The capability to connect to the blockchain discussion at a senior IT executive level provides a variety of insights as well as opportunities. Blockchain, as a technology enabling distributed data sharing and collaboration, is entering a stage where many enterprises are either considering or delivering on early pilots to understand the potential impact on businesses.
The CIO role is quickly evolving from one of being the executive level IT person to a true business leader and strategist. Blockchain is the technology, that if implemented, could involve a complete shift in how organizations fundamentally operate. It has the potential to disrupt business models, drive performance, and affect every interaction with business partners in and outside of an enterprise. It is crucial for executives to cut through the noise and embrace the impact that blockchain is quickly going to have on the entire organization.
