Blockchain and IoT in Europe: Synergy, Challenges, and the Impact of Edge Computing
By: Radoslav Dragov, Andrea SivieroAssociate Research Director, European Customer Insights & Analysis
This IDC Market Presentation looks at the synergy that can be achieved when distributed ledger technology (DLT) and Internet of Things (IoT) are combined. This presentation not only examines why the two technologies fit so well together, but also highlights the challenges that lay ahead. Survey results identify the industries in which the two technologies are applied, and we look at the most promising use cases. We also provide an overview of real-world applications and some of the major providers of DLT–IoT services in Europe. The enormous positive impact of edge computing is examined more closely. We end by looking forward and describing the future trends that will define the DLT–IoT relationship.
