Current software licensing practices are limiting the acceleration of Grid adoption. Indeed, the rapid emergence of service and virtualization environments requires a rapid evolution in licensing models. SmartLM will provide a generic and flexible licensing virtualization technology for new service-oriented business models across organization boundaries.

It is with clarity that SmartLM is aiming to aid the creation of new industrial opportunities based on the creation of the emerging Service market that uses the service-oriented infrastructure as a means to deliver new software services in great many fields like Finance, Entertainment, Retail, Pharma, etc.

SmartLM will contribute to the technology convergence (virtualization, Grid, SOA, etc) -and large interoperability objective with focused contributions to WS standards and specifications at the Open Grid Forum (OGF).
