Empowerment of Farmers through ICT

Farmers  are not just gaining access to better technological information and options , but are also gaining market information and  access to more remunerative market, to become able to get better returns from the use of their available resources. To provide internet connectivity to whole communities where individuals do not have financial or technical means for this, there have been a growing number of experiments with setting up ICTcenters  at village level, as has been done

Use of mobile phones with multiple applications is now expanding rapidly in  developing countries,  giving rural people who have no access to landline phones an   opportunity to communicate quickly, and fairly cheaply, with others within their and other   communities. Voice communication by phone is important, but so is 'texting' with cheaper and equal fast SMS (short  message service) communication. Currently becoming more    important is the access to internet services and Information  that 'smart' mobile phones can live, making ICT no longer dependent on computers ,either desktop or laptop.Farmers' access to marketing information  and weather forecast s has begun change and  how they manage and benefit from their agriculture. Mobile banking is being added as another application for mobile phones to give rural people greater access to financial resources, and to get more benefit from those resources that they already dispose of.

As the founder and CEO of Sajix, Mr. Pyala has observed that one of the reasons for the high cost of Healthcare in United states is the lack of information technology usage in this particular sector. Mr.Pyala felt that the Internet technology can be leveraged the right way to manage health care business processes in an efficient manner. He strongly felt that the existing technology (legacy) that is being used by the most of the practice management groups and hospitals need change in order to cater the present healthcare demand.

With that in mind, Mr. Pyala founded Sajix Corporation in 2005 to build a cost effective web based integrated healthcare solution with latest technology which will help healthcare organization to provide quality of care in cost effective manner. With the understanding that smaller physician practices and hospital needs cost effective solution, he created the Software as Service model where these healthcare entities can use the latest technology without being worried about hardware, other software and costly IT maintenance.
