The basic promise of blockchain is that it works as a global distributed ledger or database of things we value - everything from money, to creative work and votes - so these can then be managed and transacted in a trusted and secure manner. Yes, blockchain is a young technology, but well past its infancy. Today, the somewhat inflated expectations around the technology have been brought to a more realistic level and we are beginning to see practical applications across the enterprise. Although these are typically in the realm of reducing cost and/or time for transactions, improving product and system security, finding and preventing fraud and counterfeiting and increasing transparency, there are also instances of businesses relying on blockchain to create new revenue streams. Infosys recently commissioned an independent survey of senior executives worldwide. Download the report to read about their findings.

Major retailers and mass merchandisers are turning up the pressure on their trading partners and even other retailers to implement Global Data Synchronization (GDS) within their organizations. These advocates see GDS and participation in the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) as the best path to improving the timeliness and accuracy of their supply chains, particularly once these efforts are broadly supported across the retail supply chain landscape.

The challenges presented by multiple Value-Added Networks (VANs) and managing diverse trading partners create barriers to the efficiencies promised by EDI. Multiple providers mean multiple points of failure with no one entity to hold accountable. Also, as trading communities grow, end-to-end supply chain visibility becomes an essential operational requirement.

Whilst the FSI sector races to implement cutting-edge technologies such as AI, blockchain and automation, there are no mutually agreed upon set of best practices to implement these technologies. As a result, organisations are using their own blend of strategic initiatives and company culture to drive innovation, with varying levels of success. To help, this article features advice from five of the leading experts in the FSI and technology sector today. Several of the most visible tactics to kick-start innovation in FSI organisations include launching innovation or incubation centres, launching hackathons, partnering with or acquiring start-ups, venture investment or simply trying to develop solutions in house. Whilst each of these approaches has potential, there is a risk that organisations fall into the trap of innovation theatre, in other words, failing to effectively integrate cutting edge technology into key business functions.
