Overview
There is an overwhelming amount of material available on blockchain. Much of this material, however, does not take an "enterprise-first" mindset. Rather, it provides a vendor-specific view, or promises a better life by discarding our current financial systems in favor of Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies. While these perspectives are important, today's enterprises need to understand the "why" in their world. Why does blockchain make sense, why should it be considered, and why is it relevant? This book presents a practical view on blockchain for the enterprise, covering: - Overall fit and use in enterprise software architectures - Use cases, myths, and misconceptions - Associated topics such as distributed ledger technology, smart contracts, consensus, identity, security, privacy, and tokenization - Key topics to track in the future Blockchain is changing rapidly, as are the surrounding frameworks and regulations. It is easy to get lost in the maze of terms and technologies! Let this book be your guide, and enter this world armed with the knowledge needed to make your own choices and the questions to ask along the way.
