This session is a continuation of the opening keynote by Martin Kuppinger on the future Composable Enterprise. Together we take a look at what powers the composable enterprise and which concepts and technologies can contribute to building a composable enterprise.
In this talk John will present one way of modelling the potential value propositions for the parties (people and organisations) in decentralised identity models. Using real world examples of products and systems, he’ll use the model to consider their value propositions, and whether we need a “value exchange” ecosystem to enable the decentralised identity market to thrive.
Along the way the talk will consider the risk of false prophets and fake profits, where the residual value will remain, as well as why (in John’s opinion) decentralised identity is following the story arc of “gradually, then suddenly” (E. Hemmingway, The Sun Also Rises).
Decentralized identity is an incredibly flexible technology that solves fundamental problems in the way we manage digital communication. But this capacity to do more than one thing at once can be a source of confusion: How do I actually build a decentralized or self-sovereign identity solution today? How do I put all the components together? In this session we use the framework of a Trusted Data Ecosystem to show how you can use decentralized identifiers, software agents, verifiable credentials, and the supporting infrastructure to verify data without having to check in with the source of data. We show how we used Trusted Data Ecosystems to deliver solutions to financial services, healthcare, and travel to global enterprises—and we give you a preview of what the next steps are for these technologies.
