The business blockchain:

promise, practice and application of the next internet technology

William Mougayar

HG1710 .M68 2016

The definitive pioneering blueprint covering the what, why and how of the blockchain.

Blockchains are new technology layers that rewire the Internet and threaten to side-step older legacy constructs and centrally served businesses. At its core, a blockchain injects trust into the network, cutting off some intermediaries from serving that function and creatively disrupting how they operate. Metaphorically, blockchains are the ultimate non-stop computers. Once launched, they never go down, and offer an incredible amount of resiliency, making them dependable and attractive for running a new generation of decentralized services and software applications.

The Business Blockchain charts new territory in advancing our understanding of the blockchain by unpacking its elements like no other before. William Mougayar anticipates a future that consists of thousands, if not millions of blockchains that will enable not only frictionless value exchange, but also a new flow of value, redefining roles, relationships, power and governance.

Drawing on 34 years of technology industry experience as an executive, analyst, consultant, entrepreneur, startup mentor, author, blogger, educator, thought leader and investor, William Mougayar describes a future that is influenced by fundamental shifts brought by blockchain technology as the catalyst for change.

Welcome 17Ds!

welcomemba-17dclass_resized

Dear 17D Class,

Welcome to INSEAD.

Here are a few pointers to get a head start:

Are you in the job search mode yet?

Stop by on the ground floor of the library to check out our job search corner. Last year’s most popular titles: Ace Your CaseCase in Point, Crack the Case.

Looking to improve your Français, Italiano, or Deutsch to ace the 3rd language requirement?

Check out our language books, here is a selected list. For more material on various languages, just use the Library catalogue.

What about textbooks?

Most recent editions of textbooks cannot be checked out of the library, however, you are welcome to pick one up from the shelves on the ground floor and read it “in house”. No need to carry these heavy items around everyday. We also have a small selection of e-textbooks (look for the ‘online access’ mention).

Where can I find articles on a topic? How do I start researching a company?

You can start on this databases page, use these research guides or video tutorials.  If you want to know how to get full text articles from the Harvard Business Review or the Financial Times, create a target list of companies, find SWOT analyses and more, contact the research librarians.

How do I contact you?

The Doriot Library is staffed Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 6:00pm. Contact the information desk during these hours or contact a specific person/department using the staff directory page.

We look forward to seeing you,
