Microsoft

Project Details

Microsoft in Fargo has a significant amount of resources allocated to Research and Development. In the never-ending (as it seems) technologically advancing society that we live in it is always vital to try and stay ahead of the curve. The proposed project can be viewed as a trial project to see how Blockchain technology can be integrated using the Internet of Things concept in order to monitor assets, like vehicles performing various tasks, using a mobile application. By tracking the asset’s behavior in real time, future clients can optimize their product in a secure manner, thanks to the blockchain technology, without having to be stationary; allowing for a broader clientele. Microsoft is experimenting with blockchain and possible applications due to their Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations ERP product. In perhaps an initial planning phase of a long term move they have decided to experiment with blockchain technology to see if they could possibly integrate their currently centralized ERP with a distributed trust model.
