Blockchain – Coming to a Transaction Near You

Blockchain is a technology for enabling and managing transactions and data sharing, bringing a level of security, transparency, and efficiency never before possible. Given how fundamental transactions are to how we function as a society, this evolution will have a transformative effect not just on business, but to how we live. Hyperledger is the fastest growing initiative in Linux Foundation history and Hyperledger Fabric, the work Mark has led, includes over 159 engineers from 28 organizations around the world. Project Management will need to understand the implications for business processes and how working with an open source community might be leveraged within the PM discipline.


Mark has been a people and project manager for 17 years at IBM, who’s worked on both legacy products and new emerging technologies within IBM and in conjunction with open source product development. His current role is on one such open source project focused on an emerging technology, blockchain. He helped lead the creation of Hyperledger Fabric, a popular open source blockchain technology owned by the Linux Foundation. He is working with multiple companies on the use of this and IBM’s enterprise enhancements. His broad involvement with the technology and evolving uses give him great perspective to help you understand blockchain and project management. Mark is based in Raleigh, North Carolina and likes to fish and golf whenever he can find time.
