InforSense is a world leader in the application of open discovery workflow systems to application integration and business process planning in information-rich organisations. Its role in the consortium is to provide the necessary grid infrastructure for the application of workflow management tools throughout the application areas. InforSense’s workflow technology was the winner of the IEEE high-performance computing challenge in 1998, 1999 and 2002, and thus the company is ideally qualified to defining workflow in the SIMDAT grid environment. An important requirement of SIMDAT to workflow is that it must be open in the sense that new applications and data formats/representations can be easily integrated into the system. This openness is crucial to deal with the heterogeneity of applications in different application field and InforSense DPML workflow language is ideal for this purpose.
Inforsense will extend its grid workflow systems with the following capabilities:
Initial work will focus on applications in the Pharmaceutical cluster before being extended to applications in the other clusters.
