Beingrid, Business Experiments in GRID, is the European Union's largest integrated project funded by the Information Society Technologies (IST) research, part of the European Union's sixth research Framework Programme (FP6). Grid technology is in a critical transition as it moves from research and academic use to wider adoption by business and enterprise. The use of Grid technology brings many benefits such as the greater utilisation of IT resources and increased business flexibility with consequent reductions in overall cost for end users, including security enhancements. Grid enables large, complex systems to be utilised effectively, promoting the sharing of networked resources and supporting new business processes across distributed administrative domains.
