Kris Hansen from SAP talks to Zack Miller for the Tradestreaming podcast about the reality of blockchain technology.

Welcome to the latest Tradestreaming podcast. In our coverage of bitcoin and supporting blockchain technologies, it’s clear that the hype way overshoots what’s actually happening on the ground. So, to better understand how companies are actually interacting with distributed ledger tech, we went to Kris Hansen.

Kris is a senior principal at SAP, focused on financial services at the global software player level. In his role on the value engineering team, he identifies ways that digital approaches can be used to find interesting opportunities to create disruptive business value. A self-proclaimed “recovering” chief architect of a bank, he brings an interesting perspective on changing business models and technology platforms in financial services.

You can listen to more episodes of the Tradestreaming Podcast, and other fintech shows, on the BankNXT podcast page. Enjoy!
