Blockchain Technology: A 360° Business Transformation

Although being a relatively new form of innovation, the blockchain technology is generating significant interest across a wide range of industries. With the technology first being popularised through the emergence of Bitcoin, many industries are starting to take advantage of the major benefits it provides in simplifying their business processes and providing easier access to information across a singular shared platform. Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) offers significant and scalable processing power, high accuracy rates, and apparently unbreakable security at a significantly reduced cost compared to the traditional systems. The functions of blockchain technology have now expanded into the transportation, supply chain, manufacturing and logistics sectors to provide greater transparency to customers and vendors. With a decentralised and 'permissionless' system, transactions can be done at a much quicker pace allow customers and organisations to track their product in a more efficient manner.

With blockchain, it is all about the practicality of the technology. The content of the training will primarily cover the fundamental understanding of the blockchain concept, how the database management differs from cloud-based solutions and what applicability users can enjoy, including the benefits and the challenges using blockchain solutions. Focus areas will include:

-          A brief history and development of blockchain

-          Introduction to the various platforms and their strengths

-          Current status of the technology: What are the core drivers?

-          Applicable solutions which include case studies:- Maersk - IBM - K&N / APL / Accenture

-          Proven benefits of blockchain solutions: What does the future hold?

-          Tie in with other developments including Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI): How would it all add up supporting the blockchain-based solution? How could solutions directly benefit the participants' organisation?
