Blockchain: Embarking on the Journey
Gain an awareness and appreciation of the Blockchain technology and its impact in the business world.
Blockchain technology is on the rise. With the technology being adopted at a rate faster than anticipated across industries - ranging from real estate, financial services to legal service - having a basic understanding of Blockchain is a must for everybody. New job roles ranging from support to development roles involving Blockchain are expected to grow as the technology becomes more widely adopted. At some point, your organisation is likely to introduce Blockchain as the new enabler to your operations or in your existing job role, and you may be required to integrate the technology into your existing ecosystem.
