On June 26th and 27th 2017, the NEW R&D collaborators allocated to the InteGrid project, among other partners of the consortium, met at SAP Portugal facilities, in Lisbon, to participate in a workshop about SAP Cloud, in which will be developed the Grid-Market Hub – central platform with the goal of supporting the provision of services and enabling the appearance of new business models, in a neutral and standardised way, between distribution system operators and other stakeholders (e.g.: retailers) . This is one of the core concepts of InteGrid.
The following topics were addressed throughout the event:
- SAP Cloud Platform Overview;
- Infrastructure & SaaS (Software as a Service) Extensions;
- Analytics & Business Services;
- Collaboration & Data and Storage;
- Internet of Things & Security;
- Runtime and Containers;
- User Experience.
The knowledge acquired to the NEW R&D, subsequent to the participation in this workshop, will be significantly useful not only within the InteGrid scope, but also for further activities that require cloud computation expertise.
