These days every major tech company is involved in blockchain technology in some way or another.
Microsoft blockchain engineering lead Marc Mercuri said,
“This kit extends the capabilities of our blockchain developer templates and Azure Blockchain Workbench, which incorporates Azure services for key management, off-chain identity and data, monitoring, and messaging APIs into a reference architecture that can be used to rapidly build blockchain-based applications.”
The first release of the training tool will focus on three key area, connecting interfaces, integrating data and systems, and deploying smart contracts and blockchain networks. Microsoft believes this will be an all-in-one solution to blockchain technology.
This end to end blockchain strategy should prove to be quite useful in many blockchain fields. The software company is greatly looking forward to creating an end to end blockchain solutions. Microsoft wants to provide support for people who cannot afford the Blockchain solutions.
The tech giant will incorporate other features such as voice tracking and messaging. These features will be an essential part of supply chain management. The company wants to integrate blockchain technology in other areas as well.
These include assistance for smartphones including iOS and Android devices and assimilation with the Internet of Things. The software behemoth is already offering support for many blockchain services including BitCoin and Ethereum.
Microsoft has also released a guide for developers that will help developers decentralize their applications, to get the service up and running.
Google, IBM, Intel, and Amazon are just some of the companies that have worked on blockchain technology. These companies have worked hard to provide solutions for companies that work solely on blockchain algorithms.
Microsoft might not be in this for the money. It might just be doing this to push the limits of blockchain infrastructure. The company wants to know how they can improve the lives of blockchain developers and companies working with this intricate software.
Previously Microsoft worked on blockchain projects that helped developers earn money, and protect users from spam calls in India.
The tech behemoth is ready to explore avenues for blockchain technology other than cryptocurrency. The company collaborated with the Decentralized Identity Foundation (DIF), to help protect users’ identity and online privacy.
Microsoft wanted to create a single point of access where a user’s consent to all apps and services were saved. The hub would be encrypted so users could feel more in control of their identity and privacy.
Security threats have become far too common to ignore them. Something needed to be done, so Microsoft stepped in. Hopefully, Microsoft will keep in close collaboration with such companies. This will provide users and developers with a taste of blockchain’s power.
