I present all the software that enables us to achieve observation and observatory management with maximum efficiency and with minimum human resource requirement. Also, my presentation will be focused to the policies and specifications for remote observation and proposal management systems that will eventually be a part of 'observatory management database.' Our unified telescope and instrument operation system implies that those who can control instruments can also control the telescope. Since the telescope operation is a sole responsibility of telescope operators, our remote observation system cannot allow remote observers to control instruments. Therefore, our remote observation system will comprise data browser, observation procedure editor and observation monitor. Proposal management system is a must tool for an observatory that accepts hundreds of proposals and handles hundreds of programs for either classical or queue/service observation in a single term. This system will include online proposal acceptance both for science merit nd for technical feasibility, online Observation Data Set builder and online tutorial or help desk for applicants.
