as tools to improve their business scheme.

transformation were amazing. The study concluded that almost 90% of large
corporations have a strong interest in the application of blockchain
technologies and artificial intelligence.
“To fuel this transformation, the vast majority (86%) of digitally transforming organizations are adopting new technologies to support agile app development, as well as getting their hands dirty now with forward-looking technologies like blockchain and AI.
