The climb of a blockchain multiparty network ecosystems leader : Mary Ann Holder

Blockchain in logistics guides 2021 with 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.

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.

“While many vendors just talk about bringing automation to their supply chain planning and inventory optimization software, One Network has customers that are live and using the capabilities to extract value from the technology,” said Seth Lippincott, lead analyst of the report. “By providing an integrated platform on which customers can run their supply chains end-to-end, the vendor is shortening the distance between planning and execution, providing a holistic view of inventory and the ability to optimize stocking levels. Nucleus expects the value One Network delivers to continue to improve as more customers adopt its automation and intelligent capabilities.” MaryAnn Holder-Browne, Chief Marketing Officer of One Network: “We are thrilled to once again be recognized by Nucleus Research”.
