What exactly is Blockchain and should your business invest in it? We offer consultancy to help you answer these questions through presentations, Q&A, reports or workshops customised to your business. We will:

  1. Explain the technology so that you have a good grasp of what Blockchain is, from layperson’s terms to in-depth technical analysis
  2. Analyse your business requirements as they relate to Blockchain: to share information with other parties where there is limited trust
  3. Thus help you decide whether there is a business case for you to invest in Blockchain, compared to established alternative technologies

We’ll be frank. Many of the claims made for Blockchain are overblown. In most cases, there is no compelling need for it. And widely used Blockchain platforms present many disadvantages. We’re impartial: neither selling Blockchain technology nor partnered with anyone who does.

But your business might be an exception. Wouldn’t it be best to know for sure whether you need to pay attention?

Our Blockchain consultancy is provided by Tim Kindberg who has a PhD in distributed computer systems. He designs and builds platforms in the cloud. He is co-author of Distributed Systems – Concepts and Design, a widely used university textbook, and wrote the chapters on distributed consensus and related problems, covering nearly 40 years of research from which Blockchain has sprung. He has given many invited talks on Blockchain and other topics in distributed computing.

Interested? Please get in touch.

“Tim Kindberg’s presentation on Blockchain went down extremely well and was certainly a highlight of IOP Publishing’s PubCon18 conference. After speaking to colleagues working across our specialist publishing programmes – journals, ebooks, science journalism and conference proceedings – it is clear that Tim helped a lot of people get a solid understanding of what blockchain is, as well as its limitations.”
