Stop Integrating. Start Collaborating.

Technologies of the 90’s and 2000’s eased cross-enterprise integration, but those approaches required each party to implement their own process logic and maintain their own transaction data. The need to reconcile logic and data across enterprises made B2B integrations costly to implement and operate.

Blockchain technology is typically associated with financial asset trading, but we see a much larger opportunity. Blockchain technology can be used to strip away the complexity of legacy business integration models used in many processes.

With blockchain, businesses don’t integrate different processes. Instead, they implement shared processes and transaction logic just once. Then they securely share the same data about each interaction. Blockchain technology enables businesses to work with their customers, suppliers, and partners more efficiently than ever.

Blockchain changes complex business integrations into streamlined business collaborations. When enterprises interact using the exact same logic and data they reduce friction and costs. They say goodbye to time consuming transaction reconciliation and dispute resolution.

BLOCKCHAIN PROVIDES UNPARALLELED SUPPLY CHAIN VISIBILITY

Blockchain solutions set a new standard by offering simplified integration and more real-time information than prior options like VANs, GDS services, and cloud hubs… all without having to pay and trust a third party.

Building

30 Days to Blockchain? Yes. Really!

IT People’s position as early leaders in enterprise blockchain implementation has allowed our blockchain consulting team to build a growing set of solution accelerators. We’ve identified, developed, and tested the common building blocks needed in most blockchain projects. Our accelerators include a solution for secure and resilient off-chain document management, a configurable state tracking engine for physical and virtual assets, a framework for self-managed identity, and interfaces to common enterprise messaging systems.

IT People’s blockchain consulting team’s accelerators allow us go from concept to complete proof in as little as six weeks. This includes a discovery workshop, solution design, development, and testing. Our team uses agile practices to quickly build an initial solution that can form the foundation of a full-scale enterprise business network.

Do you have a business integration project you need implemented using the most efficient technology available that also minimizes operational costs? Contact us for more details on how a blockchain-based solution can help.
