Starting this week in London, Jaroslav Kacina, CEO of SophiaTX takes the discussion on “The Business Possibilities of Blockchain” to the CIO Executive Summits, organized by Evanta, a Gartner company.
Gartner, a member of the S&P 500, is the world’s leading company in the research and advisory services sector. Research provided by Gartner targets CIOs, as well as senior IT marketing and supply chain leaders. Its clients include large corporations, government agencies, technology companies and the investment community.
Across the industry, the CIO role has quickly evolved from being an executive-level IT position to becoming the role of a true business leader and strategist.
Bringing the blockchain discussion to the senior IT executive level opens up a variety of insights as well as opportunities. Blockchain, as a technology enabling distributed data sharing and collaboration, is entering a stage in which many enterprises are either considering or delivering on early pilots to understand the potential impact it will have on businesses.
If implemented, blockchain technology could usher in a complete, fundamental shift in how organizations operate. It has the potential to disrupt business models, drive performance, and affect every interaction with business partners in and outside of an enterprise. It is crucial for executives to cut through the noise and embrace the impact that blockchain is quickly going to have on all levels of an organization.
In addition to the London summit, Jaroslav Kacina has been announced as a moderator for blockchain executive boardroom sessions at the Global CIO Executive Summit on August 22-24, in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, U.S., in addition to CIO Executive Summits in Boston, Toronto, and Frankfurt.
