Blockchain-enabled network platform applications right now by Mary Ann Holder? What are you working on today at One Network? Well, it’s good that you asked. We were working on a lot of great initiatives for 2019, especially around AI. We’re looking at how artificial intelligence is impacting the supply chain and how our solution can really help companies to better their supply chain and their relationships with their supplier networks. What do you think are some of the like top-line challenges for marketers for chief marketing officers or maybe even their suppliers? We are working on personalization. Really getting that right tailored content to our individual buyers and the community that surrounds them. When you think about a network, every buyer comes with their own network and a set of influencers that need to be messaged to accordingly. We have to really figure out what that message is and hone in on it and deliver it in a really personal way that it’s not canned or automated. There is a challenge in identifying the right technologies to help us do that. Then, also, the right types of content.
Mary Ann Holder on One Network’s Intelligent Control Tower: One Network’s Intelligent Control Tower is not your typical control tower, that provides visibility to immediate trading partners only. The Intelligent Control Tower monitors, manages, and controls decisions and execution across functions and across companies to optimize the entire network. The Intelligent Control Tower uses AI and serves as a system of engagement across trading partners, and orchestrates companies, people and things to work together in real-time to serve the end consumer. Until recently, supply chain control towers have been all about providing visibility to your immediate trading partners. But with the development of multi-party, consumer-driven networks, advanced control towers now provide real-time visibility, collaboration and powerful AI capabilities to move beyond decision-support to decision-making and autonomous control.
One Network’s Real Time Value NetworkTM (RTVN) platform is a true multiparty network ecosystem enabling two or more parties to participate on the same transaction using a common business object. The RTVN supports critical processes ranging from supply chain planning (demand, supply, respond), store planning and execution, to supply chain execution (procurement, manufacturing, fulfillment, transportation) which includes knowledge of supply chain planning and Transportation Management System (TMS)systems of records. Unlike antiquated ERP-approaches, the RTVN optimizes internal and external partners so they can achieve common financial and operational goals on the network and build trust between parties.
Multiparty networks have all the key elements missing from blockchain 1.0, including: Scalability – using a scalable grid architecture, multiparty network support tens of thousands of trading partners and the transaction volume that entails. Confidentiality – because they are built using multiparty permissions frameworks with granular and role-based permissions to ensure secure data access. Functionality – by providing powerful, multiparty apps such as logistics management that run on the network and write to a blockchain. Community Master Data Management (MDM) – that manages and synchronizes data across different systems and parties to ensure data is trusted. Combined, these features enable powerful functionality that can support all parties, including buyers, sellers, fulfillment, and logistics partners via a shared app. This allows all parties to transact while showing only the relevant authorized slice of the data to each partner.
