Technology plays a key role within EGS-CC. The concepts and functionality of the EGS-CC require the application of a wide range of technologies. There are user requirements to support an advanced component based approach, provision of services, extension mechanisms, etc. which are some of the areas linked to the field of software technology.
The technology selection is being carried out through dedicated projects and studies, based on a set of agreed principles:
A number of different technology domains have been considered as part of the EGS-CC technology assessment:
The result of the technology selection is the technology suite, built as overall best choice according to the EGS-CC objectives, including all required technology domains. The following diagram provides a simplified overview of the proposed technology suite.
