We, at Algodone, have been talking for a while now about the oncoming of the new business model
for the semiconductor industry, “Silicon-as-a-Service”.
 
It is based on the insight and belief that for the last couple of decades, the world is moving rapidly
towards an as-a-service economy. To stay nimble and relevant in the fast-changing world, the
semiconductor companies also need to reinvent themselves and adapt.
 
Following this vision, Algodone’s founders, Jerome, Gael and Lionel, built the company and
developed the Silicon Activation Licensing Technology (SALT TM) that is to become the enabler for
this transition. It has been 3 years in the making, and the day we have all been waiting for has finally
come.
 
September 10th, 2018 marks a ground-breaking moment that our vision has come true. SALT, which
symbolizes a necessary ingredient for our everyday life, has been deployed in real customer
production.
 
In this exciting tale, it takes three to tango - three remarkable innovators working together to pave the
way for all others to follow –

Oliver Gunasekara, CEO of NGCodec, said in the press release: “Today, our customers want
instantaneous access to our technology and the ability to pay only for what they use.” Indeed, today
consumers’ on-demand, pay-per-use, anytime and anywhere mindset is driving and reshaping the
broad market place.

With NGCodec blazing the trail and showing the industry that Silicon-as-a-Service can be done, both
in terms of business model, and in term of the necessary enabling technologies, it won’t be long before
other companies in AI, Automotive, Healthcare, Education, and IoT spaces, where security and user
experiences matter, follow suit.

September 10th is the teachers’ holiday in China. It is fitting that this day, with this announcement, also
signifies a teaching moment for the industry, that you too can be brave and adopt Silicon-as-a-service. 

We, Algodone and Accelize, working together, are ready for you to take your business to the next
level.
