Speaker - Nelson Petracek, CTO, TIBCO Software, Inc
As the world transforms to digital—and companies try to stay relevant while balancing demands for sustainability and social responsibility—effective, efficient, and secure operations are critical. To achieve the level of agility needed to succeed in an increasingly connected world, many organizations are building “digital twins” – digital representations of not only devices and equipment, but also of business processes, people, and even the organization itself.
But what do these digital twins look like? What capabilities are required for a successful digital twin? How can blockchain play a role in enriching their implementation across complex distributed systems? Join this session to discuss these questions, and to hear how blockchain, in conjunction with smart contracts, can drive the next generation of digital twin applications.
