Likelihood to Recommend

IBM Blockchain Platform

Very useful in being able to set up, operate, manage and govern a blockchain network. This is useful to get started quickly, so as to focus on the value-adds that blockchain provides. A way in which it can be improved would be providing more educational/academic licenses to get students and academics more involved.

Cons

IBM Blockchain Platform

  • Sometimes when I try to instantiate a chain code, it won't let me and the error messages aren't clear so I can't work on a solution
  • When a peer is not working, it's hard to know why just from the console

SAP HANA Cloud

  • SAP HANA Cloud is a database as a service and has some growth and maturity to go through before it is as powerful as the on-premises HANA database.
  • As a cloud tool, it has some of the drawbacks of the cloud around governance and ownership of data, which may not be ideal for some situations and some clients due to legal/regulatory regimes.

Usability

IBM Blockchain Platform

IBM Blockchain Platform 8.0
Based on 1 answer
Overall it is very useful. But some basic understanding of blockchain terminology and nomenclature is necessary. For instance, realizing that a Certificate Authority must be provisioned before a Peer because the Peer needs to be registered with the Certificate Authority. These things are a little more obtuse to those who are not familiar with the blockchain platform.

Usability has been solid sofar, as well as the ease of setting up the SAP HANA Cloud instance. If you are a current user of HANA on-prem, you should feel straight at home.

As we haven't used the support for SAP HANA Cloud yet, we can't really comment on this. The documentation however has helped us a lot.

Alternatives Considered

IBM Blockchain Platform

The use of Hyperledger Fabric from the IBM Blockchain Platform is a clear advantage against the other platforms, because [it] is an open standard and it is more efficient because of the centralized ordering service.
