Converge Technology Partners, Inc. recently acquired Becker-Carroll, a company with experience bringing powerful blockchain solutions to customers.
Ottawa, ON – February 5, 2018
Converge Technology Partners, Inc. (“Converge”) and Becker-Carroll today announced that Converge has completed their acquisition of Becker-Carroll. The acquisition comes on the heels of Becker-Carroll’s recent involvement in the implementation of Hyperledger Indy, a blockchain technology that enables enterprise applications and services to participate in digital, centralized identity (self-sovereign) ecosystems and organizations to establish trusted relationships with one another through a verifiable, claims-based architecture. The knowledge gained from this and related initiatives positions Becker-Carroll to build enterprise-class self-sovereign identity blockchain solutions that respect and secure the privacy and liberty of the people and organizations that use them.
“We are excited to incorporate Becker-Carroll’s expertise in the areas of blockchain, privacy, access and identity management, and IM/IDM standards into our organization. Their abilities will uniquely qualify us to solve client problems around GDPR, HIPAA compliancy, enterprise procurement, smart-contracts, and supply chain,” said Shaun Maine, CEO and President of Converge Technology Partners, Inc. “As we continue to grow as an organization, Becker-Carroll’s capabilities will prove invaluable for helping our clients navigate the changes that blockchain and self-sovereign identity are bringing to the business world.”
“It is my belief that the concept of self-sovereign identity is going to fundamentally change the way that our clients deal with their customers and partners. I see it as the first way that blockchain will impact enterprise IM/IT,” said Don Cuthbertson, CIO and Head of Blockchain Innovation at Converge Technology Partners, Inc. “The acquisition of Becker-Carroll will allow us to help our clients deal with this change given their expertise and capabilities in the areas of service design, access and identity management, blockchain, privacy, IM/IT standards, and regulations.”

Their managing partners have been involved in IT and information management for over twenty years.
