Blockchain specialist Apla is showing how blockchain can transform industries at GITEX Technology Week.

The company is exhibiting with key partners HPE and Huawei at the show, and is presenting a range of use cases that show how blockchain can be adopted for specific areas by government and enterprises.

Muhammed Arafath, Executive Director at Apla, explains: "We are evaluating a lot of government use cases to help government understand where blockchain fits in. One of the challenges we are facing is it is a new business model, so we really need to work with government and understand the integral processes, it is not a straightforward application where you understand the use case and try and fit the blockchain in,"

Arafath said that the company prefers working with its strategic partners on projects such as smart cities, to allow Apla to concentrate on the latest blockchain advances, while the partner focuses on the client and integration. This is the model the company is following with HPE, where they are working jointly on smart city concepts, and with Huawei, where it is working on smart cities and e-government cloud and logistics on blockchain.

The company is participating at GITEX for the second consecutive year, and is aiming to to inspire GITEX visitors with ideas that lead to seamless, intuitive and intelligent engagement across digital and human touch points. Use cases demonstrations on show include a solar energy grid exchange with IoT integration and shipment and logistics tracking using blockchain solutions.

"GITEX is another focal point of our efforts in the region, enabling us to showcase our latest solutions in blockchain. This year we are exploring various use cases across Smart city projects and eGovernment cloud computing initiatives, and we look forward to expanding our partnership with different technology companies in AI and IoT across different markets," Arafath says.
