Course Program Details
The Enterprise Blockchain for Healthcare, IOT, Energy, and Supply Chain online training program includes the following courses:
Enterprise Blockchain Overview
This course module introduces Blockchain for Enterprise with an emphasis on where and how Blockchain will impact corporations. Included is a short review of cryptocurrencies followed by an in-depth review on Blockchain’s underlying technological advantages and where best to deploy in industry. A review of smart contracts is included along with the types of blockchain models: public, private and hybrid. The course also highlights the major cloud company offerings on Blockchain for the learner's own project exploration with a familiar service provider.
Enterprise Blockchain for Grid Modernization
Blockchain for Grid Modernization and Energy provides an overview of the benefits of Blockchain for grid management, an explanation on how Blockchain for energy works, some key drivers of adoption for energy and the Open Blockchain Energy (OBE) framework for Blockchain adoption to manage modern energy grid networks more efficiently. Finally we highlight the transactive energy model where grids are managed at a more granular level enabling higher efficiencies and better localized utilization of energy networks.
Enterprise Blockchain for Healthcare
Blockchain for Healthcare Data storage and ID is a complicated topic which is unpacked in this enterprise-level module. Starting with patient identification and through personally identifiable information and onto clinical data, the course reviews blockchain applicability to healthcare data and the current industry adoption of blockchain from startup ICOs to enterprise use cases.
Enterprise Blockchain for Supply Chain
Blockchain for Supply Chains is a natural combination of two technologies designed for transactions with a shared or common ledge. Often cross-corporation, a supply chain represents a flow of goods and is frequently cross-border. Managing all of the data on a single trusted chain that is updated and retrieved by many participants is a significant endeavor and the course describes how enterprises are adopting Blockchain for this use. Example applications in-use today and best practices are reviewed. Also included are predictions for future supply chain models enabled by Blockchain. Finally some suggestions on common misconceptions about what Blockchains can and can’t do for supply chains is explained.
Enterprise Blockchain for the Internet of Things
The convergence, opportunities, use cases and challenges of Blockchain and Internet of Things (IoT) are highlighted in this course. First a general understanding of the opportunities and challenges associated with the convergence of Blockchain technology and IoT are covered. Then emerging use cases, projects, and technologies that apply Blockchain and leverage IoT's mutual advantages are explained. The course finishes with an outlook on the future of Blockchain and IoT.
