Cyber Insurance: Anxious Demand Spurs Growing Market

1Q 2018

A February 2018 announcement by tech OEMs Apple and Cisco revealed a new partnership with insurers Allianz and Aon. Allianz has certified products from both vendors (Cisco Ransomware Defense; and Apple iPhone, iPad, and Mac devices) with respect to their security and will offer organizations using them more favorable cyber coverage, including better terms and conditions, reduced deductibles, cyber resilience evaluation (by Aon), and incident response services.


eSIM Handsets – MNO Friend or Foe?

1Q 2018

The eSIM remains a hot topic and one which original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), mobile network operators (MNOs), smart card and secure IC vendors continue to explore, prepare and strategize. Today, the handset market has begun to move, driven by Google’s recently launched Pixel 2 handsets with eSIM inclusion, raising expectations that other OEMs will follow suit. In addition, the rise of the eSIM has raised fears that it may be used as a platform for OEMs to directly compete with its current MNO customer base, using the eSIM as a platform from which to launch MVNO services.

Leveraging Blockchain for Industrial Manufacturing & Supply Chain Logistics

March 29, 2018, 2 p.m.

As an emergent technology, few have been as disruptive as blockchain in stirring up furor with regards to its transformative potential. With some hailing it as the next digital miracle, and others disdaining it as vaporware hype, the spectacular volatility of Bitcoin has only served to stoke the fires of debate. There is groundbreaking value in the emerging blockchain phenomena beyond cryptocurrencies, notably around manufacturing and supply chain logistics. Can blockchains be leveraged to reduce friction for faster and more efficient logistics in industrial manufacturing and supply? This webinar will seek to explore the applicability of blockchain to further the Industry 4.0 movement.

This webinar will address the following five questions:

  • How can blockchain be used in industrial applications?
  • What is the potential of smart contracts for manufacturing?
  • How can ledger technology deliver logistics 4.0?
  • How can blockchain streamline the supply chain?
  • Is blockchain a viable technology for Industry 4.0?

Following the webinar, ABI Research Enabling Platforms Vice President, Dan Shey, will give attendees an introduction of our new Blockchain & Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) research service.
