Kathryn Harrison makes the case for choosing IBM when selecting a partner to help you develop your system of record.

In this video:

We can’t get around it – a system of record (SOR) is defined as the authoritative data source for a given data element or piece of information. A network of secure, trusted transactions depends on having a single, accurate, verifiable template of data because multiple sources may disagree about a piece of information. There may be semantic differences, alternate opinion or definition parameters … why systems may even time the extract, transform, load processes that create data using various methods.

Transactions, the backbone of the world’s economy, can only occur when the system of record is mutually trusted. Like with blockchain.

In this video, Kathryn Harrison makes the case for choosing IBM when selecting a partner to help you develop your system of record. From the developer’s perspective, she explains how blockchain applies to modern business practices, discusses Hyperledger® Fabric™’s role in running an enterprise-level blockchain network, and details how Hyperledger Composer works and what makes it an important tool for the maintenance of a distributed ledger network. She also explores prototyping and app development acceleration using these tools.

Hyperledger Composer is a set of APIs, a modeling language, and a programming model you can use to quickly define and deploy business networks and applications that allow participants to send transactions that exchange assets. The IBM Blockchain, based on open source Hyperledger® Fabric™ technology, is used to store the state of assets in asset registries while the consensus protocol ensures that transactions are validated by concerned organizations in the business network.

The Composer programming model is based on defining and deploying a business network definition, which contains a data model that defines the name and structure of assets, participants, and transactions in the business network. The business network also specifies transaction processor functions (written in ES5 JavaScript) that are automatically run on a Hyperledger® Fabric™ when transactions are submitted by clients.

Composer defines JavaScript APIs to submit transactions and to create, retrieve, update, and delete assets within asset registries.
