The main product of this project is focused on the integration of blockchain-based solutions to current ERP systems. The worldwide application integration and middleware (AIM) software market continues to grow faster than the overall infrastructure software market at rate 7% annually, with revenue on pace to surpass $27 billion in 2017, without the upcoming demands in terms of blockchain based business integration. The global blockchain market size is expected to grow from USD 411.5 million in 2017 to USD 7,683.7 million by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 79.6%. Blockchain-as-a-Service could be key drivers for the growth of this market. As a result, they could accumulate significant share of profits in this market.
The Unibright have a full framework for blockchain based business integration. The central part of the Unibright ecosystem is the Unibright Contract Interface (UCI) that connects all parts of the Unibright framework. It consists of Workflow Designer, Lifecycle Manager, Explorer and Connector for Ethereum and SAP. All the components needed for the complete business integration lifecycle have been presented and are available for usage in the Ethereum blockchain. The Unibright Connector enables ERP-Systems, third-party legacy systems and custom build software to be part of the Unibright framework. In the medium term, we aim to support other blockchain technologies besides Ethereum, like Stratis, NEO, Hyperledger Fabric, etc. The project is going to establish a marketplace for third-party developers to offer tools for Unibright conformant smart contracts. In Q2 2018 beta version of Unibright connector to .NET and JAVA have to be developed. Complete production readiness would be in 2019.
The best way to explain the model of the project is Blockchain-as-a-Service platform. It is the first provider for a complete and unified framework for blockchain based business integration. The central part of the Unibright ecosystem is the Unibright Contract Interface (UCI) that connects all parts of the Unibright framework. Unibright Token is the only payment option to register Unibright conformant smart contracts. It is the only way of payment for project’s additional services, for example using the smart adapters to integrate existing ERP-System to the blockchain. A marketplace for add-ons that rely on the Unibright Contract Interface enables third-party developers to enhance the Unibright universe. Business specific templates or system specific smart adapters can be traded. Connecting business partners agreeing on the UCI via blockchain-technology and integrating their IT- and ERP-systems with respect to their business case specific needs. As a result, the project would create an ecosystem for blockchain business integration. Tokens would be a crucial part of this system and would be fuel for the future growth of the platform.
The project has clear and realistic goals for funding, which start from 2,200,000 USD up to 13,542,375 USD. In VC it equal to round A financing. Usually, project already has the first version of the final product at that stage and attract money for market expansion and further development of the project. However, for ICO market this valuation is fair. Moreover, the project has ICO agent, it will be managed by Ambisafe Financial. Also, the project has clear distribution of funds: at least 50% for platform development, up to 20% Template Generation for Business Use-Cases, 15% for PR and marketing, 15% setting up partnerships in the industry, bootstrapping pilot customers. However, the financial model for further years is not prepared, as a result, it is not possible to estimate profits from the project.
