Infosys wraps up blockchain pilot for Riverside County, California
Infosys said that its US-based subsidiary – Infosys Public Services (IPS) has wrapped up the pilot of a blockchain solution for Riverside County in California.
The blockchain solution has been designed for enhancing the efficiency, access, and security of crucial recordkeeping in the county.
According to Infosys, the blockchain network lets county employees handle data effectively and securely, while easing access and reducing cost of operations.
Eric Paternoster – CEO of Infosys Public Services said: “Blockchain technology presents a new opportunity for governments to advance their digital agenda and leapfrog into the next era of secure, citizen-centered services.
“We are excited about this project with 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.”
Infosys had developed the pilot blockchain network in partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) using Amazon Managed Blockchain. The blockchain solution is said to modernize the otherwise paper-centric operations of the Riverside County Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder Office.
The India IT services provider said that the introduction of blockchain technology enables the office to store, recreate, as well as retrieve verifiable digital records, thereby cutting down the necessity for physical storage. Furthermore, the blockchain solution will give citizens more timely and accurate access to their records, said Infosys.
Peter Aldana – Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder at County of Riverside said: “As Riverside County’s Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder, our goal is to provide recordkeeping, record issuance, and property valuation in a timely, secure, and cost-effective manner.
“Adoption of blockchain technology will greatly advance our digital transformation journey towards our goal.”
