Blockchain Environment

The strange thing about blockchain industry is the idea of a “trustless system”. More precisely is how small is the trustless component in the picture of most applications built on top of it.

For example, the private blockchains used for things like supply chain tracking in multy-company supply chains. On paper, this looks great. A freshly designed ERP system with cool looking web and mobile interfaces well-tailored UI for every user role. The important information about product status changes is written into a private distributed ledger which is transparent to all parties involved and everyone lived happily ever after.

This is a short summary of almost every blockchain-ERP integration project for logistics. What is underneath the hood of almost all such projects? A bunch of nodes of Hyperledger (Corda, if you want everyone to know that you have ALOT of money) with every other interface of the system being deployed in the Amazon, IBM or Google cloud. 50% of the time a single support admin of the developers subcontractor has a single-handed access to every blockchain node deployed as a virtual machine… Guess where? In the same cloud. Such security. Much trust.

But whatever. The group of companies running the supply chain have already published press releases about their new state of the art blockchain-supply ERP. There are some reports of the increased KPI (probably because the previous ERP was a gradually evolving Frankenstein monster stemming from some glitchy decades-old code) and the stocks jump by couple percents which makes a nice return on investment from the project.

This is the story of an average supply blockchain project. Of course, it has no relation to your particular project if you ever did one. Of course, the node access is properly distributed between all the parties. Of course, your project has worked out and tested courses of action if nodes fall out of consensus. Of course, there are independently developed explorer interfaces for these nodes to monitor the consensus state. Of course, you have the notification system to tell all the stakeholders when something goes wrong.

In case you need a well-implemented blockchain-based ERP system - we will gladly help. Also if you need a “standard” implementation of blockchain-based ERP for supply chain management with high load carry capacity and multiple web/mobile interfaces for various roles and bells and whistles - we can draw an architecture of such system and provide you with a press release for about one-twentieth of a price of such project. On top of that, we can design an indistinguishable ERP system with conventional cloud databases. Same stuff but works faster.
