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

Filecoin and the Future of Decentralized Cloud Storage

Filecoin is a decentralized protocol that anyone can download to rent out spare storage space on their computer. An alternative to traditional cloud storage, the Filecoin blockchain-based storage solution leverages a peer-to-peer architecture, creating massively scalable storage capacity without building massive new infrastructure. Instead of entrusting one company to store and protect valuable digital assets and documents in a single jurisdiction, customers can split up and store their assets on different computers around the world. The low barriers to entry and the economic rewards for miners make for ample supply of storage, keeping fees quite attractive; and the dispersion of files makes them difficult to hack, seize, or take down. This research walks executives through enterprise use cases and the benefits of participating in decentralized storage networks.
