WHAT THIS BLUEPRINT GUIDE COVERS

In the 2016 HfS Blueprint Guide to Emerging Blockchain Services In BFSI we evaluate the market for blockchain services and the offerings of some early explorer service providers. The report gives buyers a sense of what’s available today and where providers are evolving, so buyers can make decisions about emerging blockchain services engagements.

 

KEY MARKET DYNAMICS

  • Despite blockchain’s premise of peer-to-peer network asset transactions, companies right now are operating in private sandboxes, usually testing blockchain intra-company across different business units.
  • Lots of exploration, little operational execution. The market for blockchain services shows lots of promise but most engagements right now are companies experimenting with the technology and related business opportunities. There certainly are some blockchain engagements that have moved beyond proof-of-concept, but they are few and far between.
  • Questions of economics. How blockchain will scale, and how that affects security, storage, and performance – and ultimately how it affects the ROI of blockchain projects – are still being discovered.
  • Regulations and compliance guidance aren’t keeping up with blockchain’s potential. The technology is moving faster than regulatory agencies’ ability to monitor and define appropriate compliance requirements.

 

WHO SHOULD READ THIS REPORT

Executive leaders and business unit leaders, shared services and outsourcing and procurement managers, advisors, investors in the banking/financial services/insurance industry who want to explore blockchain and related services.
