However, if you wish not to receive this newsletter in the future please click on the 'Manage your subscription' icon at the bottom of this newsletter and set it to your desired setting.
The first five months of 2009 have been very exciting for all of us at Kovair. After working feverishly for several months we were successful in releasing our comprehensive SaaS offering for the ALM suite of applications in late March and we just formally announced Release 6.0 for the Kovair Global Lifecycle Solution. We consider this one of the most comprehensive ALM and IT Service Management solutions in the industry today. It has multi browser compatibility, dash board reporting, advanced task based process with versioning capability and an excellent cross entity traceability that can be graphically represented for all entities in any application as a very simple network diagram and many more features that I cannot cover here. That is why we are all very excited and euphoric at Kovair.
Soon to follow will be our release of an Applications Development Platform - Platform as a Service - PaaS for enterprises of any size to develop their own specific applications with codeless, drag and drop configurations. The best way to describe this is that any business user can use this platform to create their desired applications without needing a programmer or software developer to do it for them! This is made possible by the mouse click configurability of Kovair for all aspects of the applications entities, rules engine, forms and processes or workflows. This capability is being offered as SaaS on the cloud on a monthly subscription basis. There is no better empowerment of the business user that is constantly constrained in his or her ability to do their jobs efficiently by a lack of IT resources or outsourcing of such resources. They now have Kovair as a possible choice to create their desired applications. Today's IT savvy employee is in a perfect position to take advantage of such a capability. Please visit www.kovair.com and go to entreprise service bus solution on the home page for more details.
If you are looking to reduce the cost of your applications development, improve quality and delivery and manage your outsourced partners or product development, then you owe it to yourself to look at what Kovair is able to offer. We think you will be extremely pleased with what we have created. It is one of the most comprehensive tools available on the browser 24x7 from any of your company's locations globally as it is 100% browser based and allows all professionals to collaborate on a single platform and a single interface for multiple functions.
Let me also inform you that I've just started a blog at www.kovair.com/blog I'll be providing frequent updates about what's happening at Kovair. Please visit our new blog.

There are a total of 9 unmarked boxes; each contains 10 balls of the same size, color and appearance. Each ball weighs 1 lb. The 10th box contains 10 balls with the same appearance but each ball weighs 1 lb., 1 oz. There is a weighing scale which can be used to weigh any number of boxes or any number of balls together and measure the total weight in lbs. and oz.

Mark each box by a number 1,2,3…10. Take one ball from box #1, take two balls from box #2…and take 10 balls from box #10. Altogether, you should have 1+2+3+…+10=55 balls. Put them on the weighing scale. If all balls were of the same 1lb weight, the 55 balls would show a total weight of 55 lbs. But it will be more than 55 lbs. since some of the balls are heavier by 1 oz. each. Now if the total weight is say 55 lbs. and 4 oz. then you know the box #4 has the heavier balls since we have taken 4 balls from box #4. Similarly if it the total weight is 55 lbs. 7 oz. then it is the box #7.
