October 2019 Chapter Meeting

Blockchain in the Context of Data Governance

Speaker: Frank Coker, Finance & Blockchain Professor, University of Washington iSchool

Tuesday, October 8th

Blockchain technology is a game changer. It is going to impact the global economy and change the way companies and individuals share important data. It is a game changer for Data Governance. It is becoming known as the “trust layer” in systems architecture. Blockchain is the underlying technology that enables cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and is becoming a new area of focus for banks, stock exchanges and global supply chains. But an even bigger impact is occurring as blockchain moves into broader forms of data tracking in areas such as contracts, deeds, intellectual property, music, aircraft assemblies, drugs, agriculture and much more. Blockchain technology is still in its infancy but is already eliminating transaction processing jobs while creating many new jobs that require the intersection of technology, information management  and data governance skills. Understanding how blockchain works and how it is evolving will become increasingly

This presentation will review:
