-All software ​filed in the AppDB is ready to be used on the [[http://​www.egi.eu|European Grid Infrastructure]]. Reusing software products from the AppDB means that scientists and software developers may find a solution that can directly be used on the European Grid Infrastructures ​without reinventing the wheel. This way, scientists can spend less time developing ​and/​or ​porting software to Distributed Computing Infrastrures (DCIs), and software developers can create scientific code more easilyThusAppDB aims to avoid duplication of effort across the DCI communities,​ and aims to inspire scientists less familiar with DCI programming.+Reusing ​software ​products, registered ​in the AppDB, means that scientists and developers may find a solution that can be directly utilized ​on the [[http://​www.egi.eu|European Grid & Cloud Infrastructures]] without reinventing the wheel.

 +The EGI Applications Database **is open to every scientist**,​ interested on publishing and therefore sharing, his/her software solution. The only prerequisite,​ is to be owner of a valid [[main:​faq:​how_to_get_access_to_the_appdb|account]]. After that, you will be able to take advantage of the authenticated write-enabled features of the AppDB service and more specific to register your [[main:​faq:​how_to_register_a_software|software]] product and/or [[main:​faq:​how_to_register_a_virtual_appliance|virtual appliance]].
