Digital Asset announced Monday that it teaming up with Google Cloud to provide a set of tools and services for solutions architects wanting to develop blockchain applications without having to code them from scratch.

Through the partnership, Digital Asset will provide both software tools and support to developers entering the space, according to a press release.

Google Cloud has also joined Digital Asset's developer program private beta, letting Google Cloud developers access the Digital Asset Modeling Language (DAML) software development kit (SDK).

Digital Asset further plans to grow its DAML platform-as-a-service (PaaS) program through the collaboration, by providing a "fully-managed solution" to aid developers trying to test or launch blockchain applications. The service will be available to developers through Google Cloud's application marketplace.

Digital Asset chief executive Blythe Masters said in a statement that the collaboration will make it easier for developers exploring the technology:

"We're partnering with Google Cloud to provide developers with a full stack solution so they can unleash the potential for web-paced innovation in blockchain. This will reduce the technical barriers to DLT application development by delivering our advanced distributed ledger platform and modelling language to Google Cloud."

Similarly, Google Cloud Financial Services Platform head Leonard Law said the technology giant was "delighted to innovate" alongside Digital Asset.

"DLT has great potential to benefit customers not just in the financial services industry, but across many industries, and we're excited to bring these developer tools to Google Cloud," he added.
