Abstract: Today is the era of parallel and distributed computing models. Recent developments in DSM, Grids and DSM based Grids focus on high end computations of parallelized applications. We have built SMIG (Shared Memory Integrated with Grid) which amalgamates DSM and Grid computing paradigms as a part of our doctoral work. Literature citations have indicated a lacuna in how technological models are communicated to potential users to increase usage. Based on this lacuna we have identified the potential users and prepared a communication framework to disseminate SMIG information in order increase its usage. Hence in this paper we have compared various communication techniques used for disseminating DSM, Grid and DSM based Grid models as surveyed from literature. We have further designed and implemented a communication framework to percolate SMIG information to users. In the communication framework we have plugged in various tools for information dissemination and feedback (apart from those found in the survey) for promoting usage of technology among volunteers and application developers. These are included in the communication framework, namely arranging overview sessions, passing written documentation like presentations, installation handbook, FAQs, and also providing an opportunity to use SMIG model. The detailed responses received from the users after implementing the communication framework are encouraging and indicates that such a communication framework can be used for disseminating other technology developments to potential users. This will prove useful in today’s dynamic world where technological developments are happening on a day to day basis.
