Spreadsheets. 2. Accounting Softwares3. Office Tools. Lack of one complete package for disaster relief work management wasn't available.This results into need of a software package that can handle various tasks related to disaster Management. Hence Sahana was developed! 34. www.sahana.lk What is Sahana? Sahana Software Foundation 35. www.sahana.lk Sahana Software Foundation Sahana is web based application packageprovding solution to post disaster problemregarding various type of informationrequire to manage the disaster relief work. 36. www.sahana.lk History of Sahana Sahana Software Foundation Sahana Disaster Management System was developed after Tsunami 2004 by Lanka Software Foundation.The systemwas deployed by the Sri Lankan government's Center of National Operations (CNO), which included the Center of Humanitarian Agencies (CHA) The system was rebuilt from scratch in Apache, MySQL, and PHP/Perl. The system is available for free for anyone to download and customize and is distributed under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL). 37. www.sahana.lk Current stable version: 0.6.2.2 Sahana Software Foundation 38. www.sahana.lk Sahana Software Foundation 39. www.sahana.lk Sahana Software Foundation The main applications built into Sahana and problems they address so far are as follows: 1. Missing Person Registry- Helping to reduce trauma by effectively finding missing persons 2.

  • Take a little longer than normal release schedule.

46. Clean up code 47. Fix all outstanding bugs 48. Rigorous bug test & QA 49. Professional packaging with installation/configuration scripts for windows, Linux, MAC OSX, Solaris, portable applets, etc. 50. Professional documentation for installation & end-users. Sahana 1.0 Release Plan Sahana Software Foundation www.sahana.lk 51. www.sahana.lk Sahana Software Foundation

  • No, it wont be in Python.

52. No, it wont have all the bells and whistles planned for with the 0.7 and 0.8 releases and GSoC 2009 projects. 53. BUT when next major sudden onset disaster strikes, no one will hesitate to recommend Sahanas deployment. Sahana 1.0 launches Sahana into Stratosphere 54.

  • We need developers to support the 1.0 release.

55. Activities & tasks are documents on wiki:

Sahana Software Foundation www.sahana.lk Interesting Sahana sub projects Sahanapy This is a reimplementation of the originalSahana-idea to create a powerful RAD framework for Emergency Management Apps, ensuring a solid foundation for future enhancements by a diverse community of development groups. Its based on web2py framework. www.sahanapy.org 89. Sahana Software Foundation www.sahana.lk Interesting Sahana sub projects Why Sahanapy? Sahana is developed in a custom PHP framework which is based on designprinciples which have since become sub-optimal due to the emergence of newMVC frameworks & highly-interactive Web 2.0 UIs.The current codebase has grown organically since it was originally designed standards have broken down & the code is becoming harder to maintain.It is currently hard to access data from modules via consistent methods this is requiredfor serious integration e.g. in GIS & Messaging. 90.
