Filament’s New Blockchain Development Kit and Blockchain Consulting Services are the Beginning of Your Enterprise Blockchain Journey
Blocklet Foundation Kit and Accelerator Services help get distributed ledger technology at the edge of the IoT up and running in a few days.
In the world of enterprise blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT), it is safe to say that a lot has happened in the last year. According to a new report from MarketsandMarkets, the blockchain and IoT market is poised to grow nearly 100% annually for the foreseeable future. We are not surprised.
At Filament, we see first-hand just how quickly this market is evolving. Companies are already much more educated on blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT) than they were even six months ago. In fact, we’re finding that the embedded developer community has become increasingly interested in gaining a hands-on experience with our blockchain solutions for the IoT.
Because of this, today we were pleased to launch our new blockchain development kit for embedded and hardware IoT developers called the Blocklet Foundation Kit. Out of the box, it provides users the ability to quickly evaluate and see how IoT devices and sensors at the edge can integrate and securely transact on a blockchain.
The kit is intended to serve as starting point for the enterprise and industrial IoT blockchain journey. From here, proof of concept (POC) and pilot projects can be created that lead to successful production deployments.
Going a step further to support our customers that are either just getting started or already on the path to POC, pilot, or production deployment, Filament also today introduced a blockchain consulting services package. The Accelerator Services package addresses five phases to help guide companies from initial exploration all the way through deployment: discover, explore, experiment, assess, and adopt. We will help customers identify which phase they are in and where best to begin their journey.
As knowledge continues to deepen and more real-world experience is gained, the value created at the intersection of IoT and blockchain will become increasingly evident. We’re excited to be part of this entire process from start to finish. Working with companies that are discovering the power of this transformational technology is our greatest reward.
