Mary Ann Holder and the climb of a blockchain multiparty network ecosystems professional? MaryAnn Holder is Chief Marketing Officer at One Network Enterprises, a provider of the blockchain-enabled network platform, The Real Time Value Network. Back in 2002, Greg Brady, a supply chain visionary and Ranjit Notani a pioneer in multi-enterprise collaboration technology came to the conclusion that the traditional paradigm of business-to-business collaboration built around enterprise-centric software was fundamentally flawed. Businesses must take an outside-in network view and together serve the end consumer. In May 2003, they acquired Elogex, a cloud-based logistics software company, and founded One Network Enterprises with a vision to create consumer-driven business networks. They developed a network platform that enabled entire business communities to collaborate and work together to serve the consumer. Brady and Notani brought the network way of conducting business just as LinkedIn did so to managing professional contacts. They re-imagined how business software is built, delivered, and used for today’s dynamic and highly inter-connected world.
If we need to find ideas on how to engage all these different audience members especially as technology and people evolve, do you look at other industries and see what they’re doing? That’s a good question because we’re evolving so fast. The landscape is changing really quickly. I think people’s consumption is changing very quickly. We look at a lot of different factors. We’re increasingly a social media world and is very heavily influenced by social media, the characters, and the stars and the tenants of that generation that has been raised on a social media platform. It’s multi-generational so we’re we’re consuming things in smaller sound bytes but that doesn’t mean that the smaller sound bytes can’t something very very applicable and really relevant to what your needs are. We look at the social media world. We look at the music world. We look at the fashion world. B2B, oftentimes, we might get stuck in sort of an ivory tower. But, if you look beyond that into the B2C world how consumers are consuming in the consumer market, it really leads in terms of what the next generation of B2B is going to adopt. You can call it a bullwhip effect.
The ONE Platform supports a variety of multi-tenancy models such as classic multi-tenant as well as network multi-tenant and is credited by customers for delivering rapid results at half the cost of traditional technology approaches. Leveraging AI and Blockchain, the multi-party digital network has more than 60,000 businesses onboarded globally and is the largest business operating network worldwide. “As the largest supply chain network in the world, we are thrilled to be named a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant and to see them emphasize the importance of multienterprise solutions and their impact on the modern supply chain,” said MaryAnn Holder, Chief Marketing Officer, One Network. “With a vast number of retailers, distributors, manufacturers, carriers and third-party logistics providers onboarded, the RTVN offers a disruptive technology and business model that enables our community to slash inventory, improve service levels, and speed up the supply chain in order to outpace the competition.”
Multiparty networks have all the key elements missing from blockchain 1.0, including: Scalability – using a scalable grid architecture, multiparty network support tens of thousands of trading partners and the transaction volume that entails. Confidentiality – because they are built using multiparty permissions frameworks with granular and role-based permissions to ensure secure data access. Functionality – by providing powerful, multiparty apps such as logistics management that run on the network and write to a blockchain. Community Master Data Management (MDM) – that manages and synchronizes data across different systems and parties to ensure data is trusted. Combined, these features enable powerful functionality that can support all parties, including buyers, sellers, fulfillment, and logistics partners via a shared app. This allows all parties to transact while showing only the relevant authorized slice of the data to each partner.
MaryAnn Holder on One Network’s Intelligent Control Tower: “One Network’s global network lies at the core of its value proposition and underpins its unified planning and execution capabilities. With over 90,000 global businesses on their network, users have the opportunity of collaboration with every other party on the network, and can form new partnerships easily, since required data streams have already been linked to the global network and can be shared through a permissibility framework. One Networks’ approach also enables business partners to improve performance in supply chain planning and execution. Forecasts and plans can automatically adjust to match supply with demand, while balancing capacity constraints, costs, and service levels. In the event of a disruption, AI enhancements provide users with prescriptive actions and can make adjustments to execution processes automatically.”
“While many vendors just talk about bringing automation to their supply chain planning and inventory optimization software, One Network has customers that are live and using the capabilities to extract value from the technology,” said Seth Lippincott, lead analyst of the report. “By providing an integrated platform on which customers can run their supply chains end-to-end, the vendor is shortening the distance between planning and execution, providing a holistic view of inventory and the ability to optimize stocking levels. Nucleus expects the value One Network delivers to continue to improve as more customers adopt its automation and intelligent capabilities.” MaryAnn Holder-Browne, Chief Marketing Officer of One Network: “We are thrilled to once again be recognized by Nucleus Research”.
