COURSE SUMMARY

Each module is desgned to equip delegates with insights to understand the concepts and themes, through a step-by-step process, ‘connecting the dots’, from concept to 'real-world' applications

What you will learn

Beneath the hype and hyperbole, blockchain is finding its way into the real-world; Deutsche Bank uses blockchain in securities administration and theBank of Ireland now synthetizes data from across their Global Markets division to create an immutable, distributed, searchable repository; and Crédit Mutuel Arkéa uses a blockchain application to share and distribute customer (KYC) data among its subsidiaries.
