About this Episode

For this week's episode, we're conversed with Srinath Perera, software architect and vice president of research in the CTO Office of WSO2, about his research on the practical uses of blockchain.

WSO2 is a sponsor of The New Stack and it offers an integrated platform for API management, integration, identity and access management, analytics and IoT. And its research is also on the cutting edge of cloud native technology. It is also the company behind the Ballerina cloud native programming language.

Perera leads these research efforts and has written recently about serverless technologies and blockchain for us. With blockchain, his team wasn’t sure which use cases are feasible and would also deliver a clear value. So they did a systematic analysis of blockchain technology using the company's Emerging Technology Analysis Canvas (ETAC).
