With this membership, we will be able to assist our customers in realizing their vision in implementing these solutions,” according to Madhusudhan KM, Chief Technology Officer, Mindtree.
Mindtree also has a strategic investment in the Blockchain space since 2016 and Hyperledger builds an important part of the investment. As a general member, Mindtree will also have access to training materials, use cases, solutions and whitepapers, which will be shared through the community of Hyperledger. Furthermore, Mindtree will also be accessible to the talented community with the domain of Hyperledger in order to build a team of architects, engineers and in-demand skills in Hyperledger technologies.
By collaborating with Hyperledger, Mindtree will also be able to evangelize the current Hyperledger blockchain-based solutions in developing new solutions.
“Mindtree’s large global footprint and ongoing investment in developing blockchain expertise make it a natural fit for our growing community,” according to Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger. “As enterprise blockchain adoption accelerates, companies that are committed to helping companies put the technologies into production will be a vital part of the ecosystem. We welcome the work Mindtree will do on this front.”
More than 270 organizations are part of the Hyperledger community, which includes large technology companies, startups, service providers and academics.
