Blockchain (a shared, immutable ledger for recording transactions, tracking assets and building trust) first caught the world's attention when it appeared as a platform for securely and efficiently sharing cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin among anonymous users on public networks.
Today, the technology is generating intense interest for use in a variety of industries and domains ranging from banking, finance, and insurance to healthcare, government, IoT, supply-chain, retail, real-estate, manufacturing and many others..
Organizations are now using Blockchain technology to develop a new breed of transactional business applications designed to embed trust, transparency, efficiency, and accountability into the process of sharing and transferring a broad range of assets in a business network. Business Blockchains are not just limited to currencies; assets ranging from equipment, warranties, and artwork to healthcare records and shipping data can now be shared, exchanged, or transferred via a Blockchain network more efficiently, with greater collaboration and less risk to shareholders, than is customary using traditional practices.
But what is the status of Blockchain efforts within organizations and what are their plans for developing Blockchains in the near future?
What do organizations see as the potential for Blockchains to disrupt their industry?
And what issues do organizations see as hampering their efforts to use Blockchain technology?
To answer these and other questions, we are conducting a confidential survey on how organizations are adopting—or planning to adopt—Blockchain technology. We also seek to identify important issues and other considerations organizations are encountering or foresee encountering in their efforts.
Please be assured that all answers will be kept confidential.
