Frederik de Breuck, Head of Fujitsu’s Blockchain Innovation Center in Brussels, Belgium, comments: “Blockchain and other DLTs hold the potential to transform organizations and entire industries. 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.”
Fujitsu is a world-leader in DLTs, holding close to 50 patents concerning blockchain and is deeply involved in the development of DLTs, with an emphasis on Hyperledger Fabric. Hyperledger Fabric is a blockchain framework implementation and one of the Hyperledger projects hosted by The Linux Foundation, a consortium that is developing cross-industry advanced enterprise software for business applications. Fujitsu is a Premier member, sits on the Governing Board and is a technical steering committee member of Hyperledger. Others Premier members include Intel and Deutsche Börse.
Hyperledger is a project hosted by The Linux Foundation and Fujitsu is already working on several co-creation proof of concept (PoC) projects based on Hyperledger Fabric for enterprise customers. The joint goal is to ensure the business value of use cases and provide the capability to progress rapidly beyond PoCs. The Fujitsu vision for blockchain goes further than this and is focused on building on the advantages of Hyperledger Fabric to create an enterprise-class blockchain framework. In support of this goal, Fujitsu now provides the Blockchain Platform Service. a ready-to-use “Blockchain as a Service”. This takes away the burden on enterprises of building their own end-to-end blockchain capabilities.
