20 July 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. Computers played a huge part in getting the Apollo 11 crew to the moon and back. In 1969, most computers were huge pieces of machinery that entire rooms were dedicated to housing. At a time where microprocessors didn’t exists, engineers had to […]

The future promises dramatic transformations in the way people make and consume energy. Many experts are turning to microgrids— small-scale, self-sustaining power networks unburdened by ties to a centralized power plant— as key agents of this transformation. Microgrids provide everything from greater reliability and resilience to cleaner power and economic development. They’re designed to work […]
With the constant growth of connected devices, as well as persistent phone and tablet use, traditional centralized networks may soon be overwhelmed with traffic. Gartner predicts that 25 billion connected devices will generate unprecedented amounts of raw data by 2021. This problem will demand next-level responsiveness and reliability— and it’s just two years away. Edge […]
Connected devices are transforming the world in ways we could barely have imagined just a few decades ago. The Internet of Things (IoT) is already changing industries and lives around the world. The following are just four industries that are experiencing this transformation: Agriculture: IoT tractors are helping farmers increase productivity and decrease costs. These […]
Fitness wearables have the ability to monitor heartbeats, steps, and the calories you are burning. Earbuds have come a long way, providing excellent sound, reasonable battery life, and Bluetooth capability. But now the two are coming together to become “hearables,” smart headphones that help monitor your health. The ear is becoming the go-to place to […]
In the healthcare arena, the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT). It’s doing lots of good in the world by improving care and delivering it to more people. Any place becomes a point of care, not just within the four walls of a healthcare facility. This means care is accessible […]
Blockchain is helping reshape industries in domains as varied as finance, healthcare, energy, supply chain and Internet of Things (IoT). As the technology continues to evolve, engineers moving into management roles are expected to be up to speed with market developments.

Primary Discussion Topics
- Technical differentiation, benefits and uniqueness of the blockchain, with an emphasis on incremental implementation.
- Developments by the big cloud providers, and the advantages and limitations of traditional databases versus blockchain systems.
- Blockchain as the Internet of Value, including digitizing real assets, digital asset trading, agreements and smart contract deployments.
Upon successful completion of both sessions, attendees will be able to:
- Discern how blockchain is different from other similar technologies and what its unique advantages can provide.
- Identify how blockchain applies to certain business use cases, and why that matters.
- Explain recent enterprise-level innovations powered by blockchain, including use cases in supply chain, power and energy energy, finance and healthcare.
- Recognize where the technology is going next, and ways to stay ahead of curve.
Virtual Event Attendance Benefits
- Explore how blockchain technology can be used to solve problems and create real value for enterprises.
- Review case examples of implementations of blockchain–both in development and in-use–that highlight how businesses incorporate blockchain into their organizational strategies.
- Receive industry-leading knowledge and insights to help make the most informed decisions about blockchain-dependent businesses and operations.
