Over the past few years, there has been a lot of talk about blockchain and its potential in the enterprise landscape. Today, blockchain is no longer a hype: it has become a reality, and is transforming processes and how enterprises do business, across a wide range of industries.
Hyperledger Sawtooth is an open source project under the Hyperledger umbrella, and works as an enterprise-level blockchain system used for building, deploying, and running distributed ledger applications and networks.
The Hyperledger Sawtooth for Application Developers course starts with the basics of blockchain technology and the concepts of permissioned networks, then describes the important features of Hyperledger Sawtooth.
It includes a sample distributed application, Sawtooth Simple Supply, that is based on a simplified supply chain example. This blockchain application includes a web-app frontend, a transaction processor (the equivalent of a smart contract) for the blockchain business logic, and a custom REST API for communication. Learning how to code this sample application will teach you about important Hyperledger Sawtooth concepts and will help you understand how to create your own enterprise-level Hyperledger Sawtooth application.
The 2019 Technology Industry Innovation conducted by KPMG around the adoption of blockchain technologies suggests that 41 percent of businesses are likely to adopt and implement blockchain into their business operations in the next three years. Another important aspect revealed by this survey is that 48 percent of enterprises believe that blockchain will change the way they conduct and manage their business activities in the near future.
