S1:E9 - Board International's Nelson Petracek: Enterprise Use Cases for Blockchain and the Future of Distributed Ledgers
In today’s episode, I’m speaking with Board CTO Nelson Petracek about the different enterprise use cases for distributed ledgers, which are often referred to as blockchains even though a blockchain is just one form of the technology.
We also talk about why, despite years of hype, these technologies, which showed so much early promise haven’t really taken off.
We also discuss some alternative technologies such as immutable databases that can be used to achieve similar results—without the management headaches inherent in a distributed ledger.
Finally, we take a look ahead to identify where this technology may find a home and where its benefits really lie.
Board is a provider of Intelligent Planning Solutions to over 2,000 organizations worldwide including H&M, BASF, Burberry, Toyota, and Coca-Cola. When this call was recorded in October of 2022, Nelson was the CTO of the business intelligence platform provider TIBCO.
