The Intention Space Project

What we want to achieve

SourceForge Logo

It has been 11 years since the project of Intention Space was conceived. The project goal was to represent what we consider intentions behind business requirement and actions along with the software that facilitates it[i.e giving intentions a first class citizen status in software code] and there by give tremendous power in business and technology alignment area. What I have found in the last ten years is such an idea or dream can come into frution only through more easy and spontaneous interactions amongst the participants of a business activity. We can only ride on the available technology of the day to achieve the business goals of the day. Business and technology are intertwined beasts created by human interactions to make business gains. Intentions will always be illusive and dynamic. It is only by incremental adaptation and evolution of myriads of technology that we shall achieve the final business agility that Intention Space dreamt of. The purpose of IntentionSpace project has been thus refocussed towards integration of foundational technologies like context dictionary, mobile technology, and man-machine dialogs . We consider Intention Space Project will be of use to practicising software specialists who find themselves walking into the customers business with a whole suite of technology available in the market. The march of opensource projects in the last 11 years opens up a big promise that Intention Space will come about through software evolution. Intention Space project will be thus a project to help integrate available technologies through some foundational constructs like flow and focus , contextual dictionary, man-machine dialogs facilitation.June 2011,Sydney
