Consulting giant Accenture unveils a new “interoperability node” of blockchain platforms which enables two or more blockchain enabled ecosystems to integrate, easing the wider enterprise adoption of digital ledger technology.
Revealed at the 2018 annual Sibos conference, the new interoperability solution enables business process synchronization between four major enterprise platforms: Hyperledger Fabric; R3’s Corda; Quorum, developed by global bank JPMorgan Chase; and Digital Asset (DA).
David Treat, managing director and Global Blockchain Lead, Accenture, says: “This is a game-changer that can help accelerate adoption of blockchain technology. The key challenge was to develop the ability to integrate without introducing ‘operational messaging’ between distributed ledger technology platforms in order to stay true to the principles and benefits of blockchain technology. Applying this capability with our clients is already unlocking new opportunities to bring ecosystems together, mitigating key concerns about picking the ‘wrong’ platform or having to re-build if one partner uses something different.”
