Tangle EE Working Group to Focus on Promoting IOTA Adoption
In a blog post published on Tuesday (February 11, 2020), the IOTA Foundation announced the formation of the Tangle EE Working Group. According to the statement, the working group is the product of a coalition of partners including the IBM-founded Eclipse Foundation, Software AG, IoTIFY among others.
An excerpt from the blog post reads:
“Tangle EE unites a diverse group of leading companies, academics, and standards bodies in developing data, payment and identity solutions and tooling on IOTA’s Tangle… With the launch of Tangle EE, and its vendor-neutral open framework, we distribute governance in key IOTA use case areas. Organizations can steer the direction of IOTA’s development and build their own products, services and intellectual property on IOTA without any risk of license infringement later on.”
According to the IOTA Foundation, the partnership with the Eclipse Foundation is due to the latter’s involvement in enterprise-grade open source solutions. The IOTA Foundation says it hopes all the partners will be able to leverage their expertise in ensuring the new working group achieves its stated aim.
