Session Abstract

How can Blockchain support materials traceability, life cycle management, and supply chain transparency?

The distributed ledger technology blockchain, popularized by the success of the cryptocurrency bitcoin, is among the hottest topics of the year. Some believe that this nascent technology will have a far greater impact than the Internet, with wide-ranging consequences on the way data is shared and exchanged between distributed organizations. However, the exploration of blockchain technology and its successful application to solve real-world business problems is still in the early stages.

In his keynote speech, Joerg Walden will look behind this trending buzzword and detail how blockchain can be turned into a value-creating and trust-increasing business reality. He will discuss how distributed ledger technology can support companies in providing accessibility, verification, and validation concerning the origin of materials and goods, the digital and physical lifecycle of a product, and the production systems and sources that supply the goods. Furthermore, he will highlight limitations as well as key challenges to implementing this technology in these and other contexts.
