Through the introduction of the Unigrids Atomic Services the development of Grid applications is independent of the underlying Grid infrastructure. While formerly an application had to be adapted for each Grid system the developer now builds only one module for the Unigrids Atomic Services that allows the exploitation of all available Grid systems. The reduced development work protects the effort and investment in the development of Grid applications. On the other hand the access to different Grid systems enables users to choose the most suitable infrastructure for their applications and providers can assign jobs to systems based on economical decisions, thus boosting the productivity of the users as well as the utilisation of the infrastructure.
