The telecoms company’s blockchain-based suite plans to develop the digitalization of enterprise customers’ business processes, noting that industries including manufacturing, retail, and healthcare can utilize the solutions.

Andy Daudelin, vice president at AT&T, said in the press release that blockchain technology is “transforming the way many companies conduct business,” adding:

“Blockchain improves security and enables better management of transactions through complex processes.”

Also in August, IBM, together with Danish transport and logistics giant Maersk, had successfully launched a blockchain solution involving 94 organizations and 154 million shipping events, Cointelegraph reported.
