    Most people have heard of Bitcoin, and they know that blockchain is one of the underlying concepts behind this cryptocurrency. Blockchain is an emerging technology that is receiving a lot of interest—and hype—across enterprises and among analysts. But what does blockchain technology mean for the broader enterprise? It has the potential to greatly disrupt a large number of business processes across various verticals, far beyond Bitcoin. How can blockchain technologies be applied in different verticals, and what does this mean for traditional database-centric approaches? Join this session to learn about blockchain, associated concepts such as smart contracts, and how these technologies may be applied in various use cases and verticals.
