A selection of common capabilities validated in real-life business trials by the BEinGRID consortium

by Theo Dimitrakos, Josep Martrat, Stefan Wesner

Service-Oriented Infrastructures including Grid and Cloud Computing are technologies in a critical transition to wider adoption by business. Their use may enable enterprises to achieve optimal IT utilization, including sharing resources and services across enterprises and on-demand utilization of those made available by business partners over the network. This book is an essential reference for researchers and practitioners in service-oriented IT. It analyses a selection of common capabilities (services capturing reusable functionality of IT solutions) that have been applied to tackle challenging business problems and were validated by the BEinGRID consortium in real-life business trials covering most European market sectors.
