Open Source Office
IT is an area with large employment opportunities but Pakistan has not been able to capitalize on that. Compared to India that creates 300,000 IT staff each year we hardly create 5000. The opportunity is to train large IT group each year and cater to the international, regional and local marketplace..
Open source software is big business nowadays. The idea is to take an existing product and modify it to create a flavor of our own that sells in the international market and then provide support for that open source product. It can absorb thousands of IT professional each year. The idea is to create a top notch development & training program online and train a large group every 12 months. The groups can be engaged in projects that create business value and generate money on their own..
Train 1000 from all walks of life even without formal IT training. All the ones with BA, BSC even FA FSC and diplomas should be trained to serve in various areas.
The open source product generates support revenue by remote support that could be easily done from Pakistan..
