a team of engineers and administrators who can form the CORE of distributing and collaborating the different segments of the project across campuses.
