IT Innovation’s strategy for standardisation is to adopt key Web Service and Grid interoperability specifications that are acceptable to industry and commerce. The strategy is documented in detail within the deliverable D2.2.2 “Report on Grid infrastructure interoperability challenges”, which outlines the core Web Service standards and specifications used within the SIMDAT project.

IT Innovation will continue to analysis the standards space and factor findings into the Grid infrastructure roadmap. The analysis will include ongoing work for Web Service standards (Resources, Events and Management) and Grid standards for job submission (HPC Profile) and analysis services. IT Innovation will attend interoperability events such as Grid Interoperability Now (GIN) at OGF and contribute SIMDAT’s perspective on standardisation within industry.
