Blockchain is more than a buzzword — it is a game-changer with the potential to revolutionize business operations across industries and the replay of a blockchain webinar will expand this discussion into the ongoing impact of blockchain in the financial services sector.
Financial institutions handle multi-party business transactions daily, and many are investing heavily in blockchain. According to a World Economic Forum study, by the end of the year 80 percent of banks plan to initiate blockchain projects. And there is certainly global interest, with companies in over 24 countries currently investing in blockchain projects.
Blockchain technology significantly affects a company’s business processes, becoming part of a multi-party automated process sharing a distributed transactional hyperledger. An essential part of implementing and adopting blockchain technology is to rethink these processes and the business rules associated with them.
IBM provides a suite of products to help enable this business transformation:
IBM Blueworks Live fosters collaborative discovery and not only serves as an intuitive way to document all workflows and exceptions, but as a single source of truth for all process models.
Implementing blockchain technology requires companies to develop and implement smart contracts, which are business rules that regulate transactions occurring on the hyperledger. Read more about how to make your blockchain smart contracts smarter with business rules.
Business process management streamlines business processes within an organization where participants normally trust each other. In contrast, blockchain enables the execution of business processes across multiple organizations with unfamiliar participants. Combining business process management and blockchain technologies leads to smarter business processes.

At some point during a recent 27-hour journey to Singapore I had a realization: Singapore is long way from home and not somewhere you get to by accident from Texas. That might sound rather obvious to anyone with a map, but sometimes experience is the best teacher. The experience of getting from Texas to Singapore […]
