Blockchain

A blockchain is a distributed ledger that serves as a historical record of a set of transactions.

A blockchain is a distributed, cryptographically secure, and tamper-proof ledger that is shared among a number of entities or parties. Trust, accountability, transparency, and security are the foundations of blockchain technology, resulting from a decentralized, non-repudiable, highly scalable, and resilient recording mechanism. Effectively, it's an autonomously managed database. Contents in the blockchain ledger are immutable, holding a complete audit trail, and are the “golden record” of truth, creating trust among multiple participants.

iWay Service Manager (iSM) offers integrated support for blockchain applications. Proven integration capabilities work with Hyperledger Fabric-based applications process flows introduce transactions to the ledger, and query and retrieve information. This makes it easier to integrate blockchain applications into your enterprise with Information Builders’ WebFOCUS BI and analytics platform.

Blockchain technology is extremely powerful, flexible, reliable, and secure. The distributed ledger (blockchain) records the transactions, such as the exchange of assets or data, among the participants in the network, and is sequentially grouped into blocks. Each block is chained to the previous block using cryptographic trust and assurance.

The open source Hyperledger Fabric project is a collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. It is supported by IBM through the Linux Foundation and includes leaders in finance, banking, Internet of Things (IoT), supply chains, manufacturing, and technology.

iWay Service Manager (iSM) from Information Builders works with and alongside Hyperledger Fabric-based applications. Hyperledger Fabric events can be processed by iSM to enable real-time handling of these events, triggering the appropriate processes to integrate the events into your application.

iWay Service Manager enables organizations to create, compose, and operate services, whether deployed as web services, APIs, or through other interfaces. By helping organizations reuse existing application and infrastructure investments, iSM lays the foundation for a quickly deployable and easily maintainable service-oriented and event-oriented architecture for Blockchain.

Using our patented approach to sorting and queuing within a process helps eliminate potential errors in the sequence of events posted to the blockchain. iSM alleviates most of the technical concerns of blockchain integration.
