With the EEA Enterprise Ethereum Client Specification V2, enterprises and startups can develop interoperable offerings, from low-to high-end based, enabling enterprises and startups to easily mix and match applications cost-effectively, even as their needs change over time.”[/perfectpullquote]
The Specification is the result of months of intense collaboration between leading enterprise, technology and platform members within the EEA’s Technical Committee and EEA Special Interest Groups (SIGs). The Specification is working towards inclusion in future releases of application-specific profiles – subsets tailored for different uses cases that paves the way for innovation across vertical industries where enterprise can identify specific requirements relevant to their industry. The Specification incorporates components developed by the Ethereum Foundation and is supported by broadest Ethereum developer user bases worldwide.

We hope that the work of the EEA and its member organizations can bring about meaningful and innovative change across the various industries participating in the Alliance. Ethereum itself is a platform that can profoundly benefit both the public and private sectors with the help of the brightest minds in technology, finance, and other spaces. We look forward to seeing how industries and organizations can utilize Ethereum to bring transformative solutions to life.”[/perfectpullquote]
EEA to Present on Roadmap and Vision at Devcon4
As an Olympic Sponsor at the Ethereum Foundation’s flagship developer conference, Devcon4, Oct. 30 – Nov. 2, 2018, at the Prague Congress Center, the EEA will hold a notable round of Devcon activities including presentations and interactive booth discussions on the new Specifications, coming innovations, certification program, and real-world use cases. EEA Executive Director Ron Resnick will present on the EEA technical roadmap and Enterprise Ethereum market opportunities. EEA Technical Standards Working Group Chair, Conor Svensson, founder, and CEO of BLK.IO, will lead an interactive breakout session titled “How Can the EEA Interoperate with the Public Ethereum Chain EIP Process?” Following Devcon, attendees are invited to an EEA-sponsored Meet-Up to meet with the EEA’s Svensson and Resnick to discuss EEA’s vision and roadmap.

EEA Momentum and Roadmap
With over 500 organizations as members, the EEA anticipate continuous momentum as members work with the global development community to build, test and certify solutions to grow the ecosystem. The EEA will introduce a TestNet to assure interoperability across member solutions. Also, the EEA will oversee a members-only Certification Program that ensures solutions conform and interoperate with the standard, building confidence in an offering’s performance.
