Get Up-to-Speed on Blockchain at Data Summit 2018

Blockchain may be the best thing to happen to data management and information security or just the latest tech fad, depending on your point of view. To help IT professionals get up-to-speed, Data Summit 2018 will present a number of sessions on the distributed ledger technology. Data Summit 2018 will take place this year at the Hyatt Regency Boston, May 22-23, with pre-conference workshops on Monday, May 21. Cognitive Computing Summit will also be co-located at the event.

On Wednesday, May 23, at 3 pm, Gurdeep Kalra, principal consultant with Infosys, will also present a session titled “Blockchain 101 with Oracle Cloud,” and explain how blockchain can support real time secure transactions and regulatory compliance, while helping to reduce operations cost and fraud.

In addition, Data Summit will offer an “Introduction To Blockchain” workshop on Monday, May 21, at 1:30 pm. Known as the underlying technology for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, blockchain technology transcends that narrow niche and can benefit government and corporate transactions as well. This workshop will cover the basics.
