EY today announced the launch of the second generation of EY Blockchain Analyzer, a blockchain analytics tool, at the annual EY Global Blockchain Summit. The summit convenes more than 200 executives, analysts and EY clients to offer a first-time demo of the full EY blockchain solutions suite and provide a comprehensive view of the state of the technology’s integration across industries.

Over the past two years, EY Blockchain Analyzer has undergone significant developments as part of a multimillion-dollar investment and is expected to be available for use by EY client-serving teams in 2019 across a selection of more than 100 EY Assurance clients that hold or trade cryptocurrencies or operate in the blockchain ecosystem. These developments include the support of multiple new cryptocurrencies on the platform, added functionality relevant to private and public blockchains, and a globally accessible and available platform.

The first generation of the EY Blockchain Analyzer was designed to facilitate EY audit teams in gathering an organization’s entire transaction data from multiple blockchain ledgers, to reconcile that data to EY clients’ books and records and to perform enhanced analytics, including trend analysis and identification of outliers.

Through this major upgrade, a version of this second generation EY Blockchain Analyzer is available for EY teams and non-audit clients as a business application that is accessible anytime and helps enable financial reporting, forensic investigations, transaction monitoring and tax calculations, to support EY teams and clients globally across Advisory, Tax and Transaction Advisory Services.

Paul Brody, EY Global Innovation Leader, Blockchain, says:

“With the second generation of EY Blockchain Analyzer, we are building a true platform solution that can be used for multiple purposes such as audit, tax and transaction monitoring, depending on client needs.  From the start, we have had technologists and audit practitioners working together on this platform so we can keep our technology and audit methodology aligned and meet our professional standards.”

The latest version of EY Blockchain Analyzer being showcased at the EY Global Blockchain Summit supports analysis of zero-knowledge proof (ZKP) private transactions on the public Ethereum blockchain, as well as the Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic and Litecoin public blockchains. EY Blockchain Analyzer also supports private Ethereum, Quorum and Hyperledger blockchains.

Felice Persico, EY Global Vice Chair – Assurance, says:

“As technologies continue to evolve, so too does the need to integrate transformative capabilities into our audit tools. The second generation of EY Blockchain Analyzer will provide valuable evidence for audits in various sectors.”

In addition to transaction analysis, the new version of EY Blockchain Analyzer will support tax calculation for crypto-assets. Leveraging the insights and assets acquired with the Andy Crypto-Asset Accounting and Tax (AndyCAAT) tool in 2018 for better visibility into cryptocurrency transactions and inventory, the newest version of this technology can automatically calculate capital gains and losses on transactions in compliance with US tax law.

Kate Barton, EY Global Vice Chair – Tax, says:

“Integrating the prior acquisition of AndyCAAT into the global EY network for tax services exemplifies our commitment to digital innovation in the tax area. We are committed to providing clients with seamless one-stop solutions from transaction monitoring and security to tax calculation. With EY Blockchain Analyzer, we are delivering on that vision.”

EY will gradually expand the geographic coverage for tax calculation globally after the 2019 tax year. EY engagement teams have served more than 100 clients using AndyCAAT to help calculate their taxes this year and, from next year, the tax functionality within EY Blockchain Analyzer will be available to all EY Tax practitioners.

In addition to the second generation of EY Blockchain Analyzer, EY has announced a suite of blockchain solutions and upgrades at the EY Global Blockchain Summit, including the release of the first generation of EY Ops Chain Public Edition into the public domain, as well as the launch of EY Smart Contract Analyzer and the second generation of EY Ops Chain.

Position sensor for ICE vehicles is the fastest growing segment during the forecast period

Position sensor plays an important role in understanding the operations of vehicle powertrain and identifying facult, if any, in the engine. Vehicle efficiency can be measured and analyzed with the help of signals coming from position sensors installed inside the vehicle powertrain. Apart from installation in the camshaft and crankshaft assemblies, position sensors are being installed in gearbox assembly to measure the data related to the position of gears and gear shifters. Increasing adoption of position sensors in vehicle powertrains is the main factor driving the market segment.

Heavy-duty vehicle is expected to be the fastest growing segment

Heavy-duty vehicles include trucks and buses. Trucks and buses are being installed with advanced powertrain sensors with the upgrading of powertrains. Powertrains in heavy-duty vehicles have to be powerful enough to survive robust conditions. As a result of that, they are required to be installed with sensors that offer high operational efficiency. The market for heavy-duty vehicles in developing countries is flourishing day-by-day. These are a few of the factors contributing to the growth of the heavy-duty vehicle market for powertrain sensors.

ARISTOTELES Sky by Kaiserwetter is Emerging as the Ideal Platform for Managing and Matching Energy Generation and Demand at the National Level

Published

The end of the Sustainable Innovation Forum was marked on December 12th, a COP25 event that brought together over the course of two days the main multilateral organizations, investors and innovators from the private sector, as well as ministers from various countries. Key governmental actors included Carlos Manuel Rodríguez, Minister of the Environment and Energy of Costa RicaIan Duncan, member of the House of Lords from the Government of the United Kingdom, Ola Elvestuen, Minister of Climate and Environment of Norway, and Yasmine Fouad, Minister of the Environment of the Arab Republic of Egypt. This morning, representatives of the Government of Chile, co-organizer of the COP, as well as the Former President of ChileRicardo Lagos, have also joined the forum.

In this context, there has been debate about the needs of different countries to face the current climate crisis, as well as the inevitable energy transition towards renewables and how this works in the wider picture of governmental commitments to a transition based on technological innovation. During the panel “Transitioning Towards a Cleaner, Smarter Energy System of the Future,” this topic was studied in depth, and common conclusions were reached, such as that in order to achieve the objectives set in the COP and the Paris Agreement, it is necessary to enact a more flexible energy system for different governments in their capacity to integrate intermittent renewable energies and other decentralized energy sources. This change requires new business models, regulations and policy frameworks to drive a safe and profitable transition in each region independently. Under this premise, the SAP partner company in IoT and Data Intelligence, Kaiserwetter, has presented in the framework of this forum, the possibility of a new era of effective climate governance for countries, with the presentation of its patented Energy Cloud for Nations, ARISTOTELES Sky.

Hanno Schoklitsch, CEO and founder of Kaiserwetter has stressed the importance of “attracting capital towards the energy transition, not only in industrialized but also in emerging countries, and doing so using the Internet of things and Artificial Intelligence, combined with Machine Learning to create transparency.” With the launch of its new B2G platform The Energy Cloud for Nations “we are creating a more sustainable future by offering a new level of data transparency in the energy market,” which Hanno Schoklitsch says is “essential to achieving the Paris goals, as ARISTOTELES Sky helps governments and authorities cope with the increasing complexity inherent in the energy transition. Action must be taken to accelerate the energy transition now, not only from the private sector, but also from governments, and there is already a way to do this.”
