Meeting – June 14
June 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Guest Speaker: Adrian Corona, Cloud Solutions Specialist and Technology Strategist at Microsoft
Topic: Market transformation impact of BlockChain
As a disruptive technology – Blockchain is the newest trend that enables a shared, authentic, decentralized ledger that can be public, private of a consortium of secured actions to be connected and managed effectively across enterprises.
Please join us at ATW in June for a conversation about Blockchain – What is it, How do we leverage it & Need we be afraid?
According to Don Tapscott, author of The Blockchain Revolution, “the blockchain is basically a distributed database. Think of a giant, global spreadsheet that runs on millions and millions of computers. It’s distributed. It’s open source, so anyone can change the underlying code, and they can see what’s going on. It’s truly peer to peer; it doesn’t require powerful intermediaries to authenticate or to settle transactions.
Adrian will share information on Blockchain as the foundation for the Bitcoin currency, hence why much of the original research and discussion on Blockchain was based around the financial services industry. As more understanding and the potential implication of Blockchain has evolved, it is realized that Blockchain can have a far more wide-reaching impact across many industries. Join our discussion with Adrian for an opportunity to delve deeper into aspects of Blockchain.
Blockchain is a disrupter and has impact on digital business.
