On the second day, our team had a chance to talk directly to the potential customers and partners. Thanks to the presentation of several use cases of SophiaTX blockchain, Marian opened a discussion about “When blockchain makes sense.” These discussions resulted in half-hour talk fully focused on PoC which showcased how data can be sent from one system/application to another, even if it is not an SAP product.
