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: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.

Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
