HYDERABAD: A web-enabled office management software was among three new Information Technology (IT) products launched at the GITEX India - 2006 which concluded here on Friday.

The software is a virtual office management solution for small- and medium-scale businesses. 'Casper spy', an anti-virus and anti-spasm software for detection, prevention and curing of viruses that attack the computer system, and 'one-key system restore kit' which is used as a backup device were also demonstrated, IT Minister, P. Sabita Indra Reddy, and Secretary, K. Ratna Prabha, told reporters while giving a wrap-up on the proceedings of GITEX.

They said the exhibition of products and services in IT, organised jointly by the State Government and Dubai World Trade Centre, was a big draw with visitors as 51,000 people turned up as against 25,000 last year. About 500 youths were absorbed for employment by IT companies in the job fair organised in collaboration with The Hindu as part of the event, they added.

'Computer shopper'

The 'computer shopper', the business arm of GITEX, recorded a turnover of Rs. 3.5 crores. A 4 per cent refund of Value Added Tax was given on purchases made by the visitors. There were 43 vendors as against only 20 last year.

They also said a conference on animation organised by NASSCOM attracted 400 delegates. The conference was of immense help to the State Government in its endeavour to set up an Animation Academy in the next academic year.

Conferences on e-governance, emerging trends in IT, role of women in ICT and support services and hardware and IT-enabled services were also organised successfully. They came up with recommendations.
