Higher Performance with Blockchain Solutions

Blockchain: From buzzword to company practice

Making transactions visible

When developing a blockchain solution, there are many different challenges that need to be overcome at once. It is often difficult for customers as it's not their main expertise. Andreas Dittrich shows how T-Systems provides support with this.

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.
