Blockchain-Based Transformation – Gartner’s Second Special Report on Blockchain

by Rajesh Kandaswamy  |  March 28, 2018  |  1 Comment

On behalf of the Blockchain community at Gartner, David Furlonger and I are pleased to share with you that the second special report on blockchain, “Blockchain-Based Transformation: A Gartner Trend Insight Report”, has been published.

This special report comes at a crucial juncture – blockchain offers the promise of radical transformation across businesses and even society, but there are only rare glimpses so far. Technology and business executives are unsure if blockchain will remain forever as a technology solution seeking a problem or if will grow to offer significant value. As part of this special report, we look at both the long term potential and current market adoption realities. We speak to how blockchain can apply to industries, vendors and business functions. We look deeper into facets of blockchain’s technology evolution.


This special report is content packed with 34 research notes and its scope spans blockchain’s potential, business impact and technology domains. It is written for leaders in different roles across many client audiences. More than 50 analysts from Gartner’s Blockchain Center of Excellence and Research Community collaborated to shape this research. This is a sequel to the special report “Practical Blockchain: A Gartner Trend Insight Report” that we published in the first half of 2017.

Gartner will continue to delve deeper into research on blockchain for our customers and we hope to publish another special report in the 3rd quarter of 2018, with special focus on blockchain technologies, including platforms, solutions, architecture and other aspects of successful technology use.

We welcome you to review our research and are happy to engage you with you through our client inquiries. David and I highlighted certain aspects of this in a webinar today and you can view the recorded webinar at “Blockchain Special Report: What to Expect in 2018”. We will also host a discussion on blockchain at Gartner’s forum for clients to interact with each other, the Peer Connect, next week (starting April 2, 2018). We look forward to engaging with you further.
