Informing Business/Regional Policy: Grid Fusion of Global Data and Local Knowledge


The vision for this research is to improve the effectiveness of decision-making about business policy and local government policy. It will achieve this through exploiting the unique strengths of the Grid infrastructure to establish secure communications between data-holders with market knowledge and scientists experienced in the application of analytical techniques that require a high-performance computing infrastructure. The objectives of the pilot will be to: (i) migrate the process of analysing corporate data from a secure HPC environment, to a secure Grid environment; (ii) deliver a Grid-enabled data-mining toolset; (iii) establish a grid portal in the Asia-Pacific region; (iv) demonstrate model building on real corporate data from global companies through synchronous and asynchronous interaction across the Grid; (v) assess the potential for fusing private and public data models at different levels of aggregation.
