Luxoft One of Six Companies Collaborating with Amazon Web Services to Accelerate Blockchain Adoption

Del

Luxoft Holding Inc (NYSE:LXFT), a global IT service provider, announces today that it is collaborating with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to enable corporates to adopt blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT).

Luxoft is one of six IT and consulting services companies to make its blockchain advisory and development services available to AWS users.

“We are very excited to be working with AWS to help users engage with blockchain and DLTs,” said Vasiliy Suvorov, Vice President of Technology Strategy at Luxoft. “Blockchain is about removing data silos, improving trust and operational efficiencies. By using AWS to deploy and integrate DLTs into day-to-day processes, businesses can revolutionize how they operate.”

Luxoft helps accelerate the deployment and integration of blockchain and DLT-based projects on AWS and is already working on a number of DLT projects using the cloud. For example, Luxoft is building a healthcare claims processing system for a leading healthcare provider using DLT. By using AWS, which unifies tools and configurations while keeping data separate, Luxoft simplified the building of the network and accelerated its deployment as a result.

Through Luxoft’s Digital Enterprise practice, both Luxoft and AWS can transform organizational processes by enabling companies to adopt a blockchain strategy that quickly and easily adds new participants to a project’s ecosystem. This enables corporates to innovate new products and services, explore emerging decentralized business models and operate securely at a global scale - delivering improved business results.

This is the second time Luxoft has collaborated with AWS to help its users develop cutting-edge technology solutions, having worked with AWS on Internet of Things solutions since 2016.
