Overall Satisfaction with Kaleido

We and our clients have used Kaleido to build a consortium in the financial services industry. The Kaleido platform and the incredible team behind it have been our one-stop shop for blockchain-as-a-service solutions.
  • Ease-of-use (e.g. fast and intuitive onboarding)
  • Security (e.g. customized security control, advanced security built in, and high degree of expertise on Kaleido team)
  • Plug-and-play solutions and flexibility (e.g. large library of ready-to-go "Kaleido Services")
  • Third-party integrations and partnerships (e.g. Corda, AWS, Azure, Hyperledger Besu, etc.)
  • Would like to see Kaleido ramp up their marketing/visibility so that they have more name recognition with new clients.
  • 96% user satisfaction so far -- very impressed
Kaleido is generations ahead of IBM Blockchain Platform. Once we took a closer look at Kaleido, it was an easy choice. In our experience, Kaleido's team has blown IBM out of the water in terms of technical sophistication, thought leadership, and ease of use. In particular, the volume and quality of pre-integrated enterprise and B2B services in Kaleido allows for a democratized blockchain-as-a-service experience -- even a student or beginner could set up an enterprise consortium with Kaleido's interface and tools. By contrast, IBM Blockchain Platform had a clunkier user experience (including interface and member on boarding process), with fewer advanced features and integrations (e.g. lower quality options for creating smart contracts and digital assets). We also interacted with IBM Blockchain Platform's team and found their skills and perspectives to be more generic and less up-to-date. Frankly, we lost valuable time by starting on IBM Blockchain Platform.
Usability is one of Kaleido's shining features.
Their customer support has been very strong throughout the implementation.

Kaleido is well-suited for all consortiums-as-a-service and blockchain-as-a-service use cases. Specific areas where we believe Kaleido can shine through: ecosystem development, payment networks, trade finance, shipping and logistics, government and multilateral partnerships, and electronic data interoperability. Our clients are also using or considering Kaleido in other areas. Clients working with AWS, Azure, Corda, and Hyperledger Besu will benefit from Kaleido's extensive services, integrations, and partnerships. More broadly, Kaleido seems to be a great choice whenever technical sophistication, an easy-to-use interface, and pre-integrated services are needed in a blockchain-based consortium.
