Solution Sales Representative of the current market leader in enterprise blockchain projects’ development and adoption (IBM Global Technology Services) to join Blockchain-related panel discussion at PICANTE TECH Conference Europe 2019.


Each day, forward-thinking companies are transforming blockchain’s promise into bottom-line business results. And many of them are doing it with IBM Blockchain.

But building and deploying enterprise blockchain solutions continues to be larger than any one business can tackle on its own. Discover how IBM Blockchain can help you bring together allies across departments and disciplines, industries and organizations, and countries and cultures.

2 years ago, IBM unveiled its “Blockchain as a Service”, which is based on the open source Hyperledger Fabric, version 1.0 from The Linux Foundation.

Today, IBM’s blockchain innovations are starting to get noticed. Three Australian banks have teamed up with mall owner Scentre Group to test the company’s blockchain platform. Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Westpac Banking Corporation, and Australia and New Zealand Banking Group said in a recent press release that they would trial the blockchain platform in the digitization of bank guarantees.

With the help of the IBM blockchain, the Australian banks are planning to move away from paper-based bank guarantees. The switch should allow the banks to reduce processing times for bank guarantees and curb fraud. The project validates IBM’s research and development efforts around blockchain technology.

During the inaugural PICANTE TECH Conference Europe (TCE2019), which will take place in Prague on the 3rd of September at Vienna House Andel’s Prague, Tomáš Žilavý, Solution Sales Representative at IBM Global Technology Services, will explain how implementing IBM’s blockchain solution can bring benefits for your company.
