In an article published Oct. 29, the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) announced the publication of its Enterprise Ethereum Client Specification V2 document. This standard aims to improve interoperability and certification processes, which "will accelerate the adoption and implementation of Enterprise Ethereum solutions worldwide." The specification identifies the unique requirements for each application or sector to make development more fluid.
The goal of this standard is to help companies use the Ethereum network more smoothly and to connect with other applications and communities more easily.
Applications certified by the EEA are intended to be "plug and play" solutions, which means that all the approved EEA will connect perfectly.
Ron Resnick, executive director of AEA, wants the Ethereum software to be as easy as using a SIM card. "If I buy one phone in one country and one SIM card in another, I know they will work together." Continue to explain:
Using EEA specifications, Ethereum developers can write code that enables interoperability, thereby motivating business customers to select EEA-based solutions on proprietary offers … With the EEA Enterprise Ethereum Client Specification V2, companies and startups can develop interoperable offers, from low-to high-end basis, which allows companies and start-ups to easily combine and match applications at low cost, even if their needs change over time.
EEA to Devcon
The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance will present more details about this specification to this year's Devcon. Devcon, a well-known Ethereum conference, began today (October 30, 2018) in Prague, Czech Republic and takes place all week.
Devcon is the "annual meeting of the Ethereum family" as described by its guests. "At the Ethereum Foundation we host Devcon to educate and empower our community in creating decentralized applications and bringing Ethereum protocols, tools and culture to the world."
Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, launched in February 2017, "is a member-driven industry organization based on the goal of enhancing the use of Ethereum's blockchain technology as an open standard for the improvement of all industries, focused on the needs of businesses. " developers, technology vendors, startups and Fortune 500 companies. More information, including membership criteria, is available on the AEA website.
