Press release from: GridwiseTech

Krakow, 22th May, 2007 – At the recent OGF/EGEE User Forum conference in Manchester, Pawel Plaszczak, President of GridwiseTech explained strategies for scaling processing capabilities to cut costs, including hooking up to external resources. The session “How Can Business and Industry Profit from Using the EGEE Grid” took place on the fourth day of Europe’s largest Grid event. The conference gathered more than 900 end-users, Grid experts and business representatives.

Pawel Plaszczak demonstrated the benefits of integrating an internal job management environment with external, on-demand resources. The presentation was based on a real case study where a global manufacturer of electronics was connected to the EGEE Grid Infrastructure. Apart from their independent consulting services, GridwiseTech also provided a software solution that enabled delegating jobs from corporate resources to the grid middleware of EGEE.

"We've been working with GridwiseTech for some time and were very happy to have them at our User Forum because engaging with business is a high priority for us” – said Erwin Laure, EGEE Technical Director. “GridwiseTech help bridge the gap between academic Grids and the commercial sector by speaking a language business can understand, and have already got major organizations interested in the work of EGEE."

The presentation “How Can Business and Industry Profit from Using the EGEE Grid” can be downloaded from www.gridwisetech.com.

Experts from GridwiseTech will be also present at the forthcoming International Supercomputing Conference, held on 26 – 29 of June in Dresden, Germany.
