PROVENANCE: Enabling and supporting provenance in grids for complex problems

Project ID: 511085
Funded under: FP6-IST


Businesses operate in a regulated environment that is intended to prevent malpractice and protect the consumer. Regimes of corporate governance define the control processes that businesses must follow in order to meet their statutory obligations. Provenance provides a framework to let business show that these processes have been complied with. Current mechanisms for regulatory compliance adopted by businesses involve closed, proprietary solutions that are not transparent and interoperable between different companies, business sectors or technologies. By developing an open, standardised architecture, the Provenance project provides businesses with the flexibility to develop open and interoperable solutions to meet their regulatory obligations.
