With a global economy still recalibrating from the far-reaching effects of the pandemic, enterprises everywhere are applying lessons learned as they reorient themselves for future growth and innovation. For all of them, setting new roots in powerful digital technologies will be crucial — yet only half the world’s companies have begun that journey.
A recent report by the International Data Corporation estimated some 65 percent of global GDP will be digitized by 2022, a trend being addressed by most boardrooms. An estimated 69 percent of company boards of directors have urged their firms to kick digital transformation efforts into high gear, according to Gartner.
The digitization imperative is the driving force behind Kyndryl’s newly-forged partnership with Google Cloud.
Together they will unleash the power of data and analytics, applied artificial intelligence (AI) and infrastructure modernization to help customers gain new insights and drive business outcomes. By running their most critical business systems on the global and sustainable Google Cloud infrastructure, customers will be able to seamlessly deliver applications and data across their entire footprint, from headquarters to the network edge.
“Google Cloud is particularly appealing to large enterprises such as banks, retailers and healthcare providers that collect a lot of data from their call centers and need ways to better understand it,” said Harish Grama, Global Practice Leader, Kyndryl Cloud Services. “Google Cloud lends itself to mining that data for intelligence.”
