This session will delve into the history, structure, and fundamentals of blockchain technologies, types of blockchains, and their current applications in the market. How blockchain technology can act as a blueprint for a new economy, whether it is in fintech, healthcare, supply chain, real estate or energy swim lanes. How do blockchains swim and live in the new ecosystems with permissioned or permission less blockchains, embracing a new process flow? In this presentation, we explore the organization, the peers, the network, the smart contracts, the applications invoking smart contracts, and finally how transactions flow into the network. With a metaphor of the sea, we will delve into theoretical constructs and then move into the nuts and bolts of designing a system with Oracle Blockchain Cloud Service.

During this presentation will show you how to take a requisition to a Bid and then to a PO. The main emphasis will be on the Bid Piece. First, we share with you how to create a requisition by shopping from "My Stores" and submitting for approval. Once it is approved, we will go to the Buyer Work Center and create a new solicitation with the outcome of Standard Purchase Order using templates, updating variable values, and them submit for approval. After approval we will Publish Bid, Manage Abstracts and Forms, and then Publish Abstracts. We will invite multiple Suppliers to this Bid and show you how a Supplier utilizes Sourcing Supplier to bid on the new solicitation. Once the supplier submits a bid, we will mix things up a little and show you how the Buyer can create an amendment. Now that we’ve created an amendment the Supplier will need to acknowledge the amendment, and reply using the Sourcing Module. After the Supplier acknowledges the amendment we will close and award the solicitation. Finally, we will share with you how we turn it into a Purchase Order.
