Abstract:
Blockchains have great potential to enormously improve inter-business collaboration. Hyperledger Fabric is a business focussed blockchain that IBM, and many others are investing heavily in. Whilst the potential is great, the barrier to entry for development can be high due to the low-level APIs. and specific blockchain knowledge that is required.

Fabric Composer is an IBM initiated Open Source project to provide a business-centric abstraction to lower this barrier of entry. Even with this lower barrier integration with existing systems of record are essential. In this talk, we'll introduce Fabric Composer and show how integration with systems such as WebSphere Liberty, IIB are facilitated.
