The Blockchain Maturity Model Training

Friday, May 27, all day

Organizations around the world are beginning to acquire blockchain solutions. Without the knowledge or framework to distinguish between a reliable solution and a hyped prototype, buyers will resort to the big providers.

The BMM helps less-known solution providers demonstrate their credibility to potential customers as well as providing a roadmap to continuous improvement. 

In some cases, the government provides financial assistance to use the BMM to improve and demonstrate blockchain solutions.

Join us for the very first BMM training class, all day Friday, at no additional cost to your BSEG ticket. For more information on the BMM, click HERE.
