Since its establishment, one of the distinctive signs of maat Group has been its important commitment to R&D&I aimed at the development of new generation technological infrastructures through its scientific teams of researchers, linked to some of the main research centers, both nationally and internationally, highlighting CERN in Geneva and CIEMAT in Spain, among others.
maat Group has participated and leaded a huge number of European Consortia, achieving resounding success from the development of Projects based on the Cloud Computing paradigm, a revolutionary model in the Industry, able to offering services over the Internet, allowing for the reduction of costs, risks and complexities, improving service quality and offering the flexibility necessary to respond to continuous changes in workloads.
Along these lines, it´s important to identify the different initiatives undertaken in the R&D&I World and in particular review the results obtained and prospections -see Table below-, which occurred between the years 2005 and 2013, having executed 18 projects during 53 annuities in that period, especially notable due to the relevance of the decisions. strategies assumed opportunely by maat Group
The experiences and knowledge collected in the R&D&i World have turned out to be decisive in developing the maat Tech Platform, a comprehensive, end-to-end, flexible, scalable, multi-channel and interoperable Cloud Computing expression based on IT Standards Industry.
During this period, four very defined layers of action have been identified and developed. The three basic layers of the Cloud Computing Model (IaaS, PaaS and SaaS), adding a fourth integrative layer of World 2.0, very oriented to the offer of value services to groups, federations or end users through the deployment, management and exploitation of Virtual Communities, which supported by the enormous benefits that Cloud Computing brings, will transform into authentic Value Networks
The R&D&I investment made by maat Group taking into consideration all the projects undertaken during that period (2005-2013), has been more than € 25,000,000. Additionally, it should be noted that the IPR achieved (total assets developed by the different Consortiums) has reached the figure of € 99,560,000
