Securing Your Sustainable Supply Chain

In today’s global economy, goods sometimes travel a worldwide circuit with multiple stops before reaching their final destination. This distance between source and recipient offers great potential for confusion. Additionally, today’s consumer wants to understand the what, where, and how of a particular product’s provenance. Blockchain technology offers a secure digital ledger in which the multiple participants on a given Supply Chain can update data in real time. Thoughtful incorporation of the Blockchain into your Supply Chain practice offers increased security, transparency, responsiveness and eventually can fully transform your Supply Chain into a hyper-efficient cost-saving, risk-reducing Demand Chain.

Leveraging Blockchain to Digitize your Supply Chain | Two Case Studies

Case Study 1: The MediLedger Project:  Developing the Blockchain EcoSystem for the Pharma Supply Chain - Blockchain is a perfect solution for the track and trace of prescription medicines - and the law is requiring it, with the need for an electronic interoperable system in the US by 2023.  We want to tell the story of how we have brought together top pharma and distributor companies to develop the blockchain solution "owned" by the industry and operated in a truly distributed environment. Case Study 2: Chronicled's technology is helping a major precious metals players track and tokenize responsibly sourced gold to provide investors an easy frictionless way to own gold directly.

How Will IoT, Blockchain and AI transform the Supply Chain?

The most successful supply chain leaders know that a modern supply chain - with full visibility and extended collaboration - is required to keep pace with changing expectations of clients. You need the ability to act more quickly with confidence to mitigate disruptions by taking advantage of new technologies including IoT, Blockchain and IBM Watson.  Learn how these disruptive technologies enable organizations to build a more intelligent, demand-sensitive and customer-centric supply chain.

Blockchain & Serialization, a Prescription for a Healthy Supply Chain

Counterfeit pharmaceuticals sold on the internet and in emerging markets are a serious challenge, affecting millions of people each year. DHL and Accenture are driving a blockchain based serialization project to capture logistics for medications that prove the legitimacy and integrity of pharmaceutical products.  In this session, we will explore how blockchain fits into the solution and its advantages over conventional frameworks. As we demonstrate the solution, we will share learnings and advice from this implementation.

  • Richard Meszaros, Managing Director, Global Lead Industry X.0 Digital Transactions, Accenture
  • Becky Ross, DHL Supply Chain

15mins

Closing Keynote: The Distributed Ledger Driven Demand Chain

Imagine a supply system that did not have to be reactive. The data and resources have been so carefully and reliably tracked that you know exactly who will need what when and how long it will take to deliver that item. Instead of a supply chain, you now have a “Demand Chain” that drives the company’s progress instead of simply supporting it.
