Overall Satisfaction with IBM Blockchain Platform

Our company uses IBM Blockchain Platform and Hyperledger Fabric as a backbone element of our service offerings. We use Hyperledger Fabric as part of an assurance process between various parties in high-value financial transactions where fraud and malfeasance risks weigh heavily. While Hyperledger Fabric is an excellent technology on its own, the IBM Blockchain Platform allows us to develop and test code far easier.
  • Local testing environment
  • Clear deployment strategy
  • Solid support team backup
  • Improve trust and loyalty by making the mechanism of lock-in less obtuse and more transparent.
  • Stay up to date with the latest releases of the FOSS hyper ledge fabric.
  • Make multi-cloud deployments easier.
  • Speed to market.
  • IBM has a longer history of experience with deploying Hyper Ledge Fabric in production with serious clients. This enables us to have great industry exposure and make better decisions. That same experience does not seem to exist with the other major cloud vendors and their native Managed blockchain services.
  • In many cases, competing products are just deploy scripts for the regular FOSS without any value-add.

Would you buy IBM Blockchain Platform again?


  • It's well suited to get rolling with hyper ledge fabric and prove business cases.
  • It's a great doorway to IBM's highly experienced engineering and business teams, who have active experience with prod deployments.
  • It's less appropriate once your business is running strongly in this Engineering dept. and you have in-house staff that has a great command of all of the HLF nuances.
