“’Blockchain has great potential uses in shared business processes like tracking products in a supply chain, said Mark Rentmeester, the director of application development services at Concurrency Inc., a Brookfield company that consults on digital transformation at enterprises.
“Because multiple parties have the same copy of the same data, it enforces that the data cannot be overwritten, deleted or changed,” Rentmeester said. “If there’s an error or something that needs to be corrected, it shows as part of the shared ledger.”
The “Blockchain in a Day” event gives participants an unusual opportunity to dive into business applications of Blockchain with both Rentmeester and representatives from Microsoft’s own Blockchain team.
The events will explore how Blockchain—a data structure that’s used to create a digital transaction ledger that, instead of resting with a single provider, is shared among a distributed network of computers—can result in a more open, transparent, and verifiable system that will fundamentally change the way we think about exchanging value and assets, enforcing contracts, and sharing data.
The “Blockchain in a Day” events will cover:
- A quick evolution of using Blockchain for Bitcoin to using it for today’s enterprise challenges
- Why would you need a Blockchain?
- What is Microsoft doing to make Blockchain better?
- What are some of the things Microsoft will be doing in the future?
- Components of a Blockchain Enterprise Application
- Overview of Blockchain Tools and Resources in the Azure Marketplace
- Demo of how to easily configure and deploy a Blockchain PoC complete with end to end business flows
