Building Data Models for a Procure-to Pay (P2P) Blockchain Application

Dr. Prashanth Southekal, DBP-Institute

Blockchain is a distributed and decentralized ledger or database that is shared across a public or private computing network and usually without a central authority. Architecturally, enabling a Blockchain application rests on a shared data model for the secure management of smart contracts as trust in paramount in distributed applications. In this presentation, Prashanth Southekal will present his Data Modelling architectural work on a Blockchain application in the procure-to-pay (P2P) domain in an Oil and gas pipeline company. The specific work within the P2P domain was on the 3-way match to enable the pipeline millers, coaters, shippers, the oil pipeline company, and the oil pipeline company’s client to efficiently collaborate. The Blockchain application developed was based on the Hyperledger Sawtooth protocol for building, deploying, and running distributed P2P ledgers.
