Webinar Overview

Author: Oliver Bussman
Release Date: January 3, 2018

Abstract:

This research anticipates blockchain’s impact on enterprise IT architecture and the role of the chief information officer, sometimes called the chief technology officer or chief digital officer. It examines “low-hanging fruit, that is, use cases where processes are ripe for change, volumes are predictably low, and the potential rewards are large. It also explores the coming convergence of emerging technologies–artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, and Internet of Things–and how those will catalyze distributed business models based on decentralized structures and disintermediated transactions. Finally, it provides a digital competency framework for organizations

Cosmos and Polkadot for the Enterprise

This project explores one of the most critical implementation challenges of blockchain technologies: interoperability. Enterprise uses are reluctant to tokenize their assets or invest seriously in decentralized finance and digital asset management capabilities without assurances that they will be able to move these assets across blockchain platforms. What if chosen platforms fail? What if better platforms emerge? Some of the best minds in the space are addressing these issues head on with a range of innovative solutions. This project features two of them: Cosmos and Polkadot. It looks at their origins and ethos, architecture and core technology components (including the role of their native tokens ATOM and DOT), consensus and governance, and the applications already using them. Finally, the author reviews what enterprise decision-makers need to know as they weigh their options.
