DIGIBIZ 2009 is the key international conference where industry and academia focus on innovative e-business and e-commerce technologies for the Future Internet. BEinGRID, as the project driving the implementation and deployment of Grid solutions in industry, could not miss this event. One of the solutions highlighted at DIGIBIZ is GRIA: the Grid middleware used in many of BEinGRID's most successful pilot projects.
GRIA and BEinGRID
In BEinGRID, GRIA is the foundation middleware used in five business experiments covering the retail and logistics, advanced manufacturing, financial and tourism sectors. GRIA has been integral in solving the B2B integration and management issues in this broad range of sectors, demonstrating its readiness for business use.
GRIA in TravelCRM for Tourism
To face the competition, small independent travel agencies must offer high-value personalized travel services for their customers at competitive prices. For that, they must analyze their customer data through Business Intelligence processing. The BEinGRID TravelCRM pilot project uses a software as a service model to pool data from groups of travel agencies in order to generate enough information for useful Business Intelligence analysis. The travel agencies in turn receive reports to improve their sales and marketing. GRIA provides the technology to link the distributed databases and portals in a secure and managed fashion, using service level agreements to monitor and manage the system.
According to Santiago Piña from the Viajes Sta Ponsa travel agency, "With TravelCRM, we foresee a tool that will help us manage the data from our clients and providers, converting it into a valuable knowledge bank for us. This tool will definitely help our travel group improve our modus operandi for our members' benefit, linking knowledge of our data. In this case, 1+1 is more than 2."
The TravelCRM pilot is demonstrated at the DIGIBIZ conference.
GRIA in AMONG for FinanceMore than $1 trillion of dirty money is laundered worldwide each year. To hide the trail of money laundering, criminals split money between many financial institutions. Current anti-money laundering (AML) products are inefficient as they operate in isolated banking environments and provide no collaboration between banks. However, recent changes in EU law permit a limited amount of information exchange. The AMONG Business Experiment from BEinGRID provides the first solution in which banks can cooperate with each other, exchanging some customer information to improve their customer risk assessments. In AMONG, GRIA has been integrated with existing AML software and provides a secure channel managed using service level agreements to exchange this highly sensitive data.
"AMONG takes the next step in providing a holistic viewpoint of money-laundering activity, and most surprisingly at low cost, securely and regardless of the AML application installed in the bank" says Piraeus Group Chief Compliance Officer.

If you are interested in learning more about the GRIA middleware used in the BEinGRID Business Experiments, you can view the BEinGRID demonstrator 'Grid Computer Aided Engineering' (GridCAE) on www.beingrid.eu. It describes how ICON, a CAE consultancy company, enhanced and extended its client offering by using GRIA to access remote compute resources. More information is also available on www.gridipedia.eu
About BEinGRIDType of project: Integrated Project
GRIA makes use of business models, processes and semantics to allow resource owners and users to discover each other and negotiate terms for access to high-value resources. By focusing on business processes and the associated semantics, GRIA enables users to provision for their computational needs more cost effectively, and develop new business models for some of their services.

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
