Oracle Corp. will unveil its blockchain software starting this month, joining the growing list of companies offering products that use the digital-ledger technology behind bitcoin.

 

The Redwood City, California-based company will introduce a platform-as-a-service blockchain product this month and decentralised ledger-based applications next month, Thomas Kurian, president of product development, said Monday at Oracle headquarters.
 
Blockchain is essentially a spreadsheet that's duplicated and updated regularly across thousands of computers over the Internet. The structure eliminates risks that come with information held centrally by a single entity, like cloud-computing providers.
 
The world's second-largest software company is working with Banco de Chile to log inter-bank transactions on a hyperledger, Kurian said. Another client is the government of Nigeria, which has sought to document customs and import duties on blockchain. Oracle's products will also be pitched to pharmaceutical companies to track and trace batches of medicine, which may potentially ease recalls.

 

Behind the hype of cryptocurrencies, software companies have raced to leverage the blockchain's ledger model to simplify processes. Salesforce.com Chief Executive Officer Marc Benioff said in March that his company wants to unveil a blockchain product by its annual Dreamforce conference this fall. International Business Machines Corp. and Amazon.com's cloud unit have also both sought enterprise uses for blockchain technology. Kurian said Oracle's products will be compatible with other platforms.

Thought of the day

🙏‼मीठा मोती ‼🙏 पैर में से काँटा निकल जाए तो.. चलने में मज़ा आ जाता है, और मन में से अहंकार निकल जाए तो.. जीवन जीने में मज़ा आ जाता है.. चलने वाले पैरों में कितना फर्क है , एक आगे है तो एक पीछे । पर ना तो आगे वाले को अभिमान है और ना पीछे वाले को अपमान । क्योंकि उन्हें पता होता है कि पलभर में ये बदलने वाला है । " इसी को जिन्दगी कहते है "? "खुश रहिये मुस्कुराते रहिये ‼‼ सुप्रभात ‼‼ 🌹 आपका दिन मंगलमय 🌹
