By Tony Savoy, VP, Strategic Alliances & Partnerships – Microsoft, Kyndryl
At this year’s Microsoft Inspire conference, Aki Duvuur, Jason Langlais, Ron Xavier and I spoke about how Kyndryl and Microsoft are working together to develop joint customer solutions for hybrid cloud environments. The partnership between Kyndryl and Microsoft allows us to bring our customers state-of-the-art solutions built for Microsoft Azure. Building hybrid cloud environments based on our customers’ needs – rather than forcing them to make do with off-the-shelf solutions – accelerates hybrid cloud adoption, and enables our customers to embrace a modern work experience.
How do we do it? Our joint innovation lab, the Kyndryl University for Microsoft, and our deep Microsoft domain expertise enable us to help our customers modernize their cloud environments (like VMware on Azure); modernize business-critical applications such as SAP; modernize their mainframes; and transform their workplace environments. As a “startup” with more than 90,000 experts and decades of business, industry and technology experience, Kyndryl’s distinguished services delivery is unmatched.
Put simply, Kyndryl + Microsoft = Better Together. For example, RIMAC Seguros, a leading insurance company in Peru with 1.8 million customers, selected Kyndryl to be its strategic advisor and the technology integrator to advance its cloud modernization strategy. We’re deploying Microsoft Azure to transform and modernize RIMAC Seguros’ IT infrastructure and support applications across critical lines of business, including Property and Casualty and Life Insurance.
Another example is Kyndryl’s work with Viewpointe, a leading content services technology provider to the financial services industry. By migrating Viewpointe’s IT infrastructure from their private cloud to Microsoft Azure, we’re delivering greater flexibility, speed, and dynamic scalability to enable Viewpointe to evolve its content services offerings to meet the growing needs of the financial services industry. In both examples, Kyndryl services combined with Microsoft Azure are increasing flexibility and enhancing security for our customers as a first step toward a more comprehensive transformation.
There’s much more to say about the combined value that Kyndryl and Microsoft delivers to our customers – our cross-industry expertise; our investments in skilling (advanced certifications) and innovation; our global footprints in VMware systems and mainframes; our Managed Mobility Services; and our Digital Workplace expertise which helps customers preserve their organizational culture while shifting to new, and more inclusive, ways of work.
