Economical view at grid technology.

Gridtoday has interviewed Robert Cohen an economist, Economic Strategy Institute fellow and Cohen Communications Group president to discusses some of his studies looking at how Grid computing, SOA and Web services have transformed the industrial landscape. In particular, Cohen discusses how grids have affected the automotive sector, a topic on which he presented at EGEE'06.
Cohen said during the interview, "I think many industries are beginning to use grids and SOAs to generate their core profits. As this becomes more evident, business processes could change in a wider range of industries beyond autos, aerospace, semiconductors and finance where they have been most noticeable. This could result in dramatic improvements in productivity as well as firms using the global economy as their base for design and product development."
