GFT launch ‘A blueprint for initiating business change using Blockchain’

The latter half of 2015 was a rollercoaster ride for those involved in the Blockchain phenomenon. In the financial services sector there was a rush of activity in the innovation space to prove Blockchain capabilities, with many service organisations rushing to release their new service or to introduce Blockchain into legacy processes to prove their capability. Most recently, the industry is beginning to realise the true potential of distributed ledger technologies and how this can disrupt traditional industries.

GFT have looked to address this by creating a lean Blockchain incubator to develop these ideas and produce a framework for success. In a new point-of-view entitled ‘A blueprint for initiating business change using Blockchain’, GFT specialists Nick Weisfeld, Julian Eyre and Nicolás González, alongside Applied Blockchain Co-Founder Adi Ari-Ben, have defined a blueprint of business and technology best practice, to help firms create their own successful Blockchain prototype.

The paper highlights that to create a Blockchain incubator, you need a platform that provides the framework for rapid selection of Blockchain ideas and the subsequent prototyping. As this is such a new but rapidly maturing field (technology and business process) there can be significant internal challenges to getting a project off the ground. It’s therefore crucial that you have the capacity to create a lean incubator to develop these ideas.
