I am investigating a sponsorship project that may get funding.
What would be the most valuable free /OSS software that does not exist yet?
This are my suggestions.
1. Free Wrap system (superannuation management)
Wrap accounts let users invest in a wide range of investments through a single
interface such as the web. It manages all the statuary requirements for
Wrap accounts charge between 0.6-1.0 % of funds under management per year.
With Australian Super Funds having over $600 Billion up management.
Currently about 20% of clients use wrap accounts so the fees are worth up
to $ 1 Billion per year. (Half that would be more reasonable)
Using OpenAdaptor (opensource EAI tool for finance) + struts.apache I do not
think it would be too hard. ;)
eBXML should makes it easier to intergrate legacy systems.
2. Linux-based Voice recognition software
Please comment and if anyone wants suggest a way forward I would be grateful.
