Join us for 60 minutes

Discussion Topics:

Blockchain enthusiasm continues unabated across many organizations in multiple industry sectors. The potential is undeniable, but there is still much misunderstanding about this emerging technology. The result is significant misalignment between solution requirements and technology capabilities. Often the basis for the project is the need to solve a "CEO problem": a situation in which the CEO generates a contrived exercise for the CIO, as opposed to addressing a real business problem. Where there is a genuine business problem to be solved, often the scope and complexity of that problem exceed the current capabilities of blockchain technology. We share some hard lessons learned from enterprise blockchain projects, as well as explore the tremendous potential that the technology offers over the long term.
