The World Economic Forum supports the thoughtful implementation of blockchain for the supply chain after Covid-19


The World Economic Forum (WEF) has launched a blockchain deployment toolkit to present guidelines for best practices - when the body urges beyond the coronavirus pandemic, there needs to be prospects. about technology.

The toolkit is the result of more than a year of WEF work, working with more than 100 organizations and 50 countries and reviewing 40 blockchain use cases, from traceability and traceability to automation and reasonable operation.

The two pilot programs have been put together, which the WEF said has created findings on objective and instructional needs, as well as structured, streamlined processes.

In a project with the Abu Dhabi Digital Authority (ADDA), the WEF sought to implement best practices in bringing blockchain into the public infrastructure's digital infrastructure. Prior to piloting, ADDA found challenges in developing a complete set of guidelines for block chain deployment due to the dynamic nature of emerging technologies.

For Saudi Aramco, the parameters revolve around supplier management and verification of credentials. With the help of the toolkit, the WEF has invited energy suppliers to develop a structured approach, as well as provide a clear checklist to ensure all aspects. The project is covered during the planning and implementation process.

In January, the WEF supported a positive outlook for blockchain technologies in 2020 and beyond - but only when 'resigned, the governance around became mainstream. Electronic companies are waking up with the idea that to go away, they should go together, wrote Sheila Warren, head of WEF of blockchain and distributed ledger technology at the time.

Since then, the Covid-19 pandemic has posed a seismic threat to business operations like conventional processes introduced in industries earlier this year. Linda Lacina, digital editor of the World Economic Forum, noted that potential blockchain technologies may have developed.

Later, Covid-19 pointed out the gaps in our supply chain and the opportunity for technologies like blockchain to increase efficiency and strengthen trust across a range of stakeholders, according to Lac Lacina. However, as organizations turned quickly to incorporate these new technologies, the crisis emphasized the need for both speed and clarity in deployment.

In the near future, Lacina hopes this toolkit will be consulted by organizations focusing on other projects directly against coronavirus. The role of the supply chain has never been more important, Lac writes. The resource-rich toolkit can streamline block chain implementation efforts for a variety of different supply chains and their stakeholders ensure continued resilience.
