CapGemini loads up on blockchain staff

CapGemini is to recruit 100 blockchain professionals within its financial services business unit by year-end, as central banks, financial institutions and technology firms begin to embrace the potential of the technology to drive transformative change within the industry.

The consultancy says it will use the additions to its core team of blockchain experts to provide a range of consulting and technology services including: feasibility studies, business case assessments, operating model design, advisory services on systems architecture and full-scale systems integration.

Thierry Delaporte, CEO of Capgemini’s financial services strategic business unit says: "Capgemini is collaborating with fintechs to develop innovative blockchain solutions on micro payments, syndicate loans, asset management and claims handling which Capgemini will implement as a preferred systems integrator.”

Earlier this year, PwC announced plans to build a 40-strong team of blockchain professionals by the end of the year to deal with increasing demand from banks for specialist expertise.
