Blockchain Unraveled – and Podcast on Business Transformation

Blockchain is still a bit of a black box to most people I speak with. Understanding the technology is a prerequisite for making the right use of it.
For the time being, Permissioned (Enterprise) Blockchains mainly implement the DLT (distributed ledger technology) component rather than the full stack of blockchain technology that supports complete decentralization. Still DLT technology has its value in enterprise architectures, but supporting it today has several challenges and obstacles. 
My colleague Scott Smith recently produced a very interesting podcast on Business Transformation. He included a segment on Blockchain in the Enterprise that you can find at 19:18 minutes into the podcast. This segment explores the current value and challenges with Permissioned (Enterprise) Blockchain.  
Here’s the link and the summary of what’s inside the full podcast:
