When you say buyer, are you talking about the supplier-buyer the individual persona like all of the above? The supplier-buyer has their own sort of set of needs and research materials and places that they go to get information. But, when you think about an individual buying they are influenced by their immediate sphere and there may be their generation maybe their educational status and where they reside in the organization. Along with that, we build buyer personas. The buyer persona really helps us to map out who we’re talking to and what types of things and what types of issues really would make them tick and make a decision.
This year is the first time Gartner has published a report on multienterprise supply chain solutions. The report stated,”Networks are not new, but with companies focusing more on having end-to-end (E2E) processes include their external trading partners, these networks are increasing in importance and value. Collecting data and sensing signals in real time, and then coordinating, executing, and resolving issues quickly, will allow companies to operate their supply chains more effectively.”
But before applying the technology to logistic processes, let’s first start by understanding the function of blockchain. Blockchain is a shared, tamper-resistant digital ledger that provides a near real-time record of things such as transactions, records of ownership, locations, values, state of goods, etc. The ledger is shared among parties which brings transparency to the supply chain, because everyone is equally informed about things like the location, carrier, condition, and documentation relating to a shipment. Smart contracts can further automate many transactions based on other transactions, such as triggering a change in ownership titles when a payment is made.
