Sprache des Titels:
Blockchain technology has gained massive attention in the recent years with significant expectations that it could transform every industry for its promise of providing a single ?source of truth? for participants in a business network. Nevertheless, according to Gartner's 2016 hype cycle for emerging technologies, blockchain is entering its peak of inflated expectations and in fact, its years to mainstream to adoption is still 5 to 10 years ahead before the technology reaches a plateau of productivity. Since most of the blockchain efforts nowadays are still in a nascent state, we believe the time is right for database researchers and practitioners to get more deeply involved. In this talk, we put forward four components that researchers interesting in blockchain data management and analytics could increase focus on: (1) leverage query and transaction processing capabilities of mature data stores, (2) integrate on and off-chain data, (3) enable analytics services on blockchain as well as off-chain data, and (4) protect information from leakage. Finally, we will discuss number of blockchain applications in banking, insurance, and supply chain areas.
