Supply Chain
Bolster your supply chain with multi-tier visibility and workflow automation. This matters more today, as consumers demand product authenticity and sustainability, and businesses demand data integrity and faster reconciliation between their partners.

Kris Kersey, Partner, Blockchain Services, IBM

Identity/Credentialing
Provide verifiable credentials such as personal health and learning record in a privacy-preserving way, allowing an individual to manage their information through an encrypted digital wallet on their personal device and maintain control of what they share, with whom and what purpose.
Alex Kaplan, Global Leader, Blockchain for Credentials, IBM
Kal Patel, Partner and Practice Leader, Blockchain Services, IBM

Digital Assets/Tokens
Asset tokenization goes beyond representing traditional financial instruments and enable trading of illiquid assets with speed at low cost. Manage the full lifecycle of your digital assets with a complete smart contract framework supporting equities, bonds, derivatives and other asset classes.
Ryan Rugg, Partner, Blockchain Services, IBM
Shyam Nagarajan, Executive Partner, Go To Market, Blockchain Services, IBM
