When it comes to blockchain technology and its underlying potential to be the connecting fabric that serves as a catalyst towards trans-formative change, big tech players like Oracle have already staked their respective claims to the territory. We sat down with Fitri Abdullah, Managing Director of Oracle Malaysia, for his thoughts on Blockchain technology and its wider role in the current global IT ecosystem. This is our third part in this interview series.
At Asia Blockchain Review, we are always looking at how Blockchain can re-imagine and revolutionize pain points into proper potential. From your perspective, how do you see Blockchain fairing in this regard, both locally and globally?
Fitri believes that Blockchain has the potential to transform global businesses across multiple industries. In particular, it is helping businesses:
To help customers increase trust and provide agility in transactions across their business networks, Oracle offers both Oracle Blockchain Platform, a comprehensive, distributed ledger cloud PaaS and on-premises platform that enables users to provision Blockchain networks. It enables businesses to join other organizations’ networks, and deploy and run smart contracts to support trusted transactions and real-time data sharing for current and new applications. Additionally, Oracle released in 2019 the Oracle Intelligent Track and Trace SaaS Application built on the Blockchain Platform to provide business-ready functionality for Supply Chain Management users. This new use-case-specific SaaS application with built-in blockchain capabilities helps enhance traceability and transparency throughout the supply chain.
Through these offerings, Oracle is helping enterprises resolve many of the challenges they are facing both locally and internationally. For instance, Oracle’s comprehensive Blockchain platform is built on Hyperledger Fabric, an open-source project governed by The Linux Foundation, ensuring compatibility with other member systems. It comes in a plug and play format making integration easy with Oracle and third-party applications helping ensure fast integration with diverse systems of record and data sources, making deployment more simple and cost-effective. Fitri explains that it is delivered as an enterprise-grade, managed service with a 99.95 percent uptime guarantee, backed by enhanced security, availability, and continuous ledger backups for multi-data-center disaster recovery. “As it is pre-assembled, including a built-in identity management framework, object store, and REST APIs, this reduces setup time from weeks to minutes…some businesses have already adopted Blockchain and we try as much to help businesses make this shift,” he concluded.
