Gain trust and transparency with IBM IoT Blockchain Service

Take advantage of blockchain security

With IBM® IoT Blockchain Service, IoT devices can send data to private blockchain ledgers for inclusion in shared transactions with tamper-resistant records. The distributed replication of the IBM blockchain enables your business partners to access and supply IoT data without the need for central control and management. All business partners can verify each transaction, preventing disputes and ensuring each partner is held accountable for their individual roles in the overall transaction.

Optimize logistics, shipping and your supply chain

IBM IoT Blockchain Service lets you track, monitor and report on the status and location of shipments, goods or supplies. It enforces key quality criteria and optimizes logistics.

Gain better provenance

Ensure proper materials, parts and processes go into delivered products or goods using information across many vendors for safety, regulation and standards – like the Digital Business Ecosystem (DBE) Core data model.

Maximize the use of your IoT devices

Measure and validate the state physical assets and environment. Transform IoT data to blockchain data and transform logic for business contract validation. IBM IoT Blockchain Service uses an IBM Blockchain hyperledger so that transactions are written in permanent shared ledger with other critical transactions. The solution also provides shared value and improved processes by helping you deliver stronger business network solutions with end-to-end visibility, higher compliance and shared truth.

How customers use it

  • Freight transportation

    Freight transportation

    Problem

    Moving freight is a complex process involving different parties with different priorities.

    Solution

    An IoT-enabled blockchain can store the temperatures, position, arrival times and status of shipping containers as they move through the system. It ensures that all parties can trust the data and take action to move the product efficiently.

  • Component tracking and compliance

    Component tracking and compliance

    Problem

    Tracking the components that go into an aircraft, automobile or other vehicle is critical both for safety and regulatory compliance.

    Solution

    IoT data stored in shared blockchain ledgers enables all parties to see component provenance throughout the vehicle’s life. Sharing this information with regulatory agencies, shippers and manufacturers is secure, easy and cost-effective.

  • Log operational maintenance data

    Log operational maintenance data

    Problem

    IoT devices track the state of safety of critical machines and their maintenance in your organization.

    Solution

    Blockchain provides a tamper-free ledger of operational data. Repair partners can monitor the blockchain for preventive maintenance and record their work. Operational records can also be shared with government entities to verify compliance.
