Event Details


Exploring the Business Potential

Blockchain has been hailed as the most important technology since the Internet itself. Yet, "what it is, how does it work, and what are the benefits?" This talk will overview what Blockchain is and why there is so much excitement around it. We will discuss the technologies, options, issues, and future of this important technology 

Blockchain is a way of providing trust between parties without the standard intermediaries such as government, bank or business and could transform the way transactions are done. According to Gartner, Blockchain has the potential to affect every vertical.

Use cases in finance, healthcare, and supply chain will be discussed. This talk will prepare you to understand possible pilot opportunities within your organization and to provide business analysis support for them.

Key Point: An emerging technology with the potential to affect all industries.
