Conference Overview & Unblocking The Blocks

Read More

“We don’t want Block chain, we want Block chain inspired..”
The abstract of this talk it to dispel the myths about Block Chain technology. With these kinds of high expectations comes intense public interest and speculation, leading to the generation of a number of myths and misconceptions around the application of blockchain technology. The speaker will be discussing seven key myths in his presentation.

  • Blockchain myth 1: “The blockchain” exists
  • Blockchain myth 2: Blockchain is infinitely scalable
  • Blockchain myth 3: Blockchain usage eliminates fraud
  • Blockchain myth 4: Blockchain usage is free
  • Blockchain myth 5: Blockchain will revolutionise banking
  • Blockchain myth 6: Blockchain has no business applications
  • Blockchain myth 7: Blockchain is a “disruptive technology”

  • Blockchain technology has the potential to greatly change the way you do business and benefit your organisation, but without the correct understanding of how blockchain transactions and networks function you won’t be able to truly harness the power of blockchain technology.

    Intranet of Value – Blockchain in Enterprises

    Read More

    Beyond the hype and din in the Blockchain world there has been a restrained evolution underway. The adoption of the technology in the formal structured world of enterprises is maturing slow but steady. This presentation talks about the introduction of Blockchain in Volvo to address critical business cases, and in the process set in motion the spread of the “Intranet of Value”, with a potential to encompass various facets of the organisation.

    The strategy has been to “Wrap and Reuse” instead of “Rip and Replace” to establish the feasibility of using the Blockchain technology, and getting the Business buy-in to use it for addressing larger problems. In addition, the aim has been to nurture the Blockchain competency in the organization in line with the long-term vision and way of working.

    Volvo has been one of the front-runners in adapting disruptive technologies to enhance business value and user experience.

    How Blockchain can improve Data Security

    Read More

    Blockchain can be best defined as - A decentralized, immutable distributed electronic ledger built on a trust model. Employing cryptography, transactions are recorded chronologically and publicly, each one time-stamped and linked to the previous one. Most importantly, these digital blocks can only be updated through the consensus of all participants, with modification, data interception and deletion near impossible.

    The 2017 World Economic Forum report predicted that by 2025, 10% of global GDP will be stored on blockchains or blockchain-related technology. Touted as a major technology disruption for numerous industries, it can also be transformative in the realm of cyber security. Confidentiality, integrity and availability, also known as the CIA triad, is a model designed to guide policies for information security and blockchain can play across the triad, hence offering improved resilience, auditing and transparency.

    During the session, we will learn about Blockchain security architecture, applications & use cases in data security, blockchain in IoT security, limitations & vulnerabilities

    Developing Blockchain Applications and Technologies

    Supply chains are complex, involving multiple players across geographies. Often they span national boundaries. Pilferage, fraud, and malpractices are common. Consequently, members of the supply chain invest immensely in legal due diligence, and indemnification. These come at a cost.

    Losses in a supply chain can be as high as 50% or more. While pilferage, fraud, and malpractices account for most of the losses, significant losses also happen due to delays while negotiating contracts, and in legal reviews. Inherent lack of trust among the parties involved necessitates the legal due diligence despite its high cost, and cycle-time. Big businesses are often conducted in partnership of long trusted partners. This inhibits competition, and fair play.

    Increasingly, consumers (customers in general) are demanding to know more about the product they are buying (Is it genuine? Where did it come from? What standards does this comply to?...), and they want authentic answers that they can trust.

    Blockchains, as they automate trust, address all the above expectations in a scalable (a retail chain may have a few million items in its inventory) items in its inventory), and cost-effective manner. The talk discusses in detail, how, and why Blockchain is disrupting the Supply chain for the better.

    Supply Chain and Blockchain - Demo

    Read More

    International Shipping and specifically Ocean Shipping Trade currently is governed by Old UN conventions and involves many parties like Sellers, Buyers, Banks, Freight Forwarders, Brokers, Agents, Carriers etc exchanging a variety of information like Commercial Invoices, Bills of Lading, Purchase Orders, Export/Import Customs Declaration etc via Paper based documents and storing information in disparate IT systems. Identifying the One Single Version of Truth and reconciling information amongst the various IT systems becomes a problem. Add to this the creation and manual exchange of documents adds time delays and cost escalations and creates inefficiencies. Secure ways of releasing Cargo is also a problem. Given these problems, Blockchain can help all these Partners to get consistent access to information, store digitally signed immutable versions of the documents, transfer document ownerships and securely release Cargo to the rightful parties. In this session we shall talk about how the SAP Digital Supply Chain group has used Blockchain Technologies and Services to solve some of the problems prevalent in the Supply Chain/Logistics industry.

    Using Blockchain for Media Traceability

    Read More

    With the faster adoption of digital technologies, web, social media and mobiles it is difficult to trace the IPs. Original owner of the IP, has no control over his/her digital contents once it’s being leaked. This is especially true in case of Media contents like photos and videos. Once leaked, these contents can never be retrieved and one's control over the IP is lost forever. Sometimes, these images and videos are quite personal which goes viral and distorts one's career and even social status.

    Even Cybercrime teams are unable to trace each and every instance of such contents who created it, who copied it, who passed it to others and who morphed it.

    Therefore, Media traceability through Blockchain could help to be a boon in this area. This could also be an extension over JPEG and MPEG formats and would require new codecs to be developed. Original Author will have the right to delete all the instances of such media, trace forward and backward. This will also help cyber crime teams to respond to the reported crime in a shorter span of time.

    Role of Blockchain in Financial Inclusion

    Read More

    Financial inclusion is an important step to alleviate poverty. For an un or underbanked person, getting access to wide variety of financial products and services, could potentially change lives. Blockchain Technology increases transparency and trust between two parties, whether it’s individuals or organisations which intern helps in reducing the operational costs and increases efficiency. By its decentralized nature, it can assist several microfinancing bodies without the need for mediators or central authorities. Furthermore, smart contracts make repaying these loans easier by creating a bond based on the terms and conditions specified for repayment.
