If blockchain technology excites you, then you want to listen to this episode of State of the CIO with Feng Hou, Chief Digital Transformation Evangelist at Maryville University.
Feng has probably got the best title out of any guest on the show, but it’s a title he’s earned - he’s said to be the leading blockchain expert in higher education, and for good reason. Feng is working tirelessly to champion the implementation of blockchain technology into students’ everyday lives, to make certain processes much quicker, easier and more cost effective for all involved.
In fact, one of the reasons he was brought into his current role as Chief Digital Transformation Evangelist at Maryville University was not to help transform the IT system, but to transform the student experience.
Feng is working towards achieving this goal by leveraging advanced technology (blockchain) to help build overall efficiency into the higher education system. He and Dan talk at length about how blockchain technology can enhance the degree transcript process, as well as cutting costs overall.
