Blockchain For Business



Blockchain technology offers the potential to increase transparency, accelerate transactions, lower transaction costs and enable trust in business relationships. However, adoption rates show that the technology is still in its very early stages of development, similar to the Internet of the late 90s. Companies are rushing to understand how to implement it and use it to create value, but as in the early days of the Internet, a major barrier to adoption is understanding how the technology works, and what are its use cases.

This course will focus on grasping the unique value proposition of blockchain technology, to give leaders the tools to understand the specific situations where blockchain can add value to business processes. Participants will learn the principal technological components of blockchain technology, the different characteristics and use cases of public and private blockchains, as well as resource requirements to implement blockchain successfully. A comprehensive study of today’s business use cases will be conducted, both in Canada and globally, to understand how blockchain technology is already being used to deliver value to businesses. Understanding the different protocols and tools that are in use, and their strengths is key to choosing the ones that fit that a particular use case. Exist. We will look at both successful case studies and unsuccessful ones, to help leaders avoid some of the common mistakes made by early adopters.
