Description

Blockchain technologies are transformational: they can enable enterprises to reinvent processes and business models, and pursue radically disruptive use cases. Many decision-makers and IT professionals don’t understand blockchain; others confuse it with cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. This concise, accessible handbook brings clarity and pragmatism to blockchain technologies and opportunities. Written from a business perspective by three of IBM’s leading consultants, it presents real-world examples that demonstrate what blockchain can and can’t do. Drawing on their unsurpassed experience, the authors survey the technology’s current state, introduce industry-specific and cross-industry use cases, review approaches to implementation and governance, and preview emerging capabilities -- all with a relentless focus on real business outcomes, and no hype.


"I will never be able to adequately express how useful this book will be to my class. In addition to the great chapters on cybersecurity, I loved the Integration Models, especially 'Coexistence with Systems of Record.' Legacy integration with Blockchain is a critical barrier, and you nailed it!"
 - Thomas Doty, JD, LLM - Adjunct Professor, University of New Hampshire Law
