Making Blockchain Enterprise Ready: Announcing new Blockchain Services and SAP HANA Partnership


Some technologies are more exciting than others because they have the potential to power both your personal and your work life. One of those technologies that has made a huge splash and become an easily deciphered industry buzzword is blockchain. If you are investing in cryptocurrencies or exploring business use cases as part of your day to day work, then you know what we are talking about.     

For enterprises, blockchain brings better efficiency, lowers costs, and opens new business opportunities establishing trust between parties. Just like any other emerging technology, important roadblocks still need to be addressed for blockchain such as governance, compliance, data privacy, scalability, operations, security, platform functionality, and people and organizational readiness.Blockchain blog June 20183.JPG

 Investments From Enterprise Tech Leaders

 At 2018 SAPPHIRE NOW this week, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), joined the global blockchain consortium that SAP launched as a founding member. Together, HPE and SAP will co-innovate and work on blockchain use cases, push for industry standards and lead the conversations on important topics like governance for data sharing and approaches for specific industries.

The solutions will address the key problems faced by enterprise customers such as validating authenticity of semiconductor chip, transparency of asset records in the value chain or improving visibility in global trade.
