Although most often associated with cryptocurrencies, today, blockchain technologies serve as the building blocks to new business opportunities. That’s why smart business leaders everywhere are ‘doing the blockchainification’.

‘Blockchainification,’ you ask? Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionise how enterprises share data and collaborate. Blockchainification is the process of gradually introducing this powerful technology into your enterprise solutions.

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

Testimonials

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.
