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: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
