We’re excited to announce a new feature on our website, that will be highlighted through our monthly Industry Insider newsletter, as well as through our social channels – the TECHNATION Member Spotlight. We will highlight members and the work they are doing, including the launch of new products or initiatives, or the development of whitepapers and more, that would be of interest to other tech sector leaders, all with the goal of helping you to get to know our members better. Whenever possible, we will also highlight when our members collaborate with other members.
We’re excited to start off this new feature with Kyndryl!
Kyndryl designs, builds, manages, and modernizes the mission-critical technology systems that the world depends on every day.
What’s in a name? ‘Kyn’ comes from ‘kin.’ It represents the strong bonds we form with customers and each other. Our people are at the heart of this business. ‘-dryl’ is coined from tendril, evoking new growth. By working together, we are growing.
As a focused, independent company, we’re building on our foundation of excellence by creating systems in new ways. Bringing in the right partners, investing in our business, and working side-by-side with our customers to unlock potential. Through Kyndryl, partners tap into a ready-made, globally integrated network with a services provider that’s already at scale.
Our more than 4,000 customers, including 75 of the Fortune 100, are extending relationships with us because they trust us to get it right. The only thing that’s been missing is an ability to operate in a truly heterogeneous solutions environment – which is why it’s so exciting for customers, for partners and for Kyndryl that we have the freedom to combine the best people with the best skills and the best products.
We share a belief with Microsoft that partnering with others provides significant benefits to customers. They’ve brought the full weight of their portfolio to Kyndryl and will make a sizable investment in joint development and in helping us strengthen our technical expertise. We will establish a co-innovation lab to rapidly develop and bring to market new customer capabilities built on Microsoft Cloud. This partnership enables us to deliver tremendous advantages to our customers as they move critical workloads to hybrid cloud and modernize their IT, and it puts Microsoft front and center in Kyndryl’s global customer relationships.
Our partnership with AWS brings together our respective expertise, skills, and global resources to help customers transform their businesses through Industry-focused enterprise cloud services and solutions. To offer differentiated value to customers, Kyndryl and AWS will develop an accelerator for VMware Cloud on AWS leveraging their deep partnerships with VMware. Through the accelerator, skilled practitioners from AWS, VMware, and Kyndryl will deliver deep expertise and custom solutions to help the world’s largest enterprises combine their existing VMware investments with AWS services. Given Kyndryl’s high concentration of customers running VMware on premises, this provides an expedited path to VMware Cloud on AWS and helps organizations to run their mission-critical workloads in the cloud.
In Canada, Kyndryl is the largest IT infrastructure services partner with customers spanning every industry and province. In true Canadian style, Kyndryl Canada has a strong focus on giving back to their communities and looking after their people. With programs such as their Balance Pledge and events with partners like One Tree Planted, they work hard to walk the talk when it comes to a people-centric company.
As Kyndryl continues to grow through investments, people, and partnerships, we will continue to enable customers to run, modernize and transform their operations even faster and maintain enterprise control, and to do so securely and reliably with the best technology and solutions designed and built for a world of distributed work. These are critical needs for the organizations of today — and tomorrow.
That’s what we’ve built Kyndryl to do. And that’s how we’ll help customers succeed and win.
