"The EEA benefits from a diverse, yet enterprise-focused membership base," said Miller. "Wipro brings a global perspective on IT strategy and operations to this alliance."
Wipro has created the Blockchain Innovation Lab, a part of its Blockchain Center of Excellence (COE), to help accelerate use-case specific blockchain solutions. The COE conducts experiments to test scalability, performance, and security, relating to blockchain technology. Wipro also created a Blockchain Academy to provide in-house expertise with a multi-level program, giving the EEA access to talented developers of blockchain technologies.
Wipro Vice President Krishnakumar Menon is excited to be a part of the founding team of the EEA.
"Enterprise Ethereum is a great way to fast-track enterprise adoption and Ethereum is one of the fastest growing technology platforms used by our clients for developing and deploying enterprise blockchain,” said Menon.
Microsoft's principal blockchain architect, Marley Gray, also sees a value in Wipro's collaboration.
“It’s great to have Wipro as a founding member of the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance. Having organizations like Wipro driving purpose-built solutions and accelerating innovation for businesses, adds significant credibility to the Enterprise Ethereum ecosystem,” said Gray.
