Kyndryl signed a multiyear Strategic Collaboration Agreement (SCA) with AWS, focused on developing and delivering generative artificial intelligence (AI) solutions and advanced machine learning (ML) capabilities. Together, we will establish an Innovation Factory to co-create generative AI and ML solutions focused on specific industry use cases. This will help customers jump-start their cloud modernization journey and accelerate their business transformation. Kyndryl will utilize its AI-readiness program to further support customers in the adoption of responsible AWS generative AI services.
We also expanded our collaboration with AWS as a Premier Tier Services Partner to help customers accelerate their mainframe modernization initiatives. As part of the collaboration, Kyndryl will support the AWS Mainframe Modernization service, a platform for assessment, migration, modernization, execution and operation of mainframe applications. With such services, we can create an end-to-end mainframe transformation factory that integrates and migrates mainframe applications and data to AWS, as well as provides seamless hybrid estate management for shared customers.
What’s more, the AWS Competency Program recognized Kyndryl for providing validated solutions to help customers improve their critical systems availability and resilience posture using AWS Resilience Services. Since the start of our partnership, we have achieved seven Competency Programs, eight Service Partner Validations and six Partner Programs.
