Blockchain Reality Check
BC-01
Over the past two years, we have seen hype around blockchain grow, with many claiming it to have the potential to disrupt nearly every industry. Many technology firms have taken leadership roles in advancing blockchain, and even more smaller companies and startups have jumped on the bandwagon, looking to be part of the next tech bubble. But, widescale implementation has yet to emerge. Where does the blockchain and DLT market stand, what projects are succeeding (and which are not), and what is keeping it from evolving more rapidly?

Not All Blockchains Are the Same
BC-04
Blockchain has come a long way since the cryptocurrency spike that brought the technology to the world’s attention. Part of the success is the evolution of the technology itself. This session will discuss the changes that are making blockchain helping drive innovation with blockchain and putting blockchain on more roadmaps than ever. Is difference between permissioned and permissionless blockchain? What’s the difference between different distributed ledger technologies and how do they impact developers? Is Blockchain as a Service a realistic option?

Making Tokenization Work for Business
BC-05
Anyone who has used Google Pay, Apple Pay, Amazon’s one-click shopping, or other similar transaction systems has or other similar transaction systems, has been exposed to tokenization. It represents a means of replacing traditional transactions by replacing sensitive information with a token that is unique to each customer or transaction. This session will explore the growth of tokenization and how businesses can apply the technology to tokenize assets on blockchains to reduce risk, increase security, and build new business models.

Unlocking Blockchain's Value for Enterprise Security
BC-11
We spend Trillions of dollars on cybersecurity solutions meant to keep outside prying eyes from accessing our sensitive data. But, rarely do we fight the internal cybersecurity battle: making sure that our data has not been manipulated, replaced, or falsified by a company or its employees. In many cases, we have come to simply trust that the data is correct by methods like private keys and user permissions. This session will discuss: Why blockchain can be instrumental in bringing an unprecedented level of trust to the data enterprises use on a daily basis; implementation methods of blockchain into traditional enterprise stacks; real-world uses cases; and a vision for a new internet that is shared, accessed, and trusted.

Can Your Blockchain Projects Work with Your Legacy Applications?
BC-12
Blockchain gives enterprises an opportunity to evolve their processes and operations, running them over distributed ledgers to gain efficiency, security, and cost benefits. But, most companies have existing investments in legacy applications and databases that are part of their operations. What do businesses leaders and blockchain developers need to know about integrating their blockchain projects into their legacy infrastructures? Do they need to worry about it, or can their existing applications continue handling the tasks for which they were designed?

Your DLT project from concept to rollout
BC-13
As much as some distributed ledger projects have seen early success, many more have stalled, failed, or simply have not made it past initial strategy and planning phases. The truth is, it’s not a plug and play technology, and while it may create a path for better business models, it’s not likely to be a quick fix. It will take time, the right expertise and relationships, and a proper project plan. This panel will teach attendees how take their projects from concept to reality, from initial planning and buy-in to development, rollout and adoption.
