Recommendations to improve the Applications Database and Operations Portal services to better serve scientific communities
- Public document
- In April 2012 EGI.eu opened an Application Expert secondment position for the NGIs. In May 2012 Jelena Tamuliené from the Lithuanian NGI has been selected for the position and she worked in the EGI.eu User Community Support Team between July-September. Jelenas scientific background is in Computational Chemistry and one of her first tasks in the secondment position was to review the profiles of applications and tools that the NGIs offer in the EGI Applications Database (AppDB) for Computational Chemistry and Material Sciences communities and to make suggestions on improving these application profiles, as well as the AppDB service itself for such communities. This document reports about the feedback that Jelena provided on the AppDB service to the EGI.eu User Community Support Team and describes recommendations by the team for the further implementation of the AppDB and Operation Portal services as a response to the feedback. Although Jelenas review was made from the Computational Chemistry and Material Sciences perspective, her remarks could be made by the representative of any other scientific disciplines and therefore the suggestions of this document can help EGI improve the attractiveness of AppDB for researchers of other fields.
