A SEMI Smart Data Hosted Webinar
8:00 am - 9:00 am
Online, Pacific Time,
Digital transformation is continuing to change the way we look at building applications. For years, enterprises have been attempting to streamline manufacturing functions and the associated supply chain by building marketplaces, “standardized” exchange formats, and monolithic systems. However, in many cases, these solutions have missed the mark, and resulted in processes that are fragmented, brittle, and unable to share data seamlessly.
Blockchain, the underlying technology behind Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency platforms, can potentially address many of these issues. The ability to share information via a shared, trusted distributed network with embedded business logic has many potential benefits for the manufacturing industry, especially when combined with techniques from the IoT and AI communities. Join this webinar to hear about enterprise blockchains, associated manufacturing use cases, and several items (including myths) that must be considered for a successful blockchain enterprise implementation.
