Blockchain - more than coin

By Jason Remillard

29 January, 2018

I read an interesting article today about some of the activities occurring at Davos this week. Robert Shiller made some interesting comments (link) – however mostly centered around bitcoin itself. For sure – it has been a bumpy ride – and outside of hype and other reasons for the sudden interest – at its core we are talking about validations of blockchain and its ability to ‘free’ information – whilst protecting it and giving owners control.

Looks like there were over a dozen specific sessions on blockchain itself – which I find quite interesting considering this topic made agendas a few years back anywhere. More interesting to me from a product and compliance side was the joint announcement between Microsoft, Accenture and Hyperledger for the ID2020 Alliance (link).

“Much more to come from this group – and I expect ‘competing’ groups to crop up with different value propositions, etc…”

More interesting to us, is the ‘blockchain’ conversation is starting to mature and get ‘big enough’ – that is – having some large and lofty goals and encompassing truly needed user communities with capabilities that help on a very large scale (call it – planet-wide). In this example, (which I didn’t know), over 1.1 billion people can not prove their identity – which as we know affects everything from immigration, work, safety, healthcare and more.

Significant, game changing, mature. It will be interesting!

Security – even as demands evolve, DataExpress meets the challenges that arise!

Security affects all vendors in many ways and it is perhaps the most talked about priority amongst the biggest enterprises on the planet. It’s good to know how serious these enterprises are treating security in its many guises – privacy, protection, compliance, integrity, etc. – and that the exchanges between enterprises and vendors represent an never-ending loop of requirements creation and product development. However, there are times when the need to keep secret how a vendor’s product has been deployed and put to use not only hides specifics from that vendor but also can marginalize the effectiveness of requirements exchanges where information provided may not fully qualify the opportunity.
