How Blockchain will influence your Business
 
If there is one word that swirls round all industries today, it’s blockchain. Rumor has it this easy to use distributed ledger technology is going to be the next huge thing after the internet, the cloud and big data. And actually even more influential. What started in the financial world with, among others, bitcoin, has the true potential to go far beyond cryptocurrencies. The decentralized Blockchain could disrupt everything we know about worldwide digital business and dealing with connected customers.
 
Get started with the basics: Identify how to deploy blockchain for your own benefits
 
Enter the blockchain: Hear about different successful business cases and get a feel how to profitably deploy the novel half public / half private database for encrypted and watertight value transfer. In this context, value can mean everything from cash money to contracts, e-commerce transactions, access control, digital rights, voting and full innovations.
 
In this Seminar, we will:
• 
look at the fundamental concepts of different blockchain technologies and concrete implementations such as Ethereum
• 
experience how blockchain evolves from a distributed ledger to a whole new confidential computing platform
• 
hear about successful use cases and derive from them the potentials for your own business
• 
get to know overall legal and security challenges arising with the use of blockchain technology
• 
take a quick look into the future: Will blockchain finally enable the spread of Life Management Platforms (LMP)?

Current and evolving Blockchain Usage Patterns [more] This presentation takes the first step to answering the question, for which business/financial scenarios Blockchain is an innovative technology! To imagine profitable business cases and discuss this seriously, we analyze Blockchain innovators in our own and in other sectors. First successful business cases of Blockchain will serve us as usage patterns, like “unforgeable digital payment”, “smart contracts”, more sophisticated ones like “Life Management Platforms” and the like. Putting the current Blockchain usages into a first generalized order, helps us adapt Blockchain to our own business scenarios and new ones. Hide
