Topic: “Integrating Hyperledger Fabric into an Enterprise Cloud Platform”.
Enterprise customer adoption of blockchain technologies and Fabric in particular depends on simplifying the deployment and provisioning of all the underlying dependencies, creating a resilient and supportable platform for development and day-to-day operations, as well as rapidly integrating the applications that interact with Fabric smart contracts to run transactions or query the ledger. This session will describe how Hyperldeger Fabric can be deployed into and leverage modern cloud platform capabilities. The technical requirements and integration points will be discussed and specific areas illustrated based on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
Speaker 2 : Ranga Krishnan is VP Technology at Skuchain. He has been working with Hyperledger Fabric since its initial launch in 2016 and has run several developer education meetups including a four part course on Hyperledger Fabric in 2017. He has spoken at industry conferences of BAFT, ATFA, ICC Banking Commission, Cleantech Forum and IoT World to educate and advance the adoption of blockchain in enterprise and commerce.
Topic: “Hyperledger Fabric 1.2 and beyond”.
With the move to a 3 month release cycle, Hyperledger Fabric is due to release version 1.2 in June 2018. This session will describe the new features in version 1.2 and discuss the roadmap for future releases. Specifically the privacy enhancing features in 1.2 such as Side DB and the recent announcement of Zero Knowledge Asset Transfer (ZKAT) in Hyperledger Fabric will discussed.

Topic: A live demonstration of supply chain Trade Finance on blockchain
A live demonstration of supply chain Trade Finance on blockchain. Limit the time and costs associated with intermediary processing, eliminate cumbersome offline reconciliation and reduce fraud risks. Banks, buyers, sellers, carriers, insurance providers and govt. agencies can process Trade Finance requests, issue and operate financial instruments, endorse transactions and documentary evidences, track shipments, trigger payment transfers, etc. on a permitted Hyperledger fabric.
