IBM Blockchain Platform is well suited for scenarios where you need secure transactions, like in logistics, finance, legal agreements. Especially I think is well-suited for smart contracts between devices under the IBM IoT platform, and using Watson AI for predicting future scenarios. In this case, an end-to-end powerful platform can be created from sensor data to business insight.

    IBM

    The scalability and the good documentation, which is built on Hyperledger fabric--the most widespread corporate network--the possibility of integration with other cloud structures. Another interesting factor is the ability to add users in just minutes. An aspect valued by the developers teams was the VS Code extension. Finally, the control panel definitely simplifies the user experience.

    • It has a direct positive impact on ROI, and by eliminating intermediaries from the process, we saved the related cost, which makes funds transfer cheaper.
    • It's provided more simple back-office operations, which again has a direct positive impact on ROI by saving staff time and efforts in handling transactions.
