IT Giant Fujitsu Is Launching a ‘Ready-to-Go’ Blockchain Service
IT giant Fujitsu is starting a new consultancy service that it claims will provide a “ready-to-go” minimal viable product in only five days.
According to The Register, prices for the service start at $9,900 and will include everything from basic introductory classes on blockchain technology to assessments of the proposed use case and the construction of a prototype by day five.
From that point, customers can select to fork out more cash to have the product further developed or walk off together with the work as it stands out.
Chris Pilling, lead architect at Fujitsu’s Blockchain Innovation Centre, which opened back in March, explained,”It would be good to say, yes, we’ve fulfilled the proof of company and they wish to get the global blockchain team engaged… but we allow the customer to go away and play with the prototype”
This”proof of business” approach, compared to some proof-of-concept, is a method for clients to conduct through a business process which focuses on creating”company value” and prevents frequent”drawbacks” of blockchain projects, according to Frederik de Breuck, head of their Blockchain Innovation Centre.
The general aim of the service is either to provide a fast method to kick off new blockchain development or to improve blockchain projects already in development.
In accordance with Fintech Finance, de Breuck clarified:
“Inspired by high levels of interest from our customers, we have created this ready-to-go package not only to jump-start the customers’ blockchain efforts but also to review and improve existing projects. Available immediately across the EMEIA region, we expect this assessment to have a major impact on unlocking blockchain’s potential for business use cases.”
The Japanese multinational holds close to 50 different patents on blockchain technology according to BankingTech. It has also established several different blockchain-related services in the last year, including systems for data storage and data exchange.
A founding member of blockchain consortium Hyperledger, Fujitsu is presently helping to commercialize the group’s Fabric product. Described as a means to speed up the rate of transactions for high-performance use instances, the development is set for completion later this year.
