IT Process Platform

Information workers primarily rely on familiar desktop productivity applications like email and spreadsheets to help them perform their daily job functions, analyze data, and collaborate with others. However, these workers are not leveraging enterprise system capabilities which require a digital transformation of existing processes adding security, scale, trust, integration and collaboration. The Boardwalk Digital Ledger enables this process transformation.

IT Process Platform Challenges

  • Information workers require the ability to work collaboratively on their desktops with data stored in enterprise systems which is today only available through a few users. This means the power of business applications is not being extended to every employee across the enterprise
  • Out of necessity, rogue processes have been created to solve business problems using spreadsheets which are inherently not enterprise quality
  • It’s difficult to control these rogue desktop process because IT has no easy way to gain insight into their status, no ability to control who has access to the data, and no way to centrally manage these ad-hoc processes

Boardwalk Digital Ledger as an IT Process Platform

Boardwalk utilizes a patented digital ledger blockchain data management technology which runs on top of industry standard relational databases and other data stores. This unique technology bridges the gap between the cumbersome record-storage world of relational database systems or basic key-value pair data environments and the smart contract aware, business data modeling of the digitally transforming enterprise. Boardwalk is a technology breakthrough that does for tabular data what relational systems did for file systems.

  • The Boardwalk Digital Ledger server is an enterprise-quality data management platform for your company’s multi-party planning processes which enables an access controlled, auditable, and secure data exchange between all parties
  • Boardwalk enables a two-way, collaborative exchange between multiple transactional enterprise processes and ad-hoc, desktop-based productivity processes
  • Boardwalk can work with any industry standard relational database system and any tabular UI which means it seamlessly fits within your existing enterprise infrastructure
  • Boardwalk digitally transforms legacy manual processes into enterprise quality applications while retaining the power and flexibility of the desktop which means Boardwalk-driven processes can be deployed in weeks, not months

Benefits of using Boardwalk as an IT Process Platform

  • Eliminate the information worker’s reliance on business application experts and seamlessly connect the process and productivity application worlds
  • Digitally transform all your company’s critical legacy processes, but retain the flexibility needed for the desktop user
  • Data from ERP, SCM, CRM and other enterprise systems can be pulled securely into the Boardwalk environment so users can collect and “mature” the data before it is ready for input back into the systems of record
  • Enterprise data used in isolation on the desktop can now be included as part of the overall enterprise workflow while eliminating the risk of being out of compliance with standards and policies while also enabling blockchain immutability and verification capabilities
