The fast-emerging distributed-ledger technology known as blockchain holds great promise. Blockchain provides controlled, secure access to sensitive data enabling traditionally independent organizations to work together to streamline and integrate processes. Business leaders are still trying to figure out how to put the technology to work. Yet most agree: Blockchain can unlock the vast value trapped in their business operations.

Blockchain: Transformative power for business operations

  1. 1. THERE’S A TON OF VALUE When companies exchange information with others in a value chain, complex, time-consuming processes are needed to reconcile that exchange. Such processes are extremely inefficient and trap significant value. Trapped in the processes companies use to do business together
  2. 2. BLOCKCHAIN IS A POWERFUL TOOL For restructuring how companies work together to unlock that value It’s a distributed, decentralized digital network that enables the exchange of value or the ability to confidently share data –including financial assets and contracts – in a secure environment. With blockchain, traditional independent players can work together to streamline and integrate processes, all with controlled access to sensitive data, rather than relying on redundant, siloed systems.
  3. 3. RECONCILE MESSAGING RECONCILE RECONCILE RECONCILE MESSAGING MESSAGING MESSAGING BLOCKCHAIN TRADITIONAL DATABASES Overcomes the limitations of traditional database models
  4. 4. BLOCKCHAIN SHARED DATABASES Overcomes the limitations of traditional database models TRUST
  5. 5. Blockchain builds trust into every transaction via attributes not available in standard database models. So all parties having controlled access to a single, shared copy. THE RESULTS Increased security, greater cost efficiency, and optimized reconciliation processes. BLOCKCHAIN Overcomes the limitations of traditional database models
  6. 6. Blockchain eliminates process and data siloes – freeing Intelligent Automation to expand and flourish across the entire value chain to transform business operations and communication among multiple companies. Applied Intelligence has been mainly applied to traditional, repetitive processes within the four walls of a company. Process and data siloes within companies have limited its use and impact outside the organization. …and generate even greater efficiencies BLOCKCHAIN CAN SUPERCHARGE INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION
  7. 7. BLOCKCHAIN Enables companies to reinvent processes Blockchain will enable an overhaul of the capabilities that support how companies interact with and act on shared data.
  8. 8. BLOCKCHAIN Improves productivity and quality By working from a mutualized data source via blockchain, companies can trust or eliminate one-off data updates, exceptions, and reconciliations.
  9. 9. BLOCKCHAIN Provides increased transparency among parties By connecting data across the value chain, blockchain will provide transparency and real-time sharing, thus boosting trust and minimizing risk.
  10. 10. Improved efficiency and working capital in finance and accounting Greater transparency across the supply chain Less vendor risk in sourcing and category management THREE OPERATIONAL AREAS ARE PRIME CANDIDATES FOR BLOCKCHAIN Blockchain’s impact on specific business operations and the broader value chain
  11. 11. Could transform procurement in the oil and gas industry BLOCKCHAIN PROTOTYPE PLATFORM AN ACCENTURE
  12. 12. It digitizes the process oil companies use to buy maintenance, services, and materials for their well sites – a process that’s still largely manual, time-consuming, and inefficient. Widespread adoption of such a platform by the industry could help oil and gas players reduce their cost structure to remain competitive in an era of low oil prices.
