Management of eScience computations and resulting data in distributed computing environments is complicated and often introduces considerable overhead. In this work we address a lack of integration tools that provide the abstraction levels, performance, and usability required to facilitate migration of eScience applications to distributed computing environments, In particular, we explore an approach to raising abstraction levels based on separation of computation design computation management and present StratUm, a computation enactment tool for distributed computing environments. Results are illustrated in a case study of integration of a software from the systems biology community with a grid computation management system.
