The Hyperledger ecosystem has scaled quickly with the support of a global community developing and deploying Hyperledger technologies. With more than a dozen code bases, including six graduated projects, the Hyperledger landscape is a testament to the power of community-driven and governed open source development. One key to this growth is the commitment and leadership of senior tech executives who understand and champion the impact of building foundational software as a community.

Daniela Barbosa, Melanie Cutlan & Tracy Kuhrt will discuss the how, why and what of Accenture’s involvement in Hyperledger and other open source projects. Key points will include:
  • How executive teams at companies like Accenture create an environment for employees to contribute to open source projects as part of their daily work
  • The business impact for Accenture, which is a top five company for code commits to Hyperledger projects
  •  The benefits to the community and industry, including new project developments and deployments
