IBM Blockchain Platform: Enterprise-ready for next-generation trusted transactions

With its enormous possibilities, blockchain technology has swiftly emerged as one of the most promising trends in recent times. Its distributed-ledger technology has widespread applications across every kind of digital record and transaction. As Ginni Rometty aptly put it, “What the internet did for communications, blockchain will do for trusted transactions.” Blockchain is now being used to transform processes and streamline transactions for everything from flowers, real estate and trade finance to education, insurance and medical services.

On August 22, 2017, IBM announced the general availability of the next generation of the IBM Blockchain Platform. The IBM Blockchain Platform is the industry’s first fully integrated, enterprise-ready production blockchain platform, complete with a suite of consulting and developer services. Available on IBM Cloud, the platform offers integrated development and management tools that allow multiple parties to jointly develop, govern, operate and secure blockchain networks to help enterprises accelerate blockchain adoption.

As a leader in blockchain, IBM is focused on developing enterprise-ready solutions that tackle the challenges of privacy, confidentiality, audibility, performance and scalability. Read a recent IDC report that explores IBM’s blockchain strategy and a recent Juniper Research report that compares IBM’s blockchain leadership among competitors. Additionally, IBM announced a major blockchain collaboration with Dole, Driscoll’s, Golden State Foods, Kroger, McCormick & Company, McLane Company, Nestlé, Tyson Foods, Unilever and Walmart to address food safety worldwide. The consortium will work with IBM to identify new areas where the global supply chain can benefit from blockchain.

The introduction of the IBM Blockchain Platform marks a pivotal milestone. It offers extensive opportunities for you as a Business Partner to address your clients’ challenges as they embark on their blockchain adoption journey. The extensively tested and piloted platform addresses a wide range of business and technical requirements around security, performance, collaboration and privacy that no other blockchain platform delivers today.
