What is it? And why should we care?

A Fireside Chat with
Emily Cagen,
Deloitte Consulting

Virtual Networking and Fireside Chat

For a few years now, we’ve been hearing about Blockchain.  But what is it?  What are the benefits to supply chain application? Could it benefit my company? What real world personal applications could be beneficial, if it's not realistic to apply it in my business?

 Before we get all fired up, wouldn’t it be nice to get some basic understanding of what it is and what it means to us? 

On January 21, we sit down with Emily Cagen, who has done extensive research in blockchain.  She’ll help us understand various applications and answer questions about why we should strive to champion blockchain technology, with a start to determine the value it brings an organization prior to implementation.
