Day 1 - 25 April 2019

Blockchain Platforms & Strategies

The blockchain world moves at a frantic pace of innovation, with new platforms and applications emerging weekly. While ambitious enterprises are eager to get ahead of the game and adopt its disruptive potential, choosing the correct platform and adopting a clear strategy can be a mind-field.  If you are looking to adopt it for your business, you should be aware of the platforms and then take a systematic approach to developing your strategy to incorporate this platform. Enterprise adopters face challenges with a lack of standards and inter-operability issues, especially when taking the leap from pilots and PoCs to real production-grade environments. In this track you will hear first-hand from the platform developers and companies adopting strategies needed for implementation.
