he fourth release of the IDGF Roadmap has been published in December 2013. It is available in two parts: The management part describes the whole context of Desktop Grid Computing; it tells you if Desktop Grid computing is something for your organisation. The technical part then focuses on how to install a desktop grid, or how to make use of existing desktop grids. The Management part is targeted at everyone who would like to understand the benefits of desktop computing. This version showcases examples of successful crowd computing projects from different countries and presents a survey that revealed the willingness of citizens to donate unused computer power in order to advance scientific research. Reading the further chapters, it will be clear how desktop grids relate to other e-Infrastructures in the Europe and worldwide, and how the International Desktop Grid Federation (IDGF) is built up as an organisation. The reader will understand through best practices and interesting case studies the ways desktop grids can give a helping hand not only to science but also to industry. Green IT aspects of the technology are covered in this version as well, leaving no doubt about the energy efficiency of desktop grids.
