Digital Collaboration Platforms

"Most certainly a better collaboration across companies!"

Situation

The Distributed Ledger technology doesn't just enable the development of innovative solutions in the financial sector. This technology even has the potential to generate meaningful concepts for a whole new range of business models and industries. We are therefore conducting investigations for an internationally operating research institution, whether a technically viable collaboration platform based on Distributed Ledger technology can be implemented.

Approach

A cross-company team is working closely to develop an approach for the creation of a collaboration platform that is best suited for all useres. Such a platform enables the cross-database and barrier-free exchange of files and documents between different project participants. However, it also always raises legal questions. 

Through the targeted use of distributed ledger technology, we were able to ensure both the efficient exchange of files, as well as a highly effective copyright protection.


Indicator Status

The specified goals were quickly achieved in close cooperation with the customer. An innovative model was developed that is able to provide the benefits of a cross-company collaboration platform, while effectively guaranteeing the rights of participants at the same time. 

 

“The Distributed Ledger technology can be used to generate many different options and applications that in turn create a real added value in economic, social and legal areas."
