About The Center Of Excellence

QuEST Global will begin work on the Center of Excellence (CoE) after they successfully signed an agreement with Microsoft. The CoE will be based at the Pune facility. It will enable QuEST Global to achieve the next step in excellence and expertise in future strategy, research, and creation of innovative solutions based on Azure technologies.

The CoE is going to focus on refining current solutions as well as the creation of new solutions, technology demonstrators, and proof of concepts. QuEST Global will use the CoE to host advanced training and improve the skills of engineers to adapt modern Azure technologies, best practices, and infrastructure for a better business experience.

What Leadership Said 

According to Krish Kupathil, the Head of Hi-Tech and Digital at QuEST Global, they were delighted to collaborate with Microsoft for the CoE. He added that the CoE would be a centralized and strategic division that would act as the incubation hub for QuEST engineers. According to Kupathil, engineers will be able to execute prototype and solution developments quickly. He further stated that besides driving new tech initiatives at QuEST, the CoE would deliver crucial components such as governing processes, resources, structural approach, and automation.

Commenting on the issue, Michael Kuptz, the General Manager – Americas, IoT & Mixed Reality Sales at Microsoft Corp said that they were pleased about the CoE for Microsoft Azure. He added that Microsoft had always strived to deliver excellence and assist its clients to achieve more through innovation. According to Kuptz, the CoE was another opportunity for them to further the valued collaboration and come up with new products and solutions using Azure Technology.

What Is The Azure Blockchain?

The Azure Blockchain service will be part of what the CoE will work on. It was designed by Microsoft as a fully managed ledger service that gives users the ability to grow and operate blockchain networks at scale within Azure.

Azure blockchain Service offers clients simple network deployment and operations, built-in consortium management, and the ability to develop smart contracts using familiar development tools. The service is designed to support numerous ledger protocols. It currently offers support for the Ethereum Quorum ledger using the Istanbul Byzantine Fault Tolerance (IBFT) consensus mechanism.

QuEST Global is a trusted global product-engineering partner with over 20 years of experience. The company operates in 13 nations and has 66 global centers and over 11,000 personnel. By working with Microsoft Azure to develop various solutions including blockchain, it could help to ensure the enterprise-grade solutions can be developed for major corporations. The CoE could also help to ensure that blockchain solutions reach the market at a higher velocity.
