After years of theoretical debates and abstract use cases, it is no longer a question of if blockchain will cause market disruption, but rather when and how widely the impact will be felt. Now is the time to remove any outstanding doubts about blockchain applicability and strategically manage the business and operational risks that inevitably come with innovation. The main barrier being how to best plan for and manage the disruption. In all cases, correctly quantifying the threats and opportunities is a requirement for success.
Using a range of specific cases across various markets and industries, including financial services, supply chain and healthcare, our research illustrates how a scientific method of predictive emulation can be used to reveal where the capabilities of blockchain are best suited to solve business problems, quantify the expected improvements and manage the risks in delivering the solution.
