毕马威在澳大利亚、中国和日本推出DLT供应链工具

wuya 2019-11-29 12:03

 

四大会计师事务所毕马威正式在澳大利亚、中国和日本推出了一个基于区块链的跟踪和追踪平台。该公司于11月28日宣布,这款名为“毕马威起源”的工具旨在提高农业、制造业和金融服务等多个行业的透明度和可追溯性。


该新闻稿指出,毕马威在澳大利亚、中国和日本的客户进行了成功的试点后,才正式推出了毕马威。

 

试验参与者包括甘蔗种植者协会和SunRice


利用一些新兴技术,如区块链和物联网,毕马威Origin打算改善供应链流程。毕马威表示,该平台使贸易伙伴能够通过其供应链向终端用户传达产品数据,同时降低了操作的复杂性。


毕马威起源的试验参与者包括澳大利亚最大的品牌食品出口商之一SunRice、澳大利亚甘蔗种植者协会(澳大利亚甘蔗种植者的巅峰组织)和葡萄园米切尔葡萄酒公司(vineyard Mitchell Wines)。

 

区块链技术,以帮助满足日益增长的需求的可持续性


Canegrowers会员参与与创新高级经理Matt Kealley指出,区块链技术有潜力帮助满足农民不断增长的需求,以展示他们的可持续性实践:


“像毕马威origin这样的区块链解决方案,可以提供一个平台,让终端用户能够直接从种植者那里获得产品的可持续性认证。”


相反,普华永道(PwC)的一位农业企业高管最近辩称,区块链给人一种超市连锁店和消费者可以追溯的错觉,并指出实体入口不一定是万无一害的。

 

四大会计师事务所对区块链表现出了浓厚的兴趣


正如之前报道的那样,四大会计师事务所——德勤、普华永道、安永和毕马威——都对区块链技术的实施表示了浓厚的兴趣。据报道,2018年,这些公司的公共和私人审计占全球审计的50%以上,四大在加密和区块链方面的活动可能表明全球采用区块链的状态。


因此,这些公司中最新的区块链实施之一是EY的区块链公共基金平台,该平台于10月中旬推出。此前,普华永道与共识支持的身份管理协议uPort合作,在英国金融业开发基于区块链的身份管理。

 

Big Four audit firm KPMG has officially launched a blockchain-based track and trace platform in Australia, China and Japan. Dubbed KPMG Origins, the tool is designed to increase transparency and traceability of processes in multiple industries such as agriculture, manufacturing and financial services, the firm announced on Nov. 28.

 

The official launch of KPMG Origins in Australia, China and Japan comes after successful pilot implementations with clients in those countries, the press release notes.

 

Trial participants include Cane Growers and SunRice

 

Incorporating a number of emerging technologies like blockchain and the Internet of Things, KPMG Origin intends to improve supply chain processes. The platform enables trading partners to communicate product data across their supply chains to end users while reducing operational complexities, KPMG stated.

 

KPMG Origins’ trial participants include the SunRice, one of Australia’s largest branded food exporters, Canegrowers, a peak body for Australian sugarcane growers, and vineyard Mitchell Wines.

 

Blockchain tech to help meet the increasing demand for sustainability

 

Matt Kealley, senior manager at membership engagement and innovation at Canegrowers, noted that blockchain technology has the potential to help meet the increasing demand on farmers to demonstrate their sustainability practices:

 

“A blockchain solution, such as KPMG Origins, could provide a platform which will enable end-users to capture the sustainability credentials of the product directly from the grower to customer.”

 

Conversely, an agribusiness exec at PwC recently argued that blockchain gives an illusion of traceability to supermarket chains and consumers, noting that physical points of entry are not necessarily foolproof.

Big Four auditors have expressed strong interest in blockchain

 

As previously reported, all the Big Four companies — Deloitte, PwC, EY and KPMG — have expressed strong interest in blockchain technology implementations. As the firms’ public and private audits have reportedly accounted for more than 50% global audits in 2018, the Big Four’s activity in crypto and blockchain could indicate the state of global blockchain adoption.

 

As such, one of the most recent blockchain implementations among the firms is EY’s blockchain platform for public funds, which launched in mid-October. Previously, PwC partnered with ConsenSys-backed identity management protocol uPort to develop blockchain-based identity management in the United Kingdom's financial sector.
