Topic: Blockchain: Business Challenges, Solutions, Difficulties in Selling It Internally, and More!
Time: 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Blockchain technologies, invented back in the 1980s, can change everything.

Instead of layers of external security built around data, blockchain addresses security in a different way. This fundamentally opens up many possibilities because information could be on sites that cannot be fully trusted or loosely protected.

Hear from Ramesh Babu, Wipro on how others have used this emerging and disruptive technology in their own organizations: the business challenge they had, what solutions they considered, why they selected what they did, the challenges of “selling” it internally, and the business outcomes. 
Blockchain, is not just the technological backbone of Bitcoin, it is a deceptively powerful technology capable of much more than just supporting a virtual monetary system. Experts are extremely enthusiastic about what it can do.
But what can it do, and what is it?
To put it simply, a blockchain is an automated ledger system that provides immutability on information, establishes transparency, and prevents control regimes.
So how important is blockchain to the future of information exchange?
To put it mildly, it’s responsible for recording every transaction ever made in bitcoin, and blockchain is aimed at accomplishing this for everything that becomes digital.
