This question already has an answer here:
I am planning to make an application to digitize and organize documents that a company, or forum, etc may have.
The first thing that came to my mind was:
- How should I look for possible competitors that already have their product on the market?
To see what I am against, so I believe this question would be rather flamed if posted on the SO.
Other things I was thinking of:
Once I know about the other companies doing this same application I am planning, what should I consider before taking the step to do it or look for something else?
Is there a public or a good resource where I should look first about the type of application I am planning to create?
Would SO be a good place for this sort of questions or where should I go with those question I have?
Just wanted to add here since I stated on the comment answer below, that what concerns me the most is the attitude of the community whenever a post that may not suit it or is subjective or don't suit it at all, people go all out to bang it with negative votes without leaving a comment or giving the moderators a chance to move it, hence why I asked here first.
PS: hope I didn't do anything wrong by posting this here as well. If I'm missing a tag please let me know to added to it, I wasn't sure of what other tags I should use here.
