Benefits to Researchers

Previous | Next

As mentioned previously, one of the major benefits to researchers demonstrated by the SAMD approach to Grid technology is the reduction in the amount of time required to do the research. This is due to bringing the various resources together (as far as the user is concerned), within a custom-designed interface, and simplifying the authentication procedures. The following Units will explain how this was done in the SAMD project.

There are many good reasons for social scientists to use Grid technology, especially if they have research interests that involve access to large data sets and intensive computing facilities:
