Break

2:30pm - 2:50pm

Blockchain...Fad or Future?

There’s a lot of hype in the air about blockchain technology at the moment. A World Economic Forum report predicts that by 2025, 10 percent of GDP will be stored on blockchains or blockchain-related technology. Hype phase aside, knowing what blockchain and its variants are, and are not, is a question that must be addressed. Why such hype and why are distributed, decentralized ledgers so important? Michael Terpin, CEO from Transform Group, shares his view on blockchain technologies and its implications in commerce.

2:50pm - 3:40pm

Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT): Blockchain’s Evolution or Revolution?

Algorithms enabling the creation of distributed ledgers are powerful, disruptive innovations that could transform the global economy where trust is established through consensus and distributed computing, potentially removing costly intermediaries. This executive panel featuring Transform Group, Microsoft, IBM, and Mojix will review real-world examples where DLTs are used in commerce, outside of supporting crypto currencies, and explain how this technology is evolving into emerging variations that will drive innovation and adoption in the retail, manufacturing, supply chain world.

4:00pm - 5:00pm

General Session Keynote

Jim McKelvey, Co-Founder of Square, will share his Silicon Valley approach to problem solving, innovation, and a concept he calls “unlearning.” Attendees will understand how success in business today means relinquishing old rules and behaviors and how learning agility can drive success in an uncertain, unpredictable, and constantly evolving business environment.
