I thought you knew...? :-) One thing that we're actively working on in our open-source project is a compact price-triggering mechanism for SMEs for XML. That is, small companies can receive a pricelist from suppliers, and it automatically triggers new pricelists to be recalculated and sent out to customers based on some configuration settings. To a degree, it's not world first or anything like that. Because most accounting systems accept price changes and eventually a new pricelist gets sent out to customers. But it usually has to be driven manually. But the theory/concept of this I believe is new. And deeply derived in xml/markup mysticism. That is, that a small business computer can automatically react, recalculate all prices, and redistribute (read no work) when a supplier price changes. Our project is open source, and has developers spread across the world. To be big (in a Sales sense), you really need v/c money which we don't have and aren't actively chasing. So we aren't going to be way big in 2007... But one thing is for sure out there in the business world, it's that there is no shortage of data these days. Convert just a chunk of it into xml and you suddenly have masses... more than anyone ever imagined could be. Because these days, most (small) businesses throw away data (CDs + Spreadsheets) because they can't use it all.... And from the masses of data that nobody else is able to process.. because it is just thrown away... I believe comes xml opportunities... It's fairly simple stuff, but because the people who know the xml theory.. should sortof understand how the mechanics of what I am talking is working... it could be something new to try in 2007...
