The events of the last 12-18 months have accelerated the adoption and deployment of blockchain and related technologies by organizations that see new urgency in digitizing key processes and transactions. This is bringing a diverse mix of companies into the enterprise blockchain space looking to manage everything from strained supply chains to clinical trial data and deliver a range of solutions supporting new financial infrastructures, payment models, logistics systems and even vaccine/travel credentials.

As the general manager for Blockchain, Healthcare and Identity at the Linux Foundation, Brian Behlendorf is front and center with technology and end user organizations that are leveraging blockchain across a number of industries. In this session, he will cover the market shift from proving the value of blockchain to meeting the challenges of deploying production networks, drawing from current deployments of Hyperledger technologies. He will also discuss the technology and business drivers shaping the next chapter for enterprise blockchain.

Keys topics will include

- Core requirements for production networks that scale, including transparency, interoperability, standards and componentization
- New technologies that are key to cross chain and off chain operations
- Examples of the growing range of new applications, from digital identity solutions to CBDCs, that are being built atop Hyperledger’s distributed ledger platforms
