Biz2Grid: Moving Business to the Grid - An Application for the Automotive Industry
Biz2Grid aims at migrating industrial business applications to existing grid-middleware systems. Therefore it is necessary to design the organizational structure and an economically reasonable billing & pricing for grid resources in combination with technically implementation in commercial example settings.
At the associate partner BMW Group, two applications are searched which can be exemplarily for commercial scenarios in using grids. Besides the pure technical implementation it should be determined how the existing IT structures in planning, procurement and maintenance can dynamically be affected by market mechanisms while holding up a stable control and business environment.
On the one hand Biz2Grid contributes to commercial use of grid applications. On the other hand project resultant services (e.g. billing & pricing) can be used for the D-Grid network as well as for developing commercial products with proprietary components.
Biz2Grid is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research:
Biz2Grid's project consortium comprises six partners from academia and industry:
