Blockchain in the IT Enterprise Webinar Series
Blockchain as an Enterprise Technology Powering Real Business.
Why a Webinar Series?
Blockchain is a global industry and those leading its evolution from PoC to pilots and full production can be found in Silicon Valley, New York City, London, Switzerland, China, Singapore and Australia. And all points in between. Rather than settle on an arbitrary host city, we think that webinars are the way to go in order to get maximum engagement.
A series of webinars makes sense too - beginning with some broader themes at introductory level and then following up with deeper dives based on feedback from our audience.
Blockchain is Enterprise IT
As companies move from proof-of-concepts to pilots of blockchain and distributed ledger-based applications, corporate IT best practices, approaches and standards - as well as people - will play a vital role in ensuring the success of those pilots and the more widespread enterprise deployment of these technologies.
While PoCs can be rapidly spun up on public cloud platforms by innovation lab developers looking to test discrete functionality and user interfaces, pilots will need to run in corporate datacenter environments where application manageability, scalability and security are paramount. Integration with existing enterprise applications, database and middleware platforms, as well as with private and hybrid cloud offerings will be key, while container technologies and DevOps principles and best practices will likely be applied. Architectures like micro-services and serverless will also be highly relevant.
Essentially, when it underpins mainstream business applications, blockchain technology will need to function just like other enterprise IT. Operations professionals will consider it no differently to the operating system, database and middleware systems that they also manage, often on a 24/7 basis. The webinar series will focus on blockchain as enterprise IT, and how companies and vendors need to address this reality.
Blockchain Powers Real Business Applications
Blockchain, distributed ledger and smart contract technology will underpin new applications across a number of business verticals and lines of business. The webinar series will highlight a number of these areas where these technologies are demonstrating the potential for benefit and change. Expect to hear about e-government, finance, healthcare and supply chain applications, as well as blockchain-enabled identity, document management and security use cases.
