“Like any technology, it’s about how you deploy it.” – Dr. Mary Lacity
What if you could digitize uniqueness by sending one-of-a-kind originals, rather than easy-to-produce copies? It’s not just a thought: distributed ledgers, smart contracts, tokenization — these are all ways that we can take advantage of digital accountability to transfer value. But what’s the next step? With blockchain technology, it’s possible to turn a network of information into a network of value; but, that’s no easy feat. Will your organization be able to reap the benefits afforded by growing digital ecosystems? Join Ian Barkin this week on OneTAKE live as he discusses enterprise systems, blockchain technology and the future of work with Dr. Mary Lacity.
