A Top Down look at Blockchain - the Federal Perspective
11:15am - 12:15pmMonday, February 11
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
Decision makers at all levels of government are bombarded with new technologies, but in the end, nobody buys technology, they buy solutions. This session takes a look at decision making processes, with a focus on what makes a new idea stand out, and how a technology can become part of the design guidelines that can have far-reaching implications on how we tackle the big problems facing our country today. Using blockchain as a case study, our keynote speaker will explore how technology becomes part of the discussion in government, what lessons have past technologies taught us, and how does he sees this particular technology impacting micro-services and data layers. As we look forward, this session will consider how the public and private sectors can work together to ensure that the best solutions become a part of the available solution set.
