GUISET is an acronymn for Grid-based Utility Infrastructure for SMME-enabled Technology. The central goal of the GUISET project is to provide an e-Infrastructure for enabling on-demand e-commerce for technologically constrained Small and Medium Enterprises in South Africa.
The GUISET is based on the emerging trend towards Software-as-a-service and utility computing models where applications and computational capabilities are made accessible as on-demand services and user only pay-per-use.
The SME Ecommerce on Demand (SECOND) is a follow up project to GUISET with the aim of delivering cutting edge prototype services for on-demand e-services. The project is in initial phase and runs from 2009-2011.
