Omnitude & The Maltese Govt.
Malta is the first nation in the world to have a national strategy on blockchain technology. This progressive stance alongside Omnitude’s broad based blockchain offering is pushing the boundaries.
From A to Z
This pioneering relationship utilises Omnitude’s blockchain middleware solutions. Integrating them into the operations of the Maltese Public Transport Service to deliver a truly joined up and measurable public transport solution.
Malta is the first nation in the world to have a national strategy on blockchain technology. This progressive stance alongside Omnitude’s broad based blockchain offering is pushing the boundaries of mass adoption of blockchain in real world scenarios.
The road ahead
The relationship will move Malta’s transportation system into a future facing pro-active stance through several enabling attributes:
- Overarching visibility of regulated transport modes.
- Insight into passenger behaviour.
- Balancing of routes and systems.
- Pro-active growth prediction.
All based on data flows from GPS systems, Passenger information, Journey tracking and many other data inputs.
Currently this data is not available in a live environment, Blockchain’s distributed network allows Omnitude’s middleware solution to push, pull and merge data to create instant and trusted data flows that can be easily accessed and used.
With a growth in Tourism, changes of behaviour, demographic and usage of transport systems alongside new introductions of ferry services and other transportation systems, the transport network is entering a very dynamic stage of development.
Real time, accessible data will help optimise and shape the services into the future.
Real world advantage
Because of Omnitude’s approach towards blockchain through its middleware solutions, the Maltese Government can access the benefits of this transformative technology without needing to update its current systems and infrastructure.
”We believe in Omnitude’s blockchain technology and its broad use-cases for the Government. We can see its potential in a range of government departments and it will form a cornerstone technology platform as part of our commitment to drive forward innovation. It will improve the quality of life and enhance access to information for Maltese citizens. Blockchain technology is a key part of our overall national technology strategy that will see us transform different sectors”.
