Industry 4.0 sees a Blockchain-Revolution

Just over a week ago I had the pleasure to speak in front of an active and interested audience, who were taking time out of their busy schedule to learn about the fundamental changes Blockchain can bring to the society and the market we live and work in.

The University of applied Sciences of Würzburg & Schweinfurt was a great venue to speak.

For everyone that might have an interest in how Blockchain technology on steroids combined with the internet of things and the new fifth generation of GSM might build the triangle that could turn out to be the most important instrument in the orchestra of the 21nd century, I am sharing the proceedings.

Thanks to Innovecs, under whose sponsorship the event was taking place and for the awesome auspice extended by Professor Dr. Thilo Büsching, holding the professorship for Economics and Media-Management in FHWS, who also happens to be a great friend of mine for many years.

Can Blockchain Improve Health? Great article by Prof Bill Buchanan!

Combining the powers of Blockchain into asset-management in healthcare equipment is a great addition to the wide areas of application for this new technology.

We have seen Blockchain taking its place in granting interested and properly authorized parties such as research, general practitioners (GPs) and clinical staff, insurance and the Pharma industry access to restricted documents such as agglomerated info from electronic health records or individual information. An MIT spin-off is working on this particular aspect with healthcare organisations globally.  Others are following or thinking about doing so (e.g. ) We have seen its advent in other sectors, especially in the insurance sector.

Now combining Blockchain technology with asset-management systems in the healthcare sector is a new approach:

Within clinical trials, too, Blockchain can be used to overcome the problems around fraudulent results, in that a complete record, with timestamps, of a trail, and which can be verifiable. This will provide both integrity and clinical provenance, and hope to increase collaboration and innovation. It is thought that the Pharma industry could benefit of $200 billion in defining a chain-of-custody in the supply chain.

Trust provides the core part of a medical infrastructure. Blockchain helps in decentralising it.

Assetmanagement iTAM for license-management – new Whitepaper available

Our new whitepaper regarding iTAM, the operating-system independent IT-Asset-Management solution, based on R&P renowned managed project office methodology is available. The MPO allows customers to perform a quick asset management analysis, regardless of operating systems in the network, data center or on-premise of the organisation.

The underlying toolset allows much more than the iTAM asset-management. It is part of the suite that also does disaster recovery, patch- and release-management and backup- and restore automation. With the right dashboard, management can easily manage licensing issues and be informed about the state of things at any given moment in time, get warnings on license threshold limits reached and avoid under- or overlicensing issues, both a costly affair.

MPO and the underlying toolset can help customers to manage costs in IT infrastructure much better.
