Exclusive Master Class: Understand the potential of blockchain technology and how to unleash it
How can you cut through the hype about blockchain and focus on the value that blockchain may unlock? And what will it take to succeed with this new technology?
Although blockchain is an emerging technology, companies are already using its shared and encrypted networks in transformative ways. As blockchain becomes widely adopted, it has the potential to radically change how companies compete.
The authors from Gartner, the worldrenowned research and consulting company, will at this VIP session offer you tips and best practices for using blockchain-inspired solutions to solve problems such as supply chain inefficiency, payment latency, and fraud, as well as strategies for adopting more complete solutions as the technology spreads.
Case examples from companies such as Maersk, UEFA, DTCC, ASX, Banque de France, Renault Nissan Finance, eSports, Taipei Medical University Hospital and Ant Financial will help participants assess the challenges and risks for blockchain development and consider how they can take advantage of blockchain now, and be ready to compete in a radically reshaped competitive landscape.
The session will kick off with a brief intro on the fundamentals of blockchain, so it is not required to have any technical experience with / or deeper understanding of blockchain to participate.
