Deloitte unveils demonstrational platform for blockchain solutions

‘Big Four’ consulting giant Deloitte has introduced a new mobile demo platform for blockchain-based prototyped solutions.
Dubbed "Blockchain in a Box" (BIAB), the mobile, self-contained technology platform has been designed to provide intuitive, tangible blockchain demonstrations and experimentations.
According to a press release dated August 19, the platform can host blockchain-based solutions across four small-form-factor compute nodes and three video displays, as well as networking components that enable integration with external services, such as traditional cloud technologies. Each compute node accepts Secure Digital (SD) card media, which allows rapid selection and exchange of demo solutions tailored to specific client needs.
Linda Pawczuk, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and U.S. blockchain leader, said that the solution has been developed in response to growing client interest in understanding blockchain capabilities in live interactions.
"What's often misunderstood about blockchain is that it is an entirety of a technology solution — when in reality, it's a technology component that enables larger business applications and approaches. Our mobile demonstration is practical, tactical and most importantly, tangible to clients,” she added.
The solution has already been showcased to a number of clients as well as the broader blockchain and emerging technology community at multiple conferences, including Consensus 2019.
"Each time we have used the BIAB to facilitate exploration, the reaction is that of curiosity and excitement where the audience leaves with a deeper understanding of blockchain and how the use cases are implemented," said Chih-Wei Yi, principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP. "It helps to demystify blockchain and is a refreshing and well-grounded approach versus traditional slideware-based demonstrations."
