First Data Investigation on the Grid - FirstDIG



The project is a collaboration between First plc and the National e-Science Centre (represented by EPCC). It aims to deploy an early implementation of OGSA Data Access and Integration services within the First South Yorkshire bus operational environment. The project has two central goals. Firstly, it will demonstrate the deployment of OGSA-DAI services in a commercial environment and learn from this process. Secondly, it will answer specific business questions posed by First plc through a short data mining analysis using the OGSA-DAI service-enabled data sources and hence improve the company's business process understanding.
