Accenture, Cognizant, Deloitte and Synechron support top blockchain consortium via

The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) now counts Deloitte, Accenture, Cognizant and Synechron among its rapidly expanding membership. Founded in 2017, the EEA bills itself as member-led, with the explicit collective goal of establishing Ethereum Blockchain technology as an open standard across all industries..

Another name to watch out for is Julio Faura, chairman of the EEA board and head of Santander’s Blockchain R&D unit, who, in an early press release, said the non-profit’s “rapid growth in membership mirrors the accelerating acceptance and deployment of Ethereum Blockchain solutions in the global marketplace”. The enthusiasm displayed by Deloitte and Accenture in adopting EEA membership is especially relevant given the careful prudence large consultancies have exhibited in advising clients on their dealings with Blockchain and cryptocurrencies..

With its specialist focus in providing digital solutions to clients in the financial services sector, Synechron has developed substantial experience with Blockchain, Husain said. In announcing Deloitte’s membership of Hyperledger and the EEA, Piscini acknowledged that the professional services firm had been working closely with both prior to formalising their relationships..

Working with both Microsoft and IT consultancy Avanade, Accenture is developing Blockchain technology that will help establish secure identities for the estimated one-sixth of the human population who cannot prove they are who they say they are. While Synechron hopes the EEA can bring stability and order to Blockchain-based global transactions, Accenture has its eyes on the transformative potential of Blockchain from a people perspective..
