Indian IT Services firm, Tech Mahindra, has been recognized as a Hyperledger Certified Service Provider (HCSP) for blockchain capabilities by Hyperledger and the Linux Foundation. Tech Mahindra says that the certification reinforces Tech Mahindra’s capabilities to provide blockchain technology support and setting up scalable blockchain networks for commercial deployments. The company claims that it was one of the 18 blockchain service providers globally to have received this certification, which is considered the gold standard in the open-source community.
Tech Mahindra has deployed over 25 blockchain platforms using Hyperledger projects across industry verticals such as banking and financial services, media and entertainment, telecom, retail, manufacturing, oil & gas, healthcare, and travel & logistics. The organization also has to credit the implementation of one of the world’s largest blockchain networks covering 500 million+ subscribers in India to fight spam calls and text.
The company has been engaged in over 250 global Blockchain deployments, with over 100 core blockchain team members trained on Hyperledger. The company is extensively focusing on developing and deploying several transformative implementations for governments, large and mid-sized enterprises across diverse industry verticals that have enabled customers to solve complex business problems.
“In order to successfully navigate and strategize in this ‘new normal,’ organizations must leverage technologies like blockchain to address this unprecedented challenge and create a competitive edge in the market. As part of our TechMNxt charter, we offer a holistic blockchain ecosystem to create industry-leading applications and enhance customer experiences. The recognition by the Linux Foundation as a Hyperledger Certified Service Provider is a matter of great pride for us to demonstrate our differentiated capabilities globally. This will provide us a definitive edge over our peers to position Tech Mahindra as a partner of choice,” says Rajesh Dhuddu, Blockchain and Cybersecurity Practice Leader, Tech Mahindra.
Hyperledger launched the HCSP program in November 2019. The program requires the blockchain technology professionals in an organization to enroll for an online, performance-based test consisting of a set of performance-based problems to be solved in a command line.
“Our Hyperledger Certified Service Provider (HCSP) program is designed to meet the growing demand for implementing Hyperledger-based solutions. As an HCSP, Tech Mahindra is now part of a global network of blockchain experts with the training and proven expertise to deploy Hyperledger DLTs (Distributed Ledger Technology) quickly and efficiently and to ensure ongoing success. Tech Mahindra has already played an active role in developing and deploying Hyperledger technologies, and we look forward to the work they will do as an HCSP,” says Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger.
For Tech Mahindra, Blockchain has been a big focus area in recent times. It recently entered into an agreement with Amazon Web Services (AWS) Blockchain for creating solutions in the aerospace, healthcare, and telecom sectors. This year, Tech Mahindra launched a new blockchain-based contract and rights management system (bCRMS) targeted toward the media and entertainment sector on IBM blockchain. The platform has been developed to help media companies to track revenue, royalty, payments, manage rights, and check plagiarism, among others.
