User Group Meeting - Blockchain in Azure

September 19, 2018 | 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM |
1333 Butterfield Rd, Suite 504
Downers Grove, IL 60515

Join us for the user group meeting to understand what are the good use cases for the blockchain ledger implementation, and get a flavor of use cases you should avoid implementing using the blockchain technologies.

In this session, we will demonstrate implementing simple blockchain smart contract and workflow using Azure Blockchain workbench on the Azure Platform.

Blockchain, originally devised for cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum has garnered a lot of attention and traction in the recent few years. Blockchain is the underlying transparent and verifiable system which is changing the way people are exchanging assets, enforcing contracts and sharing the data. The technology is a shared, secure ledger of transactions distributed on a network of computers. This approach allows the data to be shared across business processes by reducing the risk of fraud, eliminating waste and generating new revenue streams.
Blockchain on Azure simplifies the development time by automating the infrastructure setup, allowing the developers to focus on the application logic and the business owners to define and validate the use cases. Azure Blockchain allows to get up and running quickly by using tools and resources in Azure most often used for a blockchain application. Lastly, with Azure the underlying data is secure and the option to scale is always available.
