Blockchain

Decentralising data in the digital age

The Blockchain market is growing fast and should reach, more than 10 billion Euros worldwide by 2022, according to IDC. It could completely revolutionise practices and secure applications in all sectors.

 

Sopra Steria, the first to have detected the potential of Blockchain in 2014, created a global network of experts and is supporting its development in major French and European organisations.

Private Blockchain supporting a digital ecosystem

With the private Blockchain, firms now have numerous opportunities: enhanced security, reliability, transparency, improved traceability of transactions and simplified development thanks to automation and rationalisation.

 

This makes it a promising technology for safer and more resilient applications in all fields.

 

Wondering how to implement a Blockchain project in your company?

Our vision: « Start small and grow the ecosystem »

  • An agnostic approach: our experts work on several frameworks to offer you the right solution for each business case.
  • Emergence of new ecosystems: allowing your data to flow in a decentralised and secure Blockchain environment is essential.
  • Progressive development: before embarking your entire ecosystem, remember that the key to the success of a Blockchain project means testing and trying your project with a limited set of stakeholders

Blockchain’s industrialised approach

  • A strategy that mixes industrialisation and co-design: our experts rely on a set of pre-defined components (frameworks, canvas, toolkit) to initiate and adapt the project to your needs, with tailor-made co-design workshops.
  • Blockchain experts: as a pioneer in the field of Blockchain, Sopra Steria has trained more than 200 consultants in partnership with prestigious higher education institutes. We also have more than 30 client credentials.
  • An end-to-end offer: our teams support you starting from the scoping phase, with our Consulting activities, we work on identifying use cases, scoping then development, software development and running platforms.

Our expertise

  • 200 consultants, senior developer and architects trained in Blockchain, Hyperledfer, Ethereum, Quorum, Corda and IOTA protocols in 7 countries (France, United-Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Norway and India)
  • Two centres of excellence located in Noida (India) and Paris (France)
  • Technical and operational trainings (Business Analyst, Ethereum, Hyperledger, IOTA...)
  • A hundred use cases, releases and several prototypes developed.

Blockchain and the IoT: Sopra Steria partners with IOTA

Paris, 9 November 2017

Sopra Steria, a European leader in digital transformation, and IOTA, a German non-profit Foundation, are combining their talents to create a framework designed to optimise the security of connected objects.

Securing the IoT: a major challenge

The meteoric growth of the Internet of Things is a response to the constant demand for connectivity and new applications: simplifying everyday processes while creating new services. All sectors of activity are now impacted, whether health, transport or home automation. However, such progress brings with it more rigorous levels of control and verification: as denial-of-service attacks multiply, Europe is finding itself having to reconsider the security of the IoT and the networks used to fight this scourge. This observation led IOTA – a 100% open source innovation community – to mobilise the considerable know-how of its contributors to provide solutions for these new security needs. Blockchain not only addresses this need for security, but also practically demonstrates the tamper-proof nature of the identity of the connected objects – a real asset of this advanced technology.

Sopra Steria and IOTA: a win-win partnership

With the shared goal of securing IoT-specific information systems, Sopra Steria and IOTA have pooled their knowledge, skills and visions to create a framework.

With a pioneering track record in creating state-of-the-art Blockchain technology which is mature enough to be deployed on a large scale, IOTA has convinced Sopra Steria of its value thanks to its expertise in securing the links between connected objects.

For its part, Sopra Steria will not only provide access to a portfolio of specific customers within the industry, it will also allow IOTA to leverage its IoT skills and resources. This will enable IOTA to apply the full extent of Sopra Steria's extended security know-how to connected objects. Lastly, Sopra Steria has played a pioneering role as one of the first European integrators of Blockchain solutions, with many implementations to its credit.

Ultimately, the aim of this partnership is the creation of synergies between IOTA and Sopra Steria. Drawing on their respective skill sets, the two organisations aim to develop a range of increasingly efficient IoT-specific Blockchain solutions.

"Cybersecurity for connected objects remains a largely unexplored area, and that's where the most potential for making use of Blockchain lies," explains Alexandre Eich-Gozzi, Head of Blockchain Stream at Sopra Steria. "After all, the IoT is now an integral part of our everyday lives, and heightened security for terminals is an important issue. Benefits in the very near future will ensure that the partnership with IOTA drives the large-scale rollout of this Blockchain technology. "

"We're delighted to be partnering with Sopra Steria," adds David Sønstebø, co-founder of IOTA. "This partnership is confirmation of the legitimacy of IOTA, particularly with regard to the issue of IoT security. We've been pioneers in developing Blockchain technology; Sopra Steria has been one of the first to integrate it. So this is an entirely complementary partnership. We're keen to see the first practical results from this collaboration. "
