"I see technology as a means to empower and as a tool that bridges the distance between hope and opportunity." - This vision of PM Narendra Modi is getting substance in the form of an own operating system, the improved Bharat Operating System Solutions (BOSS). This decision of going beyond the world of products and services, and manufacture its own OS is accounted to be a major leap of 'Make in India' Campaign. Idea behind Developing the BOSS As per Edward Snowden's leaked cables, India is one of the most exposed nations in the world when it comes to the cyberspace threats and attacks, especially by US and China. The hackers easily break through the India cyber security walls and sneak out the crucial information. By replacing Windows with an own operating system, the Indian Government can achieve the greater protection and more security of its data. Apart from this, below-mentioned factors are also responsible for this move:
Who Turned This Idea Into Reality? The C-DAC (Centre for Development of Advanced Computing) with the help of Gujarat Technical University, DRDO and private computer geeks laid out key imperatives and the framework for turning the vision of the 'own operating system' into reality. Also, the Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DEITY) also played a significant part in eradicating the minor flaws of this OS before the final handling to the government ministries.
Challenges That BOSS Might Face Earlier launched in the year 2007, BOSS saw poor response across the Government offices and departments. Due to low user-connect and few features, BOSS proved to be ineffective for mass scale implementation. However, the newest version unveiled this year, 2015, is promised to be infused with new codes, and functionalities. Yet, the few challenges it might face are:
With the development of this own operating system (BOSS), the stage is set for India to enhance its competence in every field and seek the global leadership. Let's keep our fingers crossed that the BOSS surpasses the performance expectations of everyone. And if things go well, the next version of this OS, EduBOSS will soon be released to empower the teachers and students.
