Indian IT Giant Tech Mahindra to Launch Blockchain Finance Management
Mahindra Group subsidiary Tech Mahindra partnered with DLT startup Adjoint to launch a blockchain financial management and insurance solution.
Tech Mahindra, the IT subsidiary of Indian conglomerate Mahindra Group, partnered with American distributed ledger technology (DLT) firm Adjoint to launch a blockchain financial management and insurance solution.
Telecommunications industry news outlet CommsMEA reported on Sept. 2 that the solution is the first of its kind. With this service, clients will reportedly be able to save $4 million for every $1 billion of financial risk management and banking relationships.
Auditable data recording
Per the report, users of the new system will be able to validate the business case with their own data in their own secure environment and help eliminate out-of-order and double data entries.
In order to ease reporting and compliance, auditors can purportedly be given access to an immutable record of all transactions.
The system is based on UpLink, an open source DLT platform aimed at enabling compliant modern financial processes management. The platform has a dedicated messaging protocol and consensus mechanism meant to let participants in the blockchain ecosystem establish what data is put on the distributed ledger.
Previous blockchain initiatives
Earlier this summer, Tech Mahindra announced a blockchain-based anti-spam phone call initiative. The solution allows phone companies to comply with the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s regulations to protect mobile phone subscribers from unsolicited calls.
As Cointelegraph reported in April, Samsung SDS has reportedly agreed to cooperate with Tech Mahindra in an attempt to enter the overseas blockchain market.
