When people go to the doctor, they provide all of their most sensitive information, from their health issues to their phone number, to a doctor they trust.


Blockchain Prediction: 2020 Will Enable Levels of Data Trust

We’ve just published Splunk’s 2020 Predictions about a wide range of data technologies, from AI to virtual reality to the security threat of deepfakes.

Introducing Splunk App for Hyperledger Fabric

Blockchain is a new, complementary piece of enterprise infrastructure, and just like any infrastructure it has the same elements of performance, security and stability. Organizations will need to come up with a plan to monitor performance, security and stability. Splunk makes it easy to do just that, not just with blockchain but with the rest of the enterprise infrastructure. This is absolutely necessary for getting to production and also makes application development faster.


Observability on blockchain and the Hyperledger project

Hyperledger Fabric is a blockchain framework by the Linux Foundation that uses some open source projects to build a modular blockchain application. And do you know what? You can monitor your Hyperledger Fabric applications with the Elastic Stack. :) We are going to assume a specific Hyperledger Fabric setup. With Hyperledger Fabric you can deploy your application using different "blocks" to achieve the same result.
