The biggest thing in tech 2015-2025?

From time to time we contemplate about which developments, movements or innovations are those that really matter, and that make this frequently mentioned difference. The results of these intellectual games must be subjective and are generated from a uniquely individual perspective. Things get fascinating, though, if you’re convinced that a specific development not only qualifies as your personal No 1 but should be on many people’s A-list.  Speaking of technology, my personal No 1 which back in 2009 was ‚Apps’, since 2015 is „Blockchain“. Beside developments such as VR and AR that certainly will honour their promises, the blockchain will fundamentally change the way we use the internet. You can regard it as a layer on top of the internet which allows a completely different approach to transactions – i.e. the end-user perspective – and supply chains – i.e. B2B perspective. Without summing up and repeating all aspects of a blockchain, let’s focus on just one aspect (which, by the way, is the only reason for using  a blockchain, anyway) – the automated consensus made possible by smart contracts. A smart contract is an algorithm defining and executing a set of rules, i.e. without an additional notary service deciding upon […]

Let’s discuss all things Ethereum at our Ethereum Munich Meetup

Let’s discuss all things Ethereum at our Ethereum Munich Meetup

More and more Big Data projects we with Datarella are involved in demand not only administrative or legal security layers but also state-of-the-art technical frameworks to provide the maximum security there is for business as well as petsonal data. To provide our clients with sustainable solutions we have partnered with Ethereum and its spin-off Ethcore. The Ethereum framework enables us to build business models on top of it, using a very sophisticated blockchain approach, smart contracts and elements of the DAO concept and finally, our own product, the Datarella Data Trust. Since the blockchain, smart contracts, DAO and especially Ethereum are quite new to the Big Data scene, we aim to make them better known to a broader audience. So we have started the Ethereum Munich Meetup as a platform for presentations, discussions and development of Ethereum-based ideas, concepts, use cases, projects, etc.. If you are interested in all things Ethereum feel invited to our regular meetups!

What you can expect from Datarella in 2016

What you can expect from Datarella in 2016

We always take a little time in the very first days of a year to define Datarella’s main goals for this year. This time it was a pleasant task since 2015 went very well for Datarella: we achieved most of our goals and we could start without any legacy issues. So, what to expect from Datarella in 2016? Beside our growing consulting business with fascinating projects and clients, we will focus on our product Data Trust and our project Data Coach.  Due to our tight schedule in 2015, we haven’t published much about Data Trust and Data Coach, yet.  I’d like to give a brief overview on both in this post. Data Trust Generally speaking, Data Trust is a secure data market model for Big Data projects. Sharing data between businesses makes much sense: Both, data processing and analytics scale with the data, and development, quality assurance, as well as support become very efficient. The problem: Many businesses are hesitant to share their data with partners for security reasons, to maintain their competitive advantage, and also obligatory compliance aspects regarding data protection. Data Trust solves this deadlock: With it we provide a secure sharing solution for corporations. Datarella organizes each client’s […]
