How is blockchain mitigating Covid-19 related supply chain disruption?
About the webinar
The session was designed to illustrate the role that blockchain based solutions can play in accelerating effective post-pandemic digital transformation initiatives.
While true-believers have always maintained that the technology can positively aid supply chain networks, it’s taken the disruption of Covid-19 to reignite interest in blockchain to a wider mainstream audience.
Advocates insist that blockchains give users not only a high-degree of data visibility but also end-to-end transaction security and accuracy.
The webinar content focused on the role the technology is playing in reinventing supply chain networks over next 12-24 months (including enhancing decision-making, reducing fraud and theft, cutting bureaucracy and improving identity affirmation)
Key talking points that were addressed are:
- The need for connected and integrated supply chains
- Blockchain’s potential to create a better supply system and network
- UAE’s ambition to be a go-to destination for blockchain adoption
- Best practice examples from across the region (build transparent, inter-operable and connective networks)
