Embrace the Next Digital Disruption:  Blockchain

 

You’re probably hearing a good deal of hype these days around Blockchain and how it is the technology behind the bitcoin cryptocurrency. There are also alliances being born from this disruptive technology but is Blockchain technology something you should have on your radar?

 

The answer is an emphatic “yes.”Block-chain Expo stated that a report from Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC) named Blockchain as a ‘tech breakthrough megatrend’ for CIO’s, while Gartner has designated it one of its Top 10 Strategic Technologies for 2017.

Not only is this technology advancing rapidly, but Blockchain also offers a new way to implement transparent business transaction environments that are shared, replicated and permissioned. Blockchain provides a platform that can assist with permissioned access to private transactions with security-rich reconciliation of digital records regarding just about anything in real time. Key benefits include :

  1. Time Savings– transaction times drop from days to near instantaneous
  2. Cost Reduction– cost overheads and intermediaries are reduced or eliminated
  3. Risk Mitigation– tampering, fraud and cyber-crimes can be reduced

 

What Attendees Will Learn

  • What is Blockchain?
  • Why is it relevant for business?
  • What are use cases in Finance, Supply Chain, IoT, Digital Identities, Healthcare, and Government sectors?
  • How do strategic relationships fit into the Blockchain landscape and how are they managed to drive successful outcomes?
