The State of Blockchain Applications in Cybersecurity

eSecurity Planet

Whether perceived or real, a lack of understanding about blockchain technology has slowed the adoption of advanced distributed database technology in the past decade. This functionality makes forging a record in a blockchain ledger extremely difficult at best. What is a Blockchain?

Not all blockchains are created equal when it comes to energy consumption

CGI

Not all blockchains are created equal when it comes to energy consumption. As we talk with clients about blockchain implementations at scale, a question we often get is, “What about the high-energy consumption?” This is a common misconception, as only some blockchain implementations are big energy consumers. Blockchain technology can facilitate trust in distributed systems. How that trust is built affects the amount of energy required.

It is not just about security, but in utilizing Blockchain to secure your company and your information. But it is not just about security, but in utilizing Blockchains to secure your company and your information. That is where blockchains come in. What is a Blockchain? Blockchains can be hard to understand, especially if you do not know many technological terms. They types of Blockchains are: Public Blockchains. Private Blockchains.

Darwin’s advice to the energy sector: get agile!

CGI

Darwin’s advice to the energy sector: get agile! What does Charles Darwin have to do with digital transformation in the energy sector? Darwin’s theory—that it isn’t the strongest of the species that survives, but the ones most responsive to change—can point the way for utilities to move faster toward a sustainable energy system. Biggest challenges for the energy sector. This scenario will be enabled through so-called microgrids and energy islands. .

Delivering on the benefits of data: How utilities can get the first-mover advantage

CGI

Delivering on the benefits of data: How utilities can get the first-mover advantage. With the energy transition underway, there is a similar bold “rethink” taking place in the way energy companies view solutions, particularly around managing data. However, there is still ground to be covered before the near real-time data requirements of distributed energy resources, balancing and consumer access are met.

Emerging business models in the utilities industry

CGI

Emerging business models in the utilities industry. In the utilities industry, new business models are emerging, many of which are closely linked to the pressing need to embrace a low carbon economy. This shift is driving changes in demand, caused by increased electrification, and in production, with more renewable energy generation. Consumers are becoming energy suppliers and some independent organizations are even building-out their own power assets.

European Utility Week 2018: Top 5 takeaways and the call to ‘journey together’

European Utility Week 2018: Top 5 takeaways and the call to ‘journey together’. This ancient African proverb sums up, quite accurately, the sentiment at the recently concluded European Utility Week (EUW) 2018. Among the event’s numerous sessions and conversations on the low carbon energy program, energy markets and digitalization, what stood out was an overarching call to ‘journey together’. Blockchain is enabling the “democratization” of energy.

Digital-born firms from telecoms are key drivers of the transformation of the energy system

CGI

Digital-born firms from telecoms are key drivers of the transformation of the energy system. As technology advancements outside of the utilities industry drive change and increase consumer expectations, utility consumers are beginning to expect the same level of customer experience and want technology to instantaneously deliver greater convenience and value. Utilities are disinvesting in traditional bulk generation, such as E.ON

Comment le numérique rebat les cartes du secteur énergétique

CGI

Digital disruption is in the cards for the energy sector. The pace at which digitalization is accelerating poses a major challenge for organizations in the energy sector. The momentum is unsurprising, given that 81% of the utilities executives interviewed for the 2016 CGI Global 1000 outlook revealed that transforming to become a digital enterprise is a top strategic priority. Is there a feeling of economic urgency in the energy industry?

STEPS FORWARD: Math geniuses strive to make a pivotal advance — by obfuscating software code
