-===== For Organisations Considering Sahana ====== +
- +
-Sahana is a web-based disaster management application that provides management solutions, focusing on large-scale humanitarian disasters. It enables enhanced coordination by promoting integrated information gathering. It assists collaboration by providing a number of communication mechanisms in the aftermath of a disasters. Sahana is built from free and open source software and released under [[http://www.opensource.org|OSI]] licenses, which means all users are free to download and use it (and are even free to create commercial derivatives of it)[[doc:about|...]] +
- +
-== How Sahana is Useful in Disaster Situations == +
- +
-Sahana functions both **online** as well as a **stand alone** tool for disaster management, depending on the operational considerations. Users can access it via their local machine, from within the network, as part of a corporate intranet or anywhere in world via the Internet. This means it can be installed on a laptop, for workers in the field and at a central command center for overall coordination. When machines are linked, all information can be synchronised, via [[wp>USB]], [[wp>CD-R]] the [[wp>LAN]] or the Internet[[doc:about#how_sahana_coordinates_activities_occurring_in_multiple_locations|...]] +
- +
-== Supported Operating Systems and Web Browsers ==  +
- +
-Sahana supports **all modern operating systems and browsers**, including MS Windows, Mac OSX, Ubuntu and other Unix-like systems. Your browser must have JavaScript enabled and, for Agasti, your operating system must be able to run the [[wp>Apache_HTTP_Server|Apache HTTP Server]], the [[wp>PHP]] programming language and [[wp>MySQL]] database software. If running Eden then you will need to run Python. If you don't know what these are, the Installation Guides below will assist you. +
- +
-== Deployments and Case Studies ==  +
- +
-Sahana's strength is also in its track record being deployed for disasters around the world. Known deployments of Sahana include those for the governments of Pakistan, Philippines, Peru, America, and Bangladesh. The [[dep:deployments | full list of Sahana deployments and pre-deployments, some with case studies, ]] highlights how a community of partners can work to deliver the Sahana solution at a time of need. +
