The Block Chain Conference is the first business and block chain-focused event to bring together the IT establishment - enterprise users and the vendors that service them - and innovative startups creating the block chain future. The goal: to accelerate the development, deployment and leverage of block chain-based approaches by global business.
In recent months, the noise related to block chain and distributed ledger technology has reached a deafening level. There's no doubt that all the leading enterprises from Wall Street to Main Street are interested in the potential for what has been cited as game changing technology.
But what is the reality of adoption, what are the opportunities across different verticals and what are the business and technology challenges to making block chain a mainstream approach?
Will block chains be embraced by enterprise IT users and vendors, just as middleware, databases, open source, cloud, mobile and web-centric approaches have?
Indeed, what makes block chains and smart contracts better than established technologies?
The enterprise IT world is quite rightly beginning to ask these questions and the answers to date have in large part been vague and self serving. It's time to deliver some clarity and honesty to the block chain debate - and that will happen at The Block Chain Conference.
