What It Is

Blockchain is a database system that maintains and records data in a way that allows multiple organizations and individuals to confidently share access to the same data in real-time, while mitigating concerns around security, privacy and control.

Why It Matters

This capability creates whole new ways of thinking about how to transform processes, drive resiliency across complex networks like supply chains, facilitate trust, verify the digital identity of people and objects, and build new revenue models.

Where It's Going

Through a combination of blockchain, biometrics and identity, tokenization, confidential compute and a variety of other technologies also in use today, we are connecting networks of collaborative ecosystems that increase transparency and nimbleness.
