How Does Gridipedia Help You Applying Grid Technologies to Business?

21.01.2009
Interested in applying Grid technologies to business? Then it’s well worth bookmarking www.gridipedia.eu. Gridipedia provides you with a repository of Grid software components and solutions designed to meet common business requirements.

In addition it is also a useful source of information on design patterns for solutions to common Grid problems, proven use cases on companies that are applying Grid solutions in industry and the legal issues that relate to Grid computing.

What is Gridipedia?

Gridipedia is a knowledge and toolset repository which has been developed consisting of Grid service components and best practices to support European businesses with the uptake of Grid technologies.

The Gridipedia website (www.gridipedia.eu) is currently seeing large growth and is populated with real Grid application from the BEinGRID project, focused on specific business processes and addressing current customer needs and requirements. It is now seen as public source of information on application of Grid technologies in business context.

According to Santi Ristol, Services Area Manager at Atos Origin, “Gridipedia is the European Grid meeting point of the future – a repository for business case studies and best practice guides where Grid players can find solutions and partners. This is why Gridipedia is for all your Grid needs.”

Gridipedia differs from other Grid repositories

Gridipedia differs from other Grid repositories as it currently holds a wealth of business-oriented information based on the insights of two specialist teams – one technical, one business – that have been analysing successful Grid implementations in real business scenarios.

These teams demonstrate the added value of Gridipedia, all content must pass stringent tests for submission, ensuring that it really delivers on its promises. By ensuring that all hosted material has business relevance and can be traced to a real use scenario we avoid the “technology-push” problem of many repositories. As a business-pull repository we also seek out and solicit key contributions from third parties.

Gridipedia and your business

We expect that both well-covered technical and business aspects will directly encourage the adoption of Grid technologies by showing economic and market benefits and the associated technical solutions for adopters in actual successful cases.

In addition to this, Gridipedia is an open and interactive site which aims at hosting Grid-related business-oriented results of other projects and from private organisations. The final result is an extensive library of case studies, information and code for software solutions to real-life problems.

Through all this Gridipedia is targeting key decision makers in both business and technical roles who will oversee the implementation of Grid in their businesses or who are looking to further develop their existing Grid capabilities. Potential end users will also be attracted by the demonstrated benefits that Grid technology can bring to their work such as reduced time to market, new service offerings, reduced costs, improved quality and greater flexibility.

In the long term, Gridipedia is seen as a market place for Grid technologies, where vendors of Grid solutions can meet buyers from the commercial sector; where consultants, suppliers and programmers can exhibit and trade their offerings and where potential buyers of all levels can find the information and products they require.

Im Focus: Powerful IT security for the car of the future – research alliance develops new approaches

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
