Infosys rose 1.86% to 1,578.55 rupees after Infosys Public Services, a US branch of IT major, piloted a blockchain solution to improve the efficiency, access and security of critical records in Riverside County (USA).
The blockchain network enables county employees to manage data effectively and securely while making access easier and lowering operating costs. The pilot blockchain network, developed in partnership with Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) using Amazon Managed Blockchain, modernizes the once paper-centric operation of the Riverside County Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder Office. The introduction of blockchain technology enables the Office to store, recreate and retrieve verifiable digital records, reducing the need for physical storage. The solution will also give citizens faster and more accurate access to their records.
Eric Paternoster, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Infosys Public Services (IPS) said, “Blockchain technology offers governments a new opportunity to advance their digital agendas and move into the next era of more secure, community-oriented services. We are excited about this project with the Riverside County Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder Office and appreciate the opportunity to demonstrate how blockchain can enable the county to become more digital, connected and secure. ”
The announcement was made after close of trading on Tuesday, July 20, 2021. The markets were closed on Wednesday, July 21, 2021 due to Eid al-Adha.
Meanwhile, Infosys Finacle, part of EdgeVerve Systems, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Infosys and Santander UK, announced on Wednesday that Santander UK’s international cash management platform would be launched as part of the bank’s ongoing digital transformation program.
Santander Global Connect is a brand new cash management platform designed to support the international growth plans for their corporate and commercial customers. The first version of the platform, which is currently in the pilot stage, gives customers access to the liquidity held worldwide. Subsequent releases will enable digital self-service capabilities to manage, control and mitigate cash and business risks through a single portal.
Infosys’ consolidated net income increased 2.3% to Rs.5,195 billion, while sales increased 6% to Rs.27,896 billion for June 1, 2021 compared to March 4, 2021.
