Blockchain and ERP: What’s the Impact on Manufacturing and Distribution?

We’re hearing a lot about blockchain. But how will it impact the manufacturing and distribution sectors, and their extended enterprise?

Blockchain can be described as a “decentralized, open-source ledger that enables all parties to reach a consensus in a system without a central authority” and offers organizations the potential to support traceability, records management, supply chain automation, payment applications and many other transactions.

Blockchain delivers a near-real-time record that’s replicated among participants. The process takes information that would have previously been stored in the ERP silos of just one company and makes it available in a trusted system of record across disparate companies.
