Accenture Introduces Enterprise Blockchain Interoperability Tools

Accenture, a global consultancy firm has announced a new enterprise blockchain offering that will allow enterprises to use multiple blockchains via its interoperability. Accenture enables business process integration and interoperability between Digital Asset, R3 Corda, Hyperledger Fabric and Quorum distributed ledger platforms.
 
Accenture has created a node called Interoperability Node, that sits between two DLTs and work as a translator between the two. This interoperability node is given the appropriate identity and access control capabilities to all in-scope DLT systems.
 
 
From the press release:
 
The two Accenture solutions show that that blockchain platforms from Digital Asset (DA Platform) and R3 (R3 Corda), as well as Hyperledger Fabric and Quorum, are capable of integrating to securely orchestrate business processes. The technology solutions also demonstrated they could actively share data and information across distributed ledgers, proving that integration is possible across the growing number of blockchain and distributed ledger platforms in the market.
 
“This is a game-changer that can help accelerate the adoption of blockchain technology. The key challenge was to develop the ability to integrate without introducing ‘operational messaging’ between distributed ledger technology platforms in order to stay true to the principles and benefits of blockchain technology,” said David Treat, managing director, and Global Blockchain Lead, Accenture. “Applying this capability with our clients is already unlocking new opportunities to bring ecosystems together, mitigating key concerns about picking the ‘wrong’ platform or having to re-build if one partner uses something different.”
