This 60-minute video features Keyhole Principle Consultant David Pitt discussing blockchain in the enterprise in December 2019 at the Hyperledger KC User Group sponsored by Keyhole Software. Copyright Keyhole Software, 2019.
Hyperledger Fabric is a general-purpose blockchain framework that allows groups and consortiums to share data securely and with providence. Hyperledger Fabric has Java, Go, and Node.js SDKs that allow client applications to interact with an HLF network.
While you don’t need to be a hardcore programmer, understanding basic programming concepts will be helpful in understanding the subject matter.
In this video, Keyhole Software Principal Consultant David Pitt discusses where he feels blockchain fits into modern business applications and how they can be architected. He introduces Hyperledger Fabric, a permissioned blockchain framework, and shows how it can be used to benefit enterprise due to its tamper-proof and distributed nature. In this presentation, David also introduces an open-source reference blockchain with a real use case applicable to global data.
This talk can be split into two parts – part one being the presentation and open-source reference overview, part two being Q&A with user group attendees to ensure understanding of the presented concepts.
In addition to how the technology can be used within enterprises, Keyhole has also taken an interest in researching how blockchain fits into the health care industry. Our white paper, Tracking Lab Results with Blockchain Technology, explores how it might be useful in virus tracking. Keyhole also hosted a Meetup Group focussing on Blockchain-Based COVID-19 Tracking, and the complete recording of the talk is available.
