Renaud de Barbuat

Carrefour, Chief Information Officer
Digital Identity & Bridging Blockchains, Tuesday, February 19, 08:30
Renaud will share the Retail industry perspective on a panel of experts. As the industries that we serve demand new solutions to their business challenges, new technologies that rely on identity as foundational (such as blockchain ledgers and traceability solutions) are emerging as higher priority. Stakeholders are collaborating with various consortiums, and interoperability is becoming a critical requirement for success. As a result, GS1 standards for identity (and data sharing) are emerging as foundational to success in enterprise blockchain implementations. Come hear Renaud de Barbuat and other industry leaders discuss the bridge between digital identity and interoperable blockchain ecosystems, and the role that GS1 can play in this very exciting future.
