At DSI, our commitment to Digital Transformation through our eForms Lightning System allows companies to record digital information about assets, processes, work instructions, and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). The system uses a traditional relational database to keep a ‘rolling’ operations ledger against these assets.
What we mean by ‘rolling’ is that we only write to this database table and never edit data once it is in the data table; immutable if you will. We allow our system to append information to the digital assets and then like an accountant’s financial transaction ledger, and the system can replay every item ever written against the asset. A fully transparent database table of everything I need to know about the assets, procedures, or SOPs. Nice!
In Part 1, available here, I introduced the idea of using the technology used by Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies for the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. In the first part, I talked about two of the four key aspects, Decentralization and Trust. Lets wrap up the discussion with Blockchain and Private and Public Keys.
Bitcoin, the internet money founded by Satoshi Nakamoto back in 2009 is rapidly gaining in popularity. The electronic currency (also known as cryptocurrency) attained a further endorsement when in April 2017 Japan announced that they would recognize Bitcoin as legal tender. That single action legitimized Cryptocurrencies around the world, and the popularity and reputation of cryptocurrencies are likely to increase as more countries adopt them. However, there is more to Bitcoin; it is the basis for many technologies favored by business media companies and corporate boardrooms everywhere.
We see it every day. The access to information is the key to businesses making informed decisions about their manufacturing processes and the employee workflows. Often, only companies with deep operating budgets can afford to purchase information systems that may or may not have an electronic logbook and employ IT professional to both help and empower these operations and decisions with actionable data.
