Many enterprise blockchain service providers have made exciting advances toward helping their end users onboard more seamlessly into blockchain environments through fully managed deployment and the provision of familiar, intuitive UI and user experience.

Despite its upside for end users, abstracting technical complexity out of the deployment experience usually comes at the cost of a user's personal control over defining, refining, and managing the parameters of their own private network and/or associated node, a convenience fee that's too high for most non-end user subsets of the blockchain community, such as:

a) dApp Developers
b) Solutions Architects & Ecosystem Managers
c) Enterprise DevOps Teams

For these users, a sizeable accessibility & usability gap exists at the initial stages of network deployment, where a multitude of steps are required to complete network & node configuration, genesis file initialisation, additional tool/service integrations etc.

Some of the most commonly cited barriers associated with this arduous process include:

a) Poorly organised/disjointed, lacking, or non-existent documentation
b) Incoherence and excessive coupling of setup modules

The purpose of this ThinkTank is to harness the collective wisdom of the diverse, talented group of people in the room to discuss, ideate, and explore solutions that address the following problem statement:

"Many would-be facilitators, builders, and adopters of enterprise blockchain solutions currently struggle to navigate the complexities of initial network setup and deployment."

We welcome all HLF members who feel passionate about this topic, from technical engineers and researchers, to product owners/managers, business analysts, solutions specialists, marketers, and everyone in between!
