The course focuses on the changes in the business architecture and how businesses can harness blockchainification — the gradual introduction of the benefits of the blockchain principles into existing solutions.
Zeno Amtmann, IT Consultant at AAM Management Consulting, enrolled in Blockchain for The Decision Maker at EIT Digital. Opting for an EIT Digital professional education was an easy decision – it is a leading European institution in digital education.
The 20-year industry veteran added that the education partner and course organiser in this course, the prestigious Budapest University of Technology and Economics was the other determining factor in his decision.
“Blockchain seems to be a promising solution to several issues that we face today. However, its full potential is poorly understood,” Amtmann says.
“It seemed beneficial to spend time studying this field and expand my knowledge in this area as part of my continuous learning.“
The course supported his professional upskilling in the advantages and essentials of the blockchain paradigm: “It offered a great deal of new knowledge and a better understanding of this new phenomenon,” Amtmann concludes.
