Individuals, responsibilities, different objectives.
Equip the client to compare and contrast options
Client quote: With all the new blockchain talk and proofs of concept, it’s so confusing for tech execs to make decisions around these technologies. We can’t keep up with pipeline of new options, it just makes even more confusion. We don’t see a safe ‘buy XYZ’ option. Should we wait and see? Or do you see serious blockchain adoption in planning horizon
This is a dynamic workshop discussion with the client, who will bring to the session their real-life problems and candidate applications, which we will refine and prepare for technology evaluation.
