WESTPORT, CT – (January 31, 2018) Chateaux, a Westport-based technology solutions company, is pleased to announce its IBM Blockchain partnership. IBM Blockchain is the only fully integrated enterprise-ready blockchain platform designed to accelerate the development, governance and operation of a multi-institution business network.

Chateaux began its “blockchain for business” journey in early 2017 as a strategic imperative for the organization, building on the recognition that enterprise blockchain solutions require, and Chateaux possesses, a comprehensive set of skills including UI/UX design, mobile platforms, analytics, security, external application integration and quality assurance.

According to Ken Zimmerman, a Chateaux Principal, “Blockchain is a natural fit for our company, and IBM demonstrated early on that it would be the leader in the space. So, of course, with our broad network of experts, combined with Chateaux’s incredible track record of successful enterprise implementations, it was time to step up our relationship with IBM in a big way.”

Chateaux’s collaboration with IBM Blockchain for business will focus on creating solutions that are permissioned and confidential, outside the boundaries of cryptocurrency solutions. IBM Blockchain uses the Hyperledger platform, which can kickstart the development process, and allow Chateaux to create blockchain solutions for the enterprise more efficiently than ever before. And of course, with IBM as one of the first major organizations to recognize that enterprise blockchain solutions should be part of its long-term growth strategy, Chateaux found a ready and willing partner. Ginny Rometty, CEO of IBM, succinctly summarized blockchain’s value recently when she said that, “What the internet did for communications, I think blockchain will do for trusted transactions.”

Vijay Rathna, Chateaux’s Sr. Solution Architect heading up Chateaux’s Blockchain Solutions group, adds, “Creating enterprise blockchain solutions is complex and requires a focused, experienced team. We at Chateaux have built a highly skilled blockchain development team that is fully capable of building solutions that will cater to the needs of our enterprise customers.”

Chateaux has been providing technology services and solutions to define, design, and deliver high-quality corporate information and automated processes to mid-market and enterprise-level organizations since 1985.
