India's software giant Wipro establishes blockchain research facility

posted about 6 years ago
Wipro Ltd has set up a research facility to develop software applications using blockchain.

India’s third largest software firm has partnered with a few start-ups to scale up the business and is in the midst of completing a few so-called pilot projects.

Wipro’s push into building applications using the blockchain technology makes it the third outsourcing firm, after Tata Consultancy Services Ltd (TCS), and Infosys Ltd, to embrace the database technology.

Wipro is working on a few projects using blockchain technology for its banking clients. The technology can offer an alternative to the current global money-transfer network SWIFT, according to a senior company executive.
