blockchain for business: Microsoft Coco Framework

Announcing the Coco Framework for enterprise blockchain networks | Blog | Microsoft Azure

"Coco Framework, an open-source system that enables high-scale, confidential blockchain networks that meet all key enterprise requirements—providing a means to accelerate production enterprise adoption of blockchain technology.

Coco achieves this by designing specifically for confidential consortiums, where nodes and actors are explicitly declared and controlled. Based on these requirements, Coco presents an alternative approach to ledger construction, giving enterprises the scalability, distributed governance and enhanced confidentiality they need without sacrificing the inherent security and immutability they expect."

book: The Anticipatory Organization (vs. Agile)

A new bool from Daniel Burrus, a technology futurist with proven track record.

The Anticipatory Organization: Turn Disruption and Change into Opportunity and Advantage: Daniel Burrus: 9781626344464: Books

"Anticipate Disruption before it happens.
Turn Disruption & Change into Opportunity & Advantage."

"Technology-driven change is accelerating at an exponential rate, but moving fast in the wrong direction will only get you into trouble faster! Reacting to problems and digital disruptions, no matter how agile you and your organization are, is no longer good enough.

The Anticipatory Organization teaches you how to separate the Hard Trends that will happen, from the Soft Trends that might happen, allowing you to jump ahead with low risk and the confidence certainty can provide. Accelerate innovation and actively shape the future—before someone else does it for you!"
