Leveraging Blockchain To Create A Competitive Edge In The Corporate World
Anirvan Sen, Managing Director, Fifth Chrome

Despite the hype, Blockchain is still an immature technology with a market that is still nascent.  A clear recipe for success has not yet been determined so it can be hard to see exactly how you’ll get that return on investment.  In this session, using recent use-cases, we examine which Blockchain opportunities are worth pursuing.  In the short term it is obvious that it can reduce operating cost, but beyond that what transformative business models can it support?  Is it feasible at scale or do common standards need to be adopted first?  Here we will bust some common Blockchain myths and examine the six distinct categories of Blockchain use cases.



10:00am – 10:45am EDT // 14:00pm – 14:45pm GMT

Getting Started With Blockchain: Designing And Implementing A Proof-Of-Concept With JLL
Francesco Federico, EMEA Digital Director, JLL

There are a million questions to be answered once you decide to pilot Blockchain. Which stakeholders need to be involved?  What should your success criteria be? Are your processes ready for the Blockchain? What should the structure of the Blockchain be? In this session Francesco Federico, JLL talks us through JLL’s recent Blockchain trial and how they applied this innovative solution to real-estate investment.

  • JLL’s blockchain trial: Choosing the right project, building the business case and getting your partners involved 
  • What costs should you expect? 
  • Timelines and benefits 
  • Preparing cross-functionally for the Blockchain: Who needs to be involved? 



12:00pm – 12:45pm EDT // 16:00pm – 16:45pm GMT

Blockchain For Payment Clearance, Payment Contract And Procure-To-Pay
Binu Surendranath, Global Process Owner, Finance Payout, Microsoft
Cassidy Boales, Director of Finance Operations, McKesson

The payments process is notoriously filled with manual paper work, long delays as the documents pass between parties and is prone to error, thus its one of the areas where Blockchain can have the biggest impact!  Using Blockchain in your payments can help speed up the P2P process, resulting in better liquidity, more secure payments and even the ability to negotiate early payment discounts.

  • Understanding how Blockchain can change your payments process
  • Considering cross-boarder payments
  • Getting your 3rd parties onboard
  • How does the Blockchain interact with your existing software?

09:00am – 09:45am EDT // 13:00pm – 13:45pm GMT

Blockchain for KYC and Identity Management

Blockchain can be used to create a platform that protects individuals’ identities from theft and massively reduces fraudulent activities.  It can also help businesses handle issues of authentication and reconciliation more securely.  Additionally it may allow individuals the ability to create encrypted digital identities that will replace multiple usernames and passwords which can be forgotten or lost. Sounds great! This session details how you can use decentralized Blockchain to create digital IDs and ascertain the truth of individual identity for both your employees and customers.
