EGEE BUSINESS ASSOCIATES
The EGEE Business Associate (EBA) programme is one of the EGEE platforms designed to give even more Industry involvement in EGEE and provides opportunities for companies to engage in technical work in collaboration with EGEE, such as coordinated technical developments, market surveys, exploitation strategies or more general transfer of know-how and services to industry.
As an EBA, companies also get early access to documentation, have the opportunity to publish articles in the EGEE newsletter, sponsor EGEE events and influence the programme of industrial events, as well as participate in the process to define a sustainable infrastructure to follow EGEE. EBAs to work with EGEE to make the distributed computing infrastructure of the Grid more user-friendly, effective and secure in an industrial context.
is the vendor-independent expert on scalable solutions helping customers in speeding up data processing, removing application bottlenecks and building complete scalable systems. The company introduces modern concepts of Grid, virtualization, service-oriented architecture (SOA) and application-driven portals. GridwiseTech offers management consulting as well as comprehensive technical assistance in integration of multi-vendor components. The company is present in Europe, Asia and the US, serving a wide variety of clients ranging from Fortune Global 500 companies to small and medium enterprises, to research and government agencies.

One of GridwiseTech's successes is integrating internal job management environment of Philips Research with external, on-demand resources managed by the EGEE Grid. The job execution layer comes together with a user-friendly, application-oriented portal, and is secured by grid's virtual organization. This solution, combined with LCG/gLite can easily serve other industrial customers, increasing their current compute capabilities by an order of magnitude, without any extra hardware expenses and with no grid knowledge required from end-users.
works with companies in the mechanical, energy, biotech, aerospace, electronics, and telecom fields, as well as with research and education organisations to solve problems related to computing resource optimization and rationalization. For more information about NICE and NICE products please go to
NICE Italy will develop its GENIUS Grid Portal and EnginFrame FrameWork, to make them compatible with the EGEE middleware gLite. “NICE has always been a strong supporter of the EGEE project right from the first phase,” says Beppe Ugolotti, CEO of NICE, Italy. “As part of this collaboration and cooperation effort we are proud to become one of the first participants in the Business Associate programme, which gives us a valuable channel to make significant technical contributions and leverage off the considerable expertise built up in Grid computing within the EGEE project. On the other hand, as one of the leaders in the commercial Grid sector, NICE has much experience and knowledge to offer to the EGEE project, especially as it aims to attract more industrial and business users.”
