How to send order details instantly once order is created

You can use the sales_order_place_after event to get the order data. This event is dispatched in Mage_Sales_Model_Order::place()

Mage::dispatchEvent('sales_order_place_after', array('order'=>$this));

The observer method should look like this:

public function placeOrderAfter($observer){
    $order = $observer->getEvent()->getOrder();
    //your code

Next, you can do whatever you like with the order data (create cron tasks, send data to the external application, etc).
