Blockchains and databases – What is the difference?


Have you heard about blockchains? Most of you will probably say yes but still have a hard time explaining what the term really is and what it does.

Do you want to demystify what blockchains are, when they can be used and why blockchains are not always the answer?

Sign up for the event on April 25th, where one of the world’s leading experts in blockchains and databases, IBM Fellow C. Mohan, will unveil the differences and opportunities of the two technologies!

The event is aimed at both the engineer and businessperson, as we aim for an open debate on the future use of the technologies.
