What is it?

Blockchains will do for networks of enterprises and business ecosystems what enterprise resource planning (ERP) did for the single company. Blockchain enables the decentralised exchange of trusted data – it acts as a “shared record book”. With Blockchain, information will be integrated and processed within and across enterprise boundaries and has the potential to streamline and accelerate your business processes, while increasing cybersecurity and reducing or eliminating the roles of intermediaries.
