Infosys Launches EdgeVerve Blockchain Framework

InfosysEdgeverve

This week, technology and consulting giant Infosys announced its subsidiary EdgeVerve Systems launched a blockchain offering for banks called the EdgeVerve Blockchain Framework.

The new framework is a distributed, permissioned ledger that empowers banks to offer a variety of blockchain-based applications, including:

  • Asset transfer
  • Analytics
  • Administrative
  • Security
  • Smart contracts

The company’s promotional video describes its plans for the new solution:

The Blockchain Framework has three main attributes:

  1. Distributed and permissioned: minimizes transaction costs and improves data sharing in a secure environment
  2. Asset agnostic: allows businesses to store and transfer a variety of assets on a single network
  3. Extensible: an API layer lets banks develop and deploy their own blockchain solutions

Infosys was founded in 1981 and serves 450 million customers in 84 countries. At FinovateEurope 2016, the Bangalore-based company debuted Finacle Youth Banking. At FinDEVr New York earlier this year the company’s subsidiary, EdgeVerve, presented how REST APIs are changing core banking.
