The Bytes Behind Blocks: An Architect’s Guide to Blockchain

Much of the overwhelming amount of material on blockchain does not take an enterprise-first mindset. Instead, it takes a vendor-specific view — or promises a better life after discarding our current financial systems in favor of Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies. While these perspectives are important, today’s enterprise needs to understand the why. Why blockchain might make sense, why should it be considered, and why it is relevant. This book presents a practical view on blockchain for the enterprise, covering:

  • Overall fit and use in enterprise software architectures
  • Use cases, myths, and misconceptions
  • Associated topics such as distributed ledger technology, smart contracts, consensus, identity, security, privacy, and tokenization
  • Key topics to track into the future 

Blockchain is changing rapidly, as are the surrounding frameworks and regulations. It is easy to get lost in the maze of terms and technologies! Let this book be your guide, and enter this world armed with the knowledge needed to make your own choices, and the questions to ask along the way.
