Getting started using the Enterprise File Fabric with BlockChain for Secure Governance and Compliance of Company Files

The purpose of this post is to outline how the Enterprise File Fabric can be used with a BlockChain HyperLedger solution to provide guaranteed non tamper audit reports for the corporate file estate.
