Indianapolis Business Journal

JUNE 1-7, 2018

In our fourth annual Innovation Issue, IBJ staffers are focusing on technologies rife with promise but that haven’t yet exploded in the mainstream. “Blockchain,” for example, only recently became a buzzword. Susan Orr explains how it could become transformative in the business world by providing a secure way of conducting all kinds of transactions. Virtual reality has been in the popular consciousness for decades, but its applications for business—and, in particular, training employees—are still evolving, Lesley Weidenbener reports. And cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin have been making headlines for their big moves in market value, but the man on the street still isn’t likely to use them to buy a hamburger. Anthony Schoettle explains their appeal and why some folks are still skeptical about their utility.
