Tuned to trust

The current model for managing identity is quickly becoming unsustainable – costly, disjointed and all too fallible. Blockchain, the technology underlying distributed ledgers shared across a scalable group of individuals and institutions, takes a new approach. It shifts the lens from disparate bits of information held by different owners to an always up-to-date lifetime history of data related to a person, place or thing. In effect, data tracked on a blockchain becomes a single source of truth. How should organizations approach this new opportunity?
