THINK Panel Discussion – May 6, 2020

Discussion on TYS as a new blockchain-based solution for supplier information management.

As part of the 2020 THINK Digital Event Experience, Praveen Rao, Digital Supply Chain Executive for IBM, will lead a panel discussion about Trust Your Supplier as a new blockchain based solution for a faster way to qualify, onboard and manage suppliers. This session will be available for viewing on demand (#7151) beginning May 6, 2020.

Panelists include:

  • Bob Murphy, Chief Procurement Officer, IBM
  • Praveen Rao, Digital Supplychain Executive, IBM
  • James Gellert, Chairman and CEO, RapidRatings
  • Brian Farley, Senior Director, Partnership Solutions Strategy, Dun and Bradstreet
  • Emily Rakowski, Chief Marketing Officer, EcoVadis

In these uncertain times, new supply chain realities are forcing businesses to urgently reassess their supply base. No businesses can afford to have inefficient supplier qualification and on-boarding processes, but any increase in due diligence risk is unacceptable. To address these unprecedented challenges, IBM and Chainyard have created Trust Your Supplier (TYS), a blockchain-enabled solution to speed the process for buyers, suppliers and external validators. Join this panel discussion to hear from IBM’s Chief Procurement Officer and other executives from Dun & Bradstreet (D&B), EcoVadis and RapidRatings on how TYS uniquely enables efficient supplier on-boarding and other benefits.
