Learn how smart enterprises are using blockchain to unlock new business opportunities

Blockchain technologies have already proved to be a game-changer for new business opportunities. That is why smart business leaders everywhere are ‘doing the blockchainification’. Blockchainification is the process of gradually introducing this powerful technology into your enterprise solutions.

If you want to learn how blockchain technology can revolutionise enterprises' data sharing and collaboration, and how your business can benefit from ‘blockchainification’, join the 'Blockchain for the Decision Maker' course.

What you will gain

Developed in partnership with the renowned Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME), this course teaches you to evaluate and introduce blockchain-based solutions into your enterprise systems. The course kicks-off with a deep dive into blockchain essentials and by taking an in-depth look at which services are best positioned for blockchainification. Further, the course uses a combination of face-to-face training, group activities, and hands-on exercises to cover an array of specific blockchain solutions, processes, and concepts, including: 

  • Blockchain-based distributed ledger
  • Business application patterns
  • The Hyperledger ecosystem
  • Blockchainification and business process-driven transitions
  • Blockchain integration and outlook
  • Benefits and risks of using cloud-based blockchain-as-a-service options
  • Integrating existing services into a blockchain platform

One of the course’s most popular components is the ‘bring your own problem’ session. This is a unique opportunity to apply blockchain proof-of-concept applications to the types of challenges you face every day.

Your transformation

You will leave the training having a comprehensive understanding of the full potential of blockchain technology and how to leverage that potential in an enterprise setting. And moreover, you’ll have the confidence to begin using blockchain technologies to solve actual problems and create new business opportunities.

Gábor Nyul"At my company, we are trying to build a blockchain-based application, therefore, I wanted to acquire deeper knowledge on the topic, especially on distributed ledger technology. I also needed more information on the technical details of blockchain and to gather details about real-life usage.

The course offers extensive information about DLT and many examples of blockchain applications in the industrial/corporate environment. One of the most welcoming parts of the course was, no doubt, the one related to the technical side of blockchain, as I wanted to understand the technology deeper. The course has fully met this objective and provided me with the needed knowledge and tools. I am very happy for that and I will absolutely highlight this information every time I recommend the EIT Digital’s ’Blockchain for the Decision Maker’ professional course."

Zeno Amtmann "I had some basic understanding of blockchain technology, one application of that, namely the cryptocurrencies. However, I was not aware of the vast options and possibilities that this technology could provide. The course was extremely useful to understand and get somewhat "behind the scenes" of blockchain. It offered a great deal of new knowledge of this new phenomenon."

Zeno Amtmann
IT Consultant, AAM Management Consulting Ltd.
"In my capacity as COO at Freeway Entertainment Group B.V. (an international operating financial services company for the independent entertainment industry), part of my job is to identify opportunities and business risks. Besides demystification of several misunderstood blockchain/Hyperledger and NFT concepts and, in some cases, unrealistic client expectations we gained an arsenal of insights, arguments, and knowledge to help our clients better. I especially liked the brainstorming sessions. This created a safe background for all participants to exchange views, and where abstract ideas and concepts were exchanged and came to life through case studies and numerous metaphors and analogies.

I would recommend business owners and managing directors to follow this course to gain a basic but solid understanding of applied blockchain technologies."

Florian Reitsma
COO, Freeway Entertainment Group B.V
"Before taking on the course I already had a rudimentary understanding about the basics of blockchain technology and some ideas of how it can be usefully implemented within the public administration, and taxation in particular. My main interested was to get know details about some aspects and the state-of-play on permissioned blockchain technologies already available, as I planned to weigh the applicability of such an approach in the project that I have been working on.

Given that the course gave a good overview of the relevant subtopics and the instructors provided a well-rounded picture on the currently popular application ecosystems, by the end of the fourth day, I felt that I found answers to most of questions."

Peter Toth
Senior Advisor to the Commissioner of the NTCA
"A very dense, informative and insightful course that covers most essential aspects of blockchain technology. Very informed lecturers with complex perspectives on the topic. As a takeaway I have a reference point to most of my queries regarding blockchain. I registered for the course, because I work with different decision-making contexts were I need to understand and further explain and exemplify different technologies, including blockchain."
