MSP uses the block chain to improve management services in four ways


nnnRush time comment: block chain has now been a number of areas of concern, different industries are envisaged related use cases. But the management service providers seem to have not yet clearly aware of the impact of the technology on its business. Therefore, this paper lists the four MSP can use the block chain way, highlighting the advantages and role of the technology. Hope to give the industry some inspiration.n

nBlock chains are changing the financial world and other areas.n
nAlthough most MSPs (management service providers) have not yet begun to use block chains, they are now planning to use the technology to help them do business.n
nA block chain is a distributed database (sometimes called a distributed book) that can be publicly recorded on a block chain and stored between multiple nodes.n
nBlock chains are not owned or managed by a single institution.n
nIn addition, all the information on the block chain is transparent.n
nThe most widely known role of block chains is to support the digital currency of Bitcoin, but it also has many other applications.n
nHere are some examples of how MSPs can use block chains to provide better management services.n

nBlock Chain and MSPn
nI bet that almost no MSP has used block-chain technology in its own business.n
nHowever, MSP can benefit from this technology in several ways.n
nThese include:n
nnAccept digital currency payments based on block chains. This is the most obvious use case for block chains on MSP. MSP can not only provide customers with a new payment option, but also help customers protect their identity by accepting payment of digital currency, such as bit currency and currency. Because block-chain transactions are usually anonymous, they do not expose people’s identity.n
nnnStore user data. The reason users refuse to work with MSP is often that they need to host their own sensitive data to the MSP server. These data may be tampered with or stolen, and users can not view the data unless they have access to the MSP infrastructure – often not possible. Block chain is able to solve this problem. It allows the MSP to store user data on the block chain, where all transactions are being monitored. In this way, the block chain allows the user to trust the data when it is entrusted to the MSP. Acronis has already used this technique, and the company uses block chains to provide partial support and data protection services.n
nnnManagement contract. MSP can use block chains to manage and execute contracts with customers. The application of such a block chain is generally referred to as a smart contract, creating an automated and transparent contract that minimizes the risk of signing a contract.n
nnnSend a notification. When the service is hindered or the user requests an action, the MSP will usually notify the user by e-mail or other traditional reminder that needs to pass through the central system. The block chain provides a more efficient and reliable way to send notifications. If the MSP stores a notification on the block chain, the user can retrieve the notification information wherever it is, without relying on an e-mail server or other single point of failure. IBM also portrayed the idea of ​​using a block chain to send a secure recall notification, similar to this concept.n
nnAlthough there are few MSPs that use block chains in the above way, these use cases will become more common as the technology continues to evolve.n
