How could your organization benefit from blockchain?

Blockchain technology has created a revolution in organizations around the world. A recent World Economic Forum report predicts that by 2029 11% of GDP will be stored on blockchain related infrastructure.

With blockchain, transactions and compliance can be made faster and easier. According to a report from PwC, 84% of executives surveyed said their companies are “actively involved” with blockchain technology.

The Executive Education program gives you the knowledge and tools you’ll need to create a blockchain strategy for your organization. You’ll also understand where blockchain is headed and how to capitalize on emerging trends.

 

Business Disruption From Blockchain Is Real But Is It An Opportunity Or A Threat?

Let’s take a look at the international conglomerate, Honeywell International, for keen insight as to how they are successfully utilized blockchain technology…
Within their Honeywell Aerospace unit, they have deployed blockchain technology to disrupt and improve the market for used aircraft parts. Whereas, previously, transactions would take two phone calls, four emails, numerous quotes, two days to close, and an untold trail of paperwork (the sale of larger parts would take many more weeks)…
 
With blockchain their partners simply locate a part and purchase items – instantly. In turn, they’ve made it easier for their consumers to verify certifications, origin of parts, and have increased transaction speed by a whopping 7,000%!
This powerful blockchain-backed online marketplace allows their more than 800 partners and distributors (including Dassault Falcon Jet Corp. and StandardAero Aviation Holdings Inc.) to trade parts in real-time.
Some will ask, “What about compliance and regulations?
It’s a valid concern – as many industries (aircraft-parts included) are heavily regulated, requiring special certifications and proper documentation. Yet here’s the catch: blockchain quickly finds the history of a used part, previous owners, origin, everything at the click of a button.
From a consumer benefit standpoint, the real end result of this blockchain breakthrough is that it’s made flying planes much safer for all of us by allowing parts to be sourced quickly and accurately.
Sathish Muthukrishnan, Chief Digital & Information Officer at Honeywell Aerospace said, “The goal was to digitize transactions. To make it frictionless, and remove human interaction, I need a technology that will create trust. That’s where blockchain came in.
How much do you think increasing transaction speed from a few weeks to a click of a button has been worth to Honeywell?

Here Are The Numbers...

The latest numbers from May 2019 show that by making user-interface and transactions much smoother, blockchain technology helped bring in a windfall $2,000,000.00… in less than 3 months after launching the technology.
Their target sales by year-end are north of $10,000,000.00. Incredible!
Now, Honeywell isn’t the only giant company raking in the profits from blockchain.
The world’s #1 retailer by sales – Walmart – is a huge believer in blockchain technology. Having filed 50+ blockchain patents for everything from tracking shipments to operating drones. They’ve even partnered with IBM Food Trust to improve food safety through easier-to-track blockchain tech, which has helped with food safety, reduction of food borne illnesses. Now whenever these mishaps happen, Walmart can understand when and where in the supply chain they occured, allowing them to remedy the problem quickly and save costs.
Likewise, IBM’s own blockchain efforts are supported by some 1,500 experts, with the company participating in more than 500 blockchain projects.
Alibaba (the Chinese e-commerce giant) is blazing the blockchain path with 90 patents filed for blockchain technology as of September 2018 – allowing them to more easily track, verify, and ship their ecommerce products.
The list goes on and on…
If you and your organization are ready to gain a deeper understanding of the explosive potential of blockchain technology, enabling you to assess which business problems it can solve, the Kingsland University Executive Fast-Track Program is the perfect fit for you. We will provide you with a blueprint for a blockchain strategy that addresses specific challenges and roadblocks within your own organization.
