Higher Performance with Blockchain Solutions

Blockchain: From buzzword to company practice

Adding transactions and making them visible

When you want to bring a blockchain solution to life you have to solve several problems at the same time and it is usually not in a customers core expertise. Andreas Dittrich shows how T-Systems supports.

How does a blockchain work?

Blockchain is a register with decentralized distribution in which all of a network's transactions are saved. Here, several transactions are collated in one block and the blocks are linked together chronologically. What is crucial is that the correctness of a piece of information no longer needs to be verified by a central authority, but is confirmed using a transparent mechanism of consensus between the participants. Blockchain technology thus supports cooperation across the organization along the entire value chain.

The benefits that blockchain technology brings to you


  • Automating document processing in the blockchain via smart contracts
  • Saving important documents directly in the blockchain using time stamps
  • Avoiding human error and error-prone manual processes
  • Time and cost savings
  • Increasing efficiency with automated processing

Digital trust

  • Immutability of information
  • Tamper-proof timestamps and digital signature/clear identification promote digital trust
  • Central authority no longer required ("Single source of failure")
  • Increases data integrity


  • Tracing supply chains incl. transport parameters (temperature etc.)
  • Transparency for tracing the supply chain – recall campaigns/damage limitation can be implemented much more efficiently, quickly and securely
  • Participants can see changes

Blockchain technology can be used in all areas where large-scale and comprehensive exchange of data takes place to maintain data integrity.

Why Blockchain as a Service?

  • As Blockchain projects currently last only 4-12 weeks on average, it does not make sense to spend a similar amount of time on launching them.
  • Shift from CapEx costs to OpEx budgets.
  • Those initiating a Blockchain project usually don’t know which tools they will ultimately need later on. These costs are therefore not foreseeable. In the Cloud, users have a whole range of tools at their disposal and pay only for the duration of their use of the tool.
  • For a company to be able to set up its own Blockchain environment in the Cloud, special know-how is required. As this knowledge is not scalable, it makes more sense for companies to invest in an as-a-service product than in their own resources.
