Ultimus integrates Tierion for Blockchain Digital Process Automation

Mar 13, 2018 · 3 min read

Ultimus has integrated with Tierion to create proof of business processes in banking, healthcare, law, medical technology, government, compliance, and other industries.

Who is Ultimus?

Ultimus is a leading provider of Business Process Management (BPM) technology to thousands of organizations in over 80 countries, including some of the world’s largest companies.

What is Business Process Management software?

BPM helps companies automate business processes. For example a bank may need to process a loan application or a hospital may need to schedule patients. Companies rely on Ultimus software to automate and track these types of business processes.

How do Tierion and Ultimus work together?

Ultimus uses Tierion to create an audit trail for business processes and prove the integrity and timestamp of documents. Many organizations need to prove that digital documents and data were created before a certain time and haven’t been altered. This is particularly important for regulated businesses. Examples include:

  • loan agreements
  • purchase orders
  • reports filed with a regulatory body

This video demonstrates how Ultimus and Tierion are used to process a loan application. It includes a live demonstration of Ultimus’ BPM software.

How is the blockchain used?

Tierion’s Chainpoint technology lets software developers link data to the blockchain. This process generates a Chainpoint proof, which can be used to prove the data is linked to a point on the chain — hence the name Chainpoint.

Blockchains are notoriously slow. Bitcoin can process about four transactions per second. Ethereum can process approximately fifteen transactions per second. Chainpoint overcomes these scalability limitations by linking thousands or even millions of Chainpoint proofs to a single transaction. Chainpoint transforms the blockchain into a global proof engine.

How long did it take for Ultimus to integrate Chainpoint?

Ultimus went from concept to production in just over 30 days.
