Aidant Technologies, a data integration firm headquartered in Atlanta, GA, has joined the Blockchain in Transport Alliance(BiTA).

“Aidant Technologies is excited about the use of blockchain for smart contracts and transaction tracking. Blockchain has endless possibilities for increasing efficiency within transportation and supply chain verticals,” says Aidant Technologies founder Amit Kumar. “Aidant Technologies is disrupting communication patterns/protocols within the data integration space by pairing blockchain with our proprietary DI.Platform to give our clients cutting edge solutions.”

Aidant Technologies created the DI.Platform (Data Integration Platform). The DI.Platform is middleware agnostic and supports the majority of clients out of the box across various industries, solving many different integration challenges. Aidant said it believes in removing technology barriers and providing solutions that address real customer needs. Currently, Aidant is investing heavily in converting DI.Platform and its data integration capabilities to leverage the power of blockchain.

BiTA believes blockchain is one of the most significant developments for the industry since the creation of the internet. By providing more clarity and standards around blockchain through education and promotion of the technology, BiTA intends to be the leading blockchain voice for the industry.

Through engagement of the brightest minds from the most influential leaders in transportation, finance and technology, BiTA will build the first set of transportation industry-specific blockchain standards. BiTA is focused on providing educational resources and open forums to those in the industry interested in leading the evolution of the transport industry through the efficiencies offered in blockchain technology.

So many great transactional technologies that proliferate our industry are grounded in commonly accepted standards - including BOLs, EDI, ISO, and ASCII. Like these standards, BiTA believes blockchain will benefit from having the same set of market standards.

Founded in August 2017, the Blockchain in Transport Alliance is a forum for promotion, education, and encouragement to develop and adopt blockchain applications in the transport, transportation, and logistics industry. BiTA’s goal is for members to participate, discuss, create, and adopt industry standard uses of blockchain applications and to provide clarity and direction for the development of blockchain technology in the transport industry in a manner that will create efficiency, transparency, and foster trust. BiTA standards are intended to create a common framework to help organizations develop and adopt blockchain technology.
