Blockchain: What’s Ahead?

Be ready for the next phase of the blockchain revolution

Is there money to be made with blockchain?

Even though the initial hype surrounding blockchain, and the prolonged blockchain “winter” that followed, are beginning to settle, this is no time to rest on our laurels. IT leaders must prepare for the inevitable blockchain “spring” on the horizon, bringing with it core-enabling technologies and significant opportunities for digital business.
