At IBM InterConnect 2016, Kathryn Guarini, Vice President, Offering Management for z Systems and LinuxONE, discusses the idea of cross-industry solutions, of which Blockchain is one. Blockchain is seen as the main technological innovation of Bitcoin, since it stands as proof of all the transactions on the network. A block is the ‘current’ part of a Blockchain which records some or all of the recent transactions, and once completed goes into the Blockchain as permanent database.
Ms. Guarini introduces Donna Dillenberger, IBM Fellow, who talks about Blockchain and its impact on various industries including financial technology . Ms. Dillenberger explains why you would want to run Blockchain on IBM z Systems. For more information about IBM z Systems and Blockchain visit IBM on the web at http://www.ibm.com/blockchain/z.html
