BEinGRID Presents Grid Solutions for Business

03.06.2008
BEinGRID, Business Experiments in GRID, will present today a series of cutting edge solutions, designed around the end user to solve real business challenges through the application of Grid technologies.

The three-day event organised this week from June 3 to 5 in Barcelona, BEinGRID Industry Days, is showcasing the innovative Grid applications that have been applied across a wide range of targeted sectors including finance, supply chain management, media, leisure and engineering, among others. These success stories are complemented with keynotes, live demonstrations and roundtables by internationally recognized experts in Grid who have a clear business approach.

The objective of the BEinGRID Industry Days is to show that Grid technology is by far ready for further uptake. This will be done through the results of the project's pilots, each with specific business processes addressing current customer needs and requirements. The involvement of the end users and service providers in each pilot has lead to genuine and practical solutions that balance each actor's needs.

As an example, the 'Virtual Reality for Architects' application, has been developed to allow architects to provide customers with highly realistic models through which they can navigate in real time. Allowing clients to explore the building is an added value as they can better appreciate the design. Most innovatively, the application has been developed to allow the architect to work remotely - perhaps at the clients' site, and access the service on an on-demand basis - allowing greater financial flexibility.

"Thanks to this application, we now benefit from unused resources in a simple way. This implies reduced processing time. Saving time during the processing phase, actually enabling us to increase and concentrate more on the test phase and reducing post-production related issues. We raise the customer's satisfaction and avoid a delay which, at the end, makes it a really cost-effective solution" confirms Isidore Zielonka, Partner, Art & Build.

In addition to the live demonstrations from the pilots, speakers from Forrester, Amazon.com, AXA, BT, eBay, IBM, Logica, Univa UD and the European Commission, as well as our sponsors Atos Origin, Platform Computing, GridSystems, Axiomatics and Layer 7 Technologies, will be addressing key representatives from SMEs, big industries and research organisations. The BEinGRID Industry Days is thus a unique opportunity to access high-quality content, real-world business scenarios and best practices of Grid adoption.

Project Coordinator Santi Ristol from Atos Origin commented "I am very proud that the first phase of BEinGRID has produced such outstanding results. This event will be a great opportunity for business to appreciate that Grid technologies are a viable and cost effective solution to numerous different business needs. Our many innovative end users, around whom we have developed these solutions, illustrate that Grid is business-ready".

The event, 3-5 June is held in parallel to the OGF23 and attendees have access to both events.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
