Blockchain: business’ next new “It” technology—a comparison of blockchain, relational databases, and Google Sheets

Universities and Colleges Community of Interest leader Dr. Peter McAliney has recently co-authored an article in the academic “International Journal of Disclosure and Governance.”   The article compares the two more traditional technologies – relational databases and Google Sheets – with blockchain along a set of criteria that are essential to most business operations and discusses their applicability to meeting an accounting organization’s business needs.  His bio clearly states his affiliation with the Government Blockchain Association.  It can be purchased from the publisher (Springer) directly or can be downloaded if your organization already has a subscription to the publication.  See
