Cegeka is launching a free DIY blockchain starter’s kit that makes the technology more accessible for companies. Cegeka strongly believes in the possibilities of blockchain and finds there is keen interest in the market. Yet, the threshold is often too high for companies to invest in it. It is therefore launching a DIY manual for companies to help them overcome this concern.
Proof of concept in a week, pilot in a month, product in a year
The DIY manual consists of an open source proof-of-concept framework and a concrete step-by-step plan that companies can use to discover in a simple, low-threshold manner whether and how blockchain can contribute to their organization. IT managers and software developers can get down to work immediately, and even people with minimal programming knowledge can experiment with the case study that is provided for the recycling industry. If the company is convinced of a proof of concept after that experimental phase, Cegeka can expand it to a pilot within a month, and to a finished product that generates real business value within a year.
Missing piece of the puzzle
A pioneer in applications with exponential technologies such as blockchain, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things, has been developing and gaining experience with blockchain applications for years and has been able to prove their added value for various clients. The technology service provider has noted, however, that certain misconceptions still linger about the technology and that its possible applications are not sufficiently known by companies. As a result, introducing blockchain is still too big a step.
Sander van Loosbroek, Director, Distributed Ledger Technology at Cegeka confirms, “We regularly find that blockchain can be the missing piece of the puzzle for many companies, which can have a major and immediate impact on their business. We want to help companies find that missing piece of the puzzle by making our tools for developing a blockchain proof of concept available for everyone. Where the cost of developing such an application used to run into hundreds of thousands of euros, it can now be done with the Cegeka tools free of charge in less than a week.”
