Helping governments serve citizens today — while preparing for tomorrow 

Deliver on the promise of digital transformation

Government leaders pivoted quickly during the pandemic, and their responses illustrate how short-term solutions can solve citizens' emergent needs. But it is increasingly clear that a long-term modernization strategy is required to maximize agility, drive economic recovery, and improve citizen experiences.    

Kyndryl has decades of experience partnering with state, local, and other government agencies to design, build and manage their IT systems. Our experts are enabling government leaders to leverage private, hybrid, and multi-cloud solutions, business resiliency and network services to help optimize their IT workloads and enable digital government services via safe, secure, and scalable environments.

Customer use case
 

Customer challenge
This state's unemployment system was struggling to handle a significant increase in claims. The state also needed to modernize its system to qualify for federal funding, but it lacked the expertise and resources to manage and implement this infrastructure transformation.

 

How Kyndryl helped
Kyndryl provided Advisory & Implementation Services (A&IS) to facilitate program and project management. The architectural leadership provided a holistic design, migration oversight, and beginning-to-end technology guidance. Kyndryl’s technical project delivery resources worked with the state’s delivery team on the migration project to accelerate the project schedule.

 

Outcomes

  • Minimized serious disruption to the state’s critical systems, ensuring citizens uninterrupted access to healthcare and social services
  • Offset the total cost to complete their technology refresh project because the state was able to use Kyndryl’s project plan to secure federal funding
