DIO Working Group Blockchain

Mission of the working group

Since its founding at the beginning of 2018, the WKO working group (Blockchain working group – WKO.at) has been dealing with applications, benefits and risks of blockchain technology in various economic sectors. In its own blockchain test lab, potential business cases are tested in a secure environment. In the context of a double branding, DIO’s Blockchain working group cooperates with the WKO working group and analyses the following general questions and clarifies the following topics in more detail:

  • What forms of blockchain are there and when should which form be used for a company?
  • Which data can be usefully written to the blockchain (and which not)?
  • Which partners do I need to prepare the infrastructure and use the data?
  • Provision of a simple and secure “Austrian Blockchain infrastructure”.
  • Identification of different business cases for companies and sectors
  • Model representation of the integration of a Blockchain in the company (data models, process models, business models …)
  • Further development of functionalities in the Blockchain Testlab
  • Cooperation with the Austrian Blockchain Center (ABC), with implementation of joint projects
  • Model implementation in the transport sector (blockchain-based freight documents).

The meeting dates will be announced in good time on the WKO website under events.
