Bert Latamore #HyperLedger does not have the requirement for complex math problems. We have a set of validators for any transaction. @DonnaExplorer #theCUBE http://bit.ly/2cpxaG...

Bert Latamore Things like personal questions are so inefficient. If those proofs could be on a Blockchain ID service then U could prove identity to someone without requiring constant reproving to different systems. @DonnaExplorer #theCUBE http://bit.ly/2cpxaG...

The Cisco IBM partnership has heated up since IBM sold off its x86 division (and BNT networking)

Dave Vellante Cisco OEMs part of its hyper converged stack fm springpath and ultimately imo wants to own that

Dave Vellante Z is all about modernization to keep mining the base; Power is about ecosystem and Storage is about SW def + flash

Dave Vellante Goal of Power is 20% market share by 2020 (that's the entire ecosystem, not just IBM)
