商业 | LINFINITY布局日本市场,构建“智能供应链”

作为世界第三大经济体的日本,之于区块链技术与数字货币的发展与推动,其政府及社会一直保持着一种包容的态度。随着区块链技术应用场景的增多,区块链技术在日本的实际应用也越来越广泛。因此,包括供应链管理、溯源、支付和汇款在内的传统行业也渐渐融入“区块链+”的应用模式,正在各个领域不断试行发展。

智慧工厂是现代工厂信息技术发展的集大成者。在未来工业4.0时代,客户的个性化需求越来越广泛,这便促使了制造业内部的供应链必须建立一套相应的智能化系统,来满足消费者不断增长地物质需求。

(Anndy Lian阐述智能供应链解决方案)

以新思想、新技术和新技能推动传统企业转型升级是生产力进一步增长的关键动力。为了顺应这新一轮发展趋势,传统制造业需将物联网、大数据和人工智能技术有机结合,为构建“智慧工厂”打下重要基础。值得注意的是,作为“智慧工厂”枢纽的“智能供应链系统”也将在提升各系统效率与协助方面发挥出重要作用。

LINFINITY基于区块链防伪溯源的技术特点,将物联网与人工智能的优势进行整合,从而打造出智能供应链系统。它可灵活地支持与配置相关供应链的需求,对生产中的资源进行按需分配与实时监控,最大程度上提升了生产效率。

LINFINITY CEO AnndyLian指出,“将区块链技术和人工智能运用于“智能供应链”的构建,对LINFINITY来说是一个新机遇与新挑战。作为“智慧工厂”重要组成部分的一环,“智能供应链系统”需要与其他智能系统进行有效协作,以促成对传统供应链问题的综合解决方案。”

据悉,日本互联网金融巨头SBI对于区块链技术地研发一直处于积极地态度,所涉及投资的公司有Orb、 R3、 Ripple、 Kraken、 Coinplug、Veem,、Wirex 和Bitflyer之多投资领域涵盖了包括交换、汇款、银行块链联盟、国家统计系统等。

与此同时,传统金融部门也开始加速了区块链技术的使用和布局。作为日本瑞穗金融集团(Mizuho Financial Group Of Japan)子公司的瑞穗银行(MizuhoBank),早前就已经联合日本IBM共同开发一套连锁交易与金融平台,从而提高相关供应链和贸易流程的效率。

(Herbriller产品) 

LINFINITY凭借其在日本护发品牌Herbriller的成功实践,已在传统物理防伪基础上,搭建出了以科技防伪为依托的区块链防伪溯源解决方案。这将为传统企业转型提供更多可能性同时,也将弥补传统供应链系统在未来“智能制造”趋势下的种种缺失。

LINFINITY Expands Its Footprint in Japan to Create An Intelligent Supply Chain System for Smart Factories

Since its inception, Japan, as the third largest economy in the world, has always been very inclusive regarding the promotion and development of blockchain technology. With the application scenarios for blockchain technology increasing, blockchain technology in Japan is gradually becoming of greater practical use. The application model of “blockchain plus” is constantly being piloted in various fields as a result, including for supply chain management, source tracking, and payments and remittances.

Smart factories are the latest and greatest technologies to emerge from the myriad developments in information technology in modern factories. In the current Industry 4.0 era, the individualized needs of customers are becoming more and more extensive. This adaptation to the ever-growing needs of consumers requires the logistical management within the manufacturing enterprise to create a more intelligent and flexible system. In order to comply with this new round of developments in information technology – such as the Internet of Things (IoT), big data, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) – the building of “smart factories” and the use of “smart logistics” is an inevitable trend to embrace when promoting the development of productivity.

(LINFINITY CEO Anndy Lian introduces intelligent supply chain solution)

Mr. Anndy Lian, CEO of LINFINITY, pointed out that blockchain technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology are also a new field of challenges for LINFINITY in the construction of “smart factory”-based supply chains. As an integral part of smart factories, an intelligent supply chain system needs to be interfaced with other intelligent systems to form an integrated solution to traditional supply-chain issues.

Driving reform with new ideas, technologies and skills remains the key engine for further growth in productivity. LINFINITY’s blockchain-based anti-counterfeiting and traceability supply chain system is equipped with innovative IoT technology, which has unique advantages in both cyber-security and traditional security management thanks to its inherent traceability. It supports flexible and configurable supply chain management strategies, enables users to achieve real-time on-demand production, and achieves optimal planning of the various links within the supply chain, all of which help to contribute to the advancement towards maximum efficiency within the extended supply chain system of a growing enterprise.

In its recent announcement, Japan’s Internet finance giant SBI has always been very active in investing in blockchain technology, with investments in various key companies: Orb, R3, Ripple, Kraken, Coinplug, Veem, Wirex, and Bitflyer. This diversification of investments covers multiple fields of blockchain application, including exchanges, remittances, bank blockchain alliances, blockchain solutions, and so on. At the same time, the traditional financial sector is also beginning to accelerate its use of blockchain technology. Mizuho Bank, a subsidiary of the Mizuho Financial Group of Japan, has been working together with the Japanese contingency of IBM to jointly develop a blockchain trading and finance platform. Based on blockchain solutions, Mizuho aims to increase the efficiency of both supply chain and trade-related processes.

(Herbriller Essence)

With its successful practice for Japanese haircare brand – Herbriller, LINFINITY is adopting a number of strategic and vision-based approaches and practices to help traditional industry in this historical transformation and will provide a full range of technical supports with its blockchain-based anti-counterfeiting and traceability solutions to the current shortcomings experienced within traditional supply-chain methods of logistics and procurement.
