Synechron, a global financial services consulting and technology services provider, has announced that it has open-sourced its Quorum Maker. This is one of the first open source utility tools available within the industry to allow developers to pre-configure the nodes needed to build in a flexible and error-free way on a Quorum network.
The developers say that the tool works to automate network configuration as a utility using a QA Wizard, dramatically cutting down development time, as the network can be up in mere minutes. Synechron developed Quorum Maker to speed their own development and agility when building applications on the Quorum platform for their clients.
Julio Faura, Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) Chairman and Head of Innovation at Banco Santander, said: “The mission for the EEA is to connect experts across industries working on smart contract enabled applications to evolve Ethereum for enterprise-grade applications. With over 150 organization members, we are now the largest open source blockchain initiative, and our technical steering committee is focused on continuing to advance the base protocol to support increasingly complex use cases. Some of the greatest innovations are coming out of the financial services industry, where companies like Synechron are contributing to the protocol advancement as well as application development.”
Amber Baldet, Chair of the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance’s Financial Industry Working Group and Blockchain Program Lead for J.P. Morgan, said: “When companies like Synechron open source tools they have built to speed their own Quorum application development process, the entire Enterprise Ethereum community benefits. Community driven development is still new to the financial services industry and Synechron’s leadership sets a great example for how collaboration accelerates innovation.”
