-Airavata is a framework which enables a user to build Science Gateways. It is used to compose,
manage, execute and
-monitor distributed applications and workflows on computational resources. These computational
resources can range
-from local resources to computational grids and clouds. Therefore,  various users with different
backgrounds either
-contribute or use Airavata in their  applications. From the Airavata standpoint, three main
users can be identified.
-* End Users
-* Gateway Developers
-* Core Developers
-Now let's focus on each user and how they fit into Airavata's big picture.
+Apache Airavata software framework enables building Science Gateways empowering users to
register and execute applications and compose, manage, execute and
+monitor distributed composite applications and workflows on computational resources. Airavata
abstracts computational resources ranging from local resources to computational grids and
clouds. The following figure illustrate these interactions and highlights different user roles.
+![Airavata Stakeholders](/images/airavata-stakeholders.png "Airavata Stakeholders")
+* Gateay End Users - These users interacts with the portal and desktop user interfaces and
are agnostic to the existance of Airavata.
+* Gateway Developers - The primary target for Airavata Client SDK's is gateway developers.
They program against Airavata API (eased through client sdk's in Java, or PHP or C++ or JS)
and build science centric gateway interfaces.
+* Gateway Adminstrators - These users are responsible for operating a developed gateway and
are primary target for Airavata Adminstrative Tools which faciliate system level monitoring,
security and user management and so forth.
+* Airavata Framework Developers - These group of developers understand the internals of Airavata
and develop, enhance, mainatain the core software.
