    CYBRARIANTM Asia’s first revolutionary Library Management Software System was launched by CR2 Technologies Ltd., Ahmedabad (India).

    CYBRARIANTM – is a next generation web based, seamless & fully integrated Library Management software System hosted on a Remote Server. This is based on SaaS (Software as a Service) concept where users have to pay-as-you-use basis.

     CYBRARIANTM  was launched during LIBRARIAN® Users Meet held in the city on 26th July’08.  A group of librarians across the country, who are active users of LIBRARIAN® – a Library Management Software, assembles once in a year to share & discuss their problems & experience with the Library Management software. The experience of each librarian is unique and they come out with new ideas to improve & to add new features to the software to make it more functional, user friendly & effective, the company announced today. “CYBRARIANTM allows the librarians to access & run the software with the help of an ordinary low cost PC having a web browser and they can carry out on line all the transactions like Acquisition, Cataloguing, Circulation, Periodicals Management (PMS), Article Indexing, Reports Management etc. as if the entire application is running on their desk,” said Suyash K., the company’s Chief Executive Officer, CR2. “One can access the application anytime (24x7x365) from anywhere, & from any machine with built in webOPAC facility in the software. At a very low hosting fee, CYBRARIANTM provides users facilities like Software Usage, Secured Data Storage & Management, Virus Protection, Backups, Patch Management, Product Updates, Technical Support, Maintenance etc. CYBRARIANTM follows all the international standards like MARC21, Z39.50, AACR2, MARCXML, ISO 2079 etc. and is having UNICODE (Multilingual) facility. The most attractive feature of CYBRARIANTM is that librarians or Resource Centre Manager can customize the application as per their requirements without the help or need from the software vendor. Moreover, the reports can also be self-customized.”

    “CYBRARIANTM  also allows the member libraries to form or create their own network of libraries from similar related subjects / background / industries for resource sharing by collecting, storing & disseminating information and would offer networked services like information about resources scattered in the  libraries throughout the world,  referencing materials to meet the requirements of students, researchers, scholars & the general public, Inter Library Loan etc. without incurring any extra cost, “ said Sohaon K., Chief Operating Officer of the company.   “CYBRARIANTM   is the result of 10+ man years of research & development and helps libraries to reduce their OPEX by 80-90%.

    SaaS is a new model for delivery of software over internet. It is a shift from packaged software to Software as a Service (SaaS). In this new model, the user is saved from the hassles of buying licensed copies of software like OS, R/DBMS, Application Software, Anti virus etc. They are also not required to buy costly hardware like Servers, PCs, Networking components etc. The user is also free from the daily problems of installation, management, maintenance, back up, security etc. Initial cost of Investment and recurring cost every month is as good as nil.  The recruitment of expert IT professionals can also be avoided. According to Gartner, the SaaS opportunity globally is estimated to be around $19.1 billion by 2011. McKinsey reports that the proportion of CIOs considering adoption SaaS applications in the coming year has gone from 38% a year to 61%. By 2010, at least 65 percent of all businesses will have deployed at least one SaaS application. According to Springboard Research, the Market for SaaS in India is expected to touch US$ 165 Million by 2010 (over Rs 700 Crores).
