Our Topic

"Blockchain - Today's Red Hot Topic"

By allowing digital information to be distributed but not copied, blockchain technology created the backbone of a new type of internet. Originally devised for digital currency, the tech community is now finding other potential uses for the technology.

Blockchain technology can radically transform the supply chain. Many companies are already investing in Blockchain solutions for their businesses. Natalia's presentation will cover an introduction to Blockchain and key concepts, benefits of Blockchain for supply chain, specific supply chain use cases, and more details about food safety and traceability use case. The world of global trade is fast-paced, ever-changing, and always evolving. In order to keep pace, your supply chain processes and technology need to evolve also.
