Avasant Analyst Insights

Practice Maturity

  • UST Global has taken an agile approach to their digital practice, including blockchain, and built tailor made solutions for a small set of established clients rather than developing broad-based industry specific offerings. This has helped them develop a number of use cases in their focus markets of Spain and Latin America.
  • Even with a lean practice, UST Global has been able to leverage its tailor made approach to drive projects to the Production stage. They’ve achieved traction in the Energy sector, with multiple projects with a leading European energy company, and in the banking industry with some Latin America-focused banks.
  • Provenance, payments and digital identity are some of the areas where UST Global has distinctive use cases.
