India’s Tata aims to speed up app development on Ethereum, Hyperledger, R3 Corda

Services and consulting firm Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has launched a “low code” development kit for organizations interested in developing and deploying blockchain technology quickly.

According to a press release issued by the Mumbai-based company, the Quartz DevKit, as the solution is called, “abstracts out the complexity” of developing smart contracts on a blockchain by using pre-built templates for each step of the process and making the finished contract ready to be deployed on Hyperledger Fabric, Ethereum, and R3 Corda.

The Quartz DevKit is a web-based development platform coupled with plug-and-play components that can be reused to help speed up the process. The company claims that these features enable shaving off as much as 40% of the total time required to develop and deploy the solutions. R Vivekananda, Global Head of Quartz at TCS, stated that they had received “very positive” feedback from pilot customers to their kit.

The kit is part of the company’s Smart Ledger solutions aimed at organizations interested in harnessing blockchain technology. In addition to the Quartz DevKit, the other solutions integrated into the solution are the Quartz Gateway and Quartz Command Center. The latter is used for monitoring blockchain systems while the former is used to integrate third-party systems with a company’s blockchain.

Experience Web 3.0.

Be the first to get Decrypt Members. A new type of account built on blockchain.

TCS got into blockchain early. In 2016, the company claimed that it had more than 100 blockchain-related projects under development. Earlier this year, itparticipated in a cross-border settlement of securities between banks in Kuwait and Morocco using the BaNCS Network—a private, permissioned ledger that the company has developed for its customers in the financial services and insurance industry.

Meanwhile TCS competitor Infosys completed a global blockchain trial of trade finance in September in partnership with blockchain consortium R3.

We have also launched our Hyperledger Certified Service Provider program to boost deployment speed and efficiency for enterprises. Now, this diverse line-up of new members adds even more depth and breadth to our community and momentum to our efforts to advance the state of enterprise blockchain technologies.”

Hyperledger Global Forum 2020

Hyperledger will hold its Global Forum 2020 on March 3-6, in Phoenix, AX. The Forum:

  • is open to any and all who are involved or interested in using, developing or learning more about Hyperledger’s open source, multi-stake holder enterprise blockchain technologies.
  • expects to have more than 1,000 Hyperledger contributors, members, service providers and enterprise end users for this (the second) Hyperledger Global Forum.

The Global Forum 2020 agenda

The agenda will include keynote sessions presented by:

  • Don Tapscott – co-author, Blockchain Revolution: How the Technology Behind Bitcoin and Other Cryptocurrencies is Changing the World and co-founder of the Blockchain Research Institute
  • Sheila Warren, Head of Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology at the World Economic Forum.

The agenda will feature more than 70 sessions, multiple breakout sessions plus panels, workshops and a Demo Theater. Topics will range from business talks – such as Governing DLT Networks – to forward-looking sessions – like Building Identity and Credit Solutions for the Developing World. The common theme will be using Hyperledger technology and is an opportunity for users of, and contributors to, Hyperledger projects from across the world to meet, align, plan and hack together in-person.

“The inaugural Hyperledger Global Forum in Basel energized our community and helped drive much of the momentum we’ve seen on the development and deployment fronts in 2019,” said Behlendorf.

Hyperledger Global Forum 2020 will bring even more people together for a deep dive into all things Hyperledger. Thanks to our distinguished keynote speakers and the calibre of the content curated by our hard working Program Committee, we anticipate our event will fully engage both business and technical audiences and further boost the energy and excitement within the Hyperledger community and broader enterprise blockchain market.

Enterprise Times: what does this mean

Hyperledger is an open source collaborative effort which:

  • seeks to establish a cross-industry blockchain technology platform
  • is a global collaboration
  • spans multiple industries, including finance, banking, healthcare, supply chains, manufacturing and technology.

Hyperledger hosts many technology projects. These include:

  • distributed ledger frameworks
  • smart contract engines
  • client libraries
  • graphical interfaces
  • utility libraries
  • sample applications.

The addition of yet more members, especially Telefónica and Tech Mahindra, confirms Hyperledger’s appeal. The size, and intensity, of the Hyperledger Global Forum 2020 should be a demonstration of that appeal. If thousands or tens of thousands turn up, that will represent a major success and with so many Hyperledger projects in play – that is likely.

Tapscott, WEF blockchain lead headline 2020 Hyperledger Global Forum

Today the Agenda for the second Hyperledger Global Forum was announced. Last year the enterprise blockchain event was in Switzerland in January, but this time it’s in sunny Phoenix, Arizona on March 3-6. In case you wondered, the temperature should be somewhere around 75°F (24°C).

Two keynote speakers announced today are Don Tapscott, Co-author of the Blockchain Revolution, and Sheila Warren, Head of Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology at the World Economic Forum.

“Leaders in enterprise and government who not just embrace this new technological transformation, but lead it, will reap the benefits,” said Tapscott. “However, blockchain needs stewardship and forums like this are critical to understanding, partnerships, governance and widespread adoption.”

If the event is anything like last year’s it will be jam-packed full of useful information and potential contacts.

“The inaugural Hyperledger Global Forum in Basel energized our community and helped drive much of the momentum we’ve seen on the development and deployment fronts in 2019,” said Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger. “Hyperledger Global Forum 2020 will bring even more people together for a deep dive into all things Hyperledger.”

The sessions are a balance of both business and technical tracks, and we found there are speakers you rarely see at other events.

For example, while IBM may have a presence at numerous conferences, Gary Singh its Blockchain CTO tends to stay off the radar, despite being a natural speaker. He will be talking about the oxymoron sounding “Decentralized control”.

There will be talks about projects which many will already be familiar but also those that are newer. In the latter case, the ethereum client that has been open-sourced as Hyperledger Besu will have at least three talks.

And several enterprises that you don’t often hear will be giving presentations. These include demos from Visa about its Visa B2B Connect payments system, David Cecchi from Cargill on a panel about supply chain interoperability, Telefonica discussing taking a project into production, and a keynote from Robert Palatnick of the DTCC (and also Chair of Hyperledger’s board).

The early bird registration discount will end on 18 December.

Northern Trust To Test Fractionalize Bonds On Hyperledger Sawtooth In Partnership With …

Northern Trust, a custody bank, has begun to test the trade of fractionalized bonds using blockchain technology. The banking institution is working together with BondEvalue, a debt market firm based in Singapore.

BondEvalue is set to provide asset services for the bank, which will tokenize high-grade bonds for retail investors using the Hyperledger Sawtooth technology. Normally, this type of investment is too large for retail investors, but by tokenizing the assets, someone can buy them without having large amounts of cash.

This shows the interest the bank has in the new technology. After the institution sold its first equities using the blockchain. Northern Trust has definitely shown some interest in the area. With $124 billion of assets under its custody, the bank is currently the 24th largest one in the U.S., so its efforts to use the blockchain are very relevant to the industry.

Justin Chapman, the global head of market and innovation at the bank, has affirmed that Northern Trust has created a solution that can be used in multiple jurisdictions and that the focus of the bank right now is to improve the blockchain-based services to offer the best investments for the clients.

Initially, the service will be offered in Singapore using the local sandbox initiative. If the pilot manages to be successful, the bank will continue the project together with BondEvalue and try to take it to global markets.

Standard Chartered Banking Group Joins Ethereum Enterprise Alliance

International banking group Standard Chartered has become the latest member of a blockchain standard-building organization, the Ethereum Enterprise Alliance (EEA).

In a press release issued on Nov. 6, Standard Chartered said the move would allow it to expand its client offerings across its 60 international markets.

Standard Chartered is latest EEA banking member

“Technology enables us to facilitate trade and investment across our footprint markets, improving client experiences and offering new services,” Group Chief Information Officer, Dr. Michael Gorriz, commented.

The EEA formed in March 2017 as a collaborative effort exploring the development and implementation of blockchain solutions across economic sectors. Its membership base now runs into the hundreds, with participation from entities including Microsoft, Hyperledger and various other international banks such as Santander and Russia’s Sberbank.

A formal association with Hyperledger, which itself offers enterprise-grade blockchain tools, came in October last year.

The EEA also publishes informational material such as blockchain standards documents, among which was a dedicated effort for the telecoms industry in August.

Increasing blockchain maneuvers

“We are excited to be a part of the EEA and look forward to opportunities where we can collaborate with other leading industry players to deepen blockchain research and application in the banking sector,” Gorriz added.

Standard Chartered has already made inroads into blockchain utilization. As Cointelegraph reported, the bank recently completed a supply chain financing scheme and used the technology to send a cross-border letter of credit transaction.
