Blockchain is an emerging technology that brings trust and distributed processing to business networks as they evolve into wider, semi-permeable, collaborative ecosystems. It can drive efficiencies through disintermediation, and potentially re-imagining the way that business processes are.
IDC's European Blockchain Strategies Continuous Intelligence Service (CIS) focuses on the impact that blockchain and distributed ledger technologies have in enterprise settings across all industry verticals throughout Europe. It evaluates use cases (exploring wider technology and business implications); highlights opportunities and challenges for individual organizations and the ecosystems they inhabit; and provides advice around development, deployment and delivery of value with blockchain-related technologies. Our research helps enterprise customers better understand what blockchain means for their organization and its customers, partners, competitors; and helps technology and service providers develop new solutions, sales messaging, and go-to-market strategies.
