Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR A DISTRIBUTED LEDGER FOR INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY ASSET MANAGEMENT
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ POUR UN REGISTRE DISTRIBUÉ POUR LA GESTION D'ACTIFS DE TECHNOLOGIE DE L'INFORMATION
Abstract
(EN)
Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable storage media for using a distributed ledger to track and manage information technology fixture assets, such as cash registers, computers, MC40s, and electronic scales. The distributed ledger is spread among multiple devices and, as devices report new data (such as current and voltage levels), additions to the distributed ledger can be made. The distributed ledger may use blockchain technologies, and each device in the multiple device may have distinct wallets which are used to pay for maintenance requests or other actions.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des systèmes, des procédés et des supports de stockage non transitoires lisibles par ordinateur pour utiliser un registre distribué pour suivre et gérer des actifs corporels de technologie de l'information, tels que des caisses enregistreuses, des ordinateurs, des MC40 et des balances électroniques. Le registre distribué est déployé sur de multiples dispositifs et, à mesure que des dispositifs rapportent de nouvelles données (telles que des niveaux de courant et de tension), des ajouts au registre distribué peuvent être effectués. Le registre distribué peut utiliser des technologies de chaîne de blocs, et chaque dispositif parmi les multiples dispositifs peut avoir des portefeuilles distincts qui sont utilisés pour payer pour des demandes de maintenance ou d'autres actions.
