Blockchain, as a decentralized information storage and processing system, is one of the major technologies that is taking over the digital world. With its advantages of speed, less resource requirements, heavy encryption, resistance to malicious attacks and an “always-on” nature, it is one of the best options for businesses to adapt their systems on.
Even with its immense potential to save time and money, the process of the technology’s adoption by businesses is still very slow. Apart from the plethora of start ups, only a few established and well reputed organizations have plans to use Blockchain to their advantage. The reason for that lays mostly in the lack of experience.
The technology is new and there are still not many programmers available. The simple case of high demand and low supply makes Blockchain developers too expensive to hire for the majority of firms. Merging existing ERP systems into Blockchain is also a very difficult process, as this requires very high expertise.
Selecting the right Blockchain technology makes it very difficult to switch over. Selecting one type and spending resources on the development of ERP only to find that the selected technology is not compatible down the road and must be redone on another chain is not feasible. What is more, switching over to any new technology or process means a heavy investment of time and resources in teaching employees who are not technologically adept and require constant training and supervision.
