[KAIZEN] An introduction to KAIZEN Management System
Today, we are pleased to introduce our KAIZEN management system. This will be a platform for developers to manage various decentralized technologies and implement into the dApps they are building. In this article, we will be introducing the platform, including its background, functions and the supported features.
Motivation and Background
When developing a decentralized application, one of the most common way to start is to follow and read Github for instruction and commands. However, difference in environment and the version of certain tools, missing library and etc. can often makes the process time consuming and even lead to failure in setting up a developer environment.
To solve such problem, KAIZEN Management System provides developers a default workable environment (docker environment that has all the requirement) that empowers them to deploy and develop decentralized applications. By integrating scattered technologies into one place, we will provide 7 features to choose :
1. Blockchain (required)
Blockchain is like an operating system in the decentralized network. It is a technology that allows digital information to be distributed, but not copied or changed. Currently, there are several blockchains in the market, including Bitcoin, which is often referred as the “digital gold”, Ethereum that supports smart contract calculation, ICON that utilizes Loopchain as their backbone technology, and many more.
2. Decentralized Storage
Decentralized Storage is where hypermedia and data can be stored. By storing users file in a decentralized network, they don’t have to reply on large, centralized silos of data that can restrict them from having full control over their information and privacy. Currently, there are several decentralized storage such as IPFS, Storj, Swarm and so on.
3. Decentralized CDN
Decentralized CDN (Content Delivery Network) utilizes spare bandwidth capacity within the decentralized network, such as household computers, router, data center, and works as a worldwide distributed caching layer to provide a fast, and secure Internet performance. Currently, there are several decentralized CDN such as Noia Network, VTOS, Gladius and so on.
4. Decentralized Computing Power
Decentralized computing power, also known as decentralized cloud platforms, creates a virtual space where anyone can access flexible, reliable, and cheap source of computing power. Currently, there are several decentralized computing power such as Golem, SONM, Perlin and so on.
5. Decentralized Transmission
Decentralized transmission will allow nodes in the decentralized network to communicate and relay data or message to the designated client. Through peer to peer method, it will allow users to communicate more efficiently and with less cost. Currently, NKN provides a network that supports decentralized transmission.
6. State Channel
State channel provides an off-chain solution for scaling. Instead of relying everything on a blockchain such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, or NEO, it shifts some of the responsibilities to the client side code, allowing faster, cheaper yet secure way for payment. Currently, there are several state channels such as Lightning Network, Raiden Network, Trinity and so on.
Oracle allows external data to be exposed for on-chain usage. By fetching datas like weather, winner of NFL, token prices and more, oracle makes smart contracts more useful. Currently, Oraclize, Argur, Gnosis and so on.
The design behind KAIZEN management system is to create a straightforward platform for the developers. We want to guide developers to choose the right tools for anything they are building, and at the same time, make the service flexible for anyone to adjust according to their needs.
We will release more details regarding the service in our future updates, so stay tuned!
