Philippine rural banks partner with UnionBank for blockchain
"There are two takeawys from this. The first concerns Visa and broadeneing acceptance og B2B Connect. Though not formally available it is clearly making progress.

The second is that, though blockchain is complex, that does not mean complexity has to exclude smaller business. As the UnionBank link with the four small Philippine rural banks shows, blockchain can reach any level of business."

FedEx leaks highly sensitive customer data
"The data came from the acquisition of Bongo International that FedEx made back in 2014. It later renamed and then shutdown the business unit in April 2017. What is not clear is how long the data has been exposed. Was it originally exposed by Bongo before the acquisition? Did it become orphaned data after the company was shutdown? Either way, there is evidence that the data has been exposed for some time."

Is Kodak’s blockchain initiative another blockchain mirage?
"This ‘chasing the blockchain’ attempt to recreate itself does seem bound to end in failure, as Kerrisdale Capital describes. But it may be less to do with the indictment of blockchains and more to do with crude financials. Nevertheless, this fall of this once- titan requires observation to see who is right."

2018 – are we feeling the manufacturing revolution?
"Clearly there is a lot of work yet to be done by many manufacturers around the world. We have discussed such things as IIOT, ERP and Servitization in this article. However, there are many more tech drivers which directly affect manufacturers. Areas such as artificial intelligence, Automation/Robotics, Additive Manufacturing and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) will also change the face of manufacturing."

Blockchain Food Safety Alliance in China
"Walmart’s participation matters. It is already a world leader in global food safety. In China, it invests heavily in food safety research through the Walmart Food Safety and Collaboration Center. It has promoted food safety, both through its own supplier network and working with JD. In combination the two have leveraged JD’s expertise in the application of artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, big data and other new technologies for the protection of consumers."

AdGuard calls out sites for cryptojacking failures
"The company reports that there are around 2,500 downloads of this code per day. This is likely to be for more than just cryptojacking. Downloads are also likely to be used by other cybercriminals for malvertising. It is also entirely possible that some websites are using the code to boost the number of ads that they serve. With many advertisers paying per impression of an ad, there is a lot of interest in improving ad serving."

HPE Re-Discovers itself, but is it on the right track?
"However, HPE has strength in certain verticals and is bringing to market products and services that focus on those areas. For example, its new Express App Platform is for manufacturers that want Cloud benefits in an on-premise infrastructure that is tailored to their specific needs and technology. Competing with the other big hardware vendors in specific niches is more likely to be successful than a broader market strategy."

RAND’s blockchain challenges and opportunities
"No doubt because the BSI commissioned the Report, its focus is on standards. There is relatively little examination of the processing implications (including the speed and size of DLT/blockchains). The description: “the distributed nature of DLT/blockchain systems and the need for increased computing power could involve high energy consumption and associated costs” does not explore the issues in depth. Similarly, the merits of interworking DLT/blochchains could do with more depth."

IFS joins Salesforce Ohana
"The announcement comes as a slight surprise but is no doubt in part due to the presence on the board of Craig Conway. Conway joined the IFS board in August 2016 but has been a member of the Salesforce board since 2005. It suddenly brings another potential acquisition ERP target for Salesforce into play. There is little information available about how deep the integration with Sales Cloud is but it will be interesting to see whether IFS build other interfaces."

Cross-border blockchain banking takes a big step forwards, with dangers
"Then there is IBM. As ET speculated not long ago, IBM becomes the blockchain monster. The participating banks depend on IBM for development and enhancement. They become beholden to what IBM decides, of course in consultation with its clients. Remember SWIFT. This is a member-institution that more often than not tells its members what it wants and not vice versa. Or Visa: it was once a bank member-owned ‘co-operative’. Now it is its own master."

SAP improves unconscious bias functionality
"That is has taken so long to deliver this functionality demonstrates the difficulty in achieving the desired results. What isn’t clear from the announcement is how deep the analysis goes. Unconscious bias can be subtle and is often cultural in nature. It will be interesting to see how effective it is in some companies and their best customers."

Xero tells accountants it’s Digital or Die
"Damon Anderson, Director of Partner at Xero, comments: “Over the next few years, small businesses and their accountants will need to embrace digital or run the risk of quickly being extinct. Our report shows that one in ten small business owners and a fifth of accountants in firms still use paper ledgers – a tool that dates back to the year 1299 – with many losing hours to menial administrative tasks. It’s time to work smarter."

SAP hits 150 on platform – is it enough?
"Without actually calling out Workday, it is clear that SAP have their sights targeted on its rival. Workday announced their platform earlier this year. However, while Aneel Bhusir, CEO Workday mentioned that they are working with ISV’s there are no actual announcements on applications. With Workday Rising, possibly the place where these will be unveiled, SAP clearly wanted to state their case strongly at their own convention."

Bitcoin and estcoin cryptocurrency craziness
"ET deliberately separates blockchain from Bitcoin/ICOs/cryptocurrencies. This occurs for two underlying reasons:

we believe that blockchain technologies have profound potential, even if as yet unproven, for enterprises
we regard the cryptocurrency/ICO investments arena as changing too fast as well as being beyond our competence.

This may have to change. But, for the moment, it explains why we spend so little time on cryptocurrencies."

Microsoft warns of new tech support scam approach
"The new email campaigns use reputable brands to trick users. Microsoft has published some of the emails it has captured. These appear to come from big brands such as Alibaba, Amazon and LinkedIn. They all contain links that if examined are not to the sites they claim to be from. The reason these emails succeed is that people often take the email at face value, trust the brand and just click on the link without thinking about it."

Cisco warns of DeOS attacks
"The use of the Internet of Things (IoT) by hackers has been well documented. A significant part of the problem is the lack of security in too many Internet connected devices. Enterprise IT departments often have no say in the purchase of many of these devices. Security cameras, fridges, televisions and other goods are often purchased by different departments. Few of them have any security training."

Will IBM reinvent software licensing with containers?
"When considering microservices and processes running in a container, it is hard to see how companies will justify asking customers to pay a per month figure. Charging only when the container is live will appeal to many customers. They will be much more relaxed about taking on new microservices and this, in turn, has the ability to fuel a new era of software development. Developers able to see an immediate return on their development are more likely to build more microservices."
