PARIS, February 3, 2022 - Manpower, the French employment recruitment and consulting firm, announced the expansion of its collaboration with Kyndryl (NYSE: KD) to support the digital transformation of its infrastructure and applications, including the Manpower.fr website, which has an average of 1,500,000 visitors each month.
Long-standing collaborators, Manpower has relied on Kyndryl professionals for enterprise technology expertise since 2006. Faced with new information technology (IT) challenges, Manpower has turned to Kyndryl to help modernize its infrastructure and adopt a hybrid cloud strategy in order to gain greater business flexibility, security, and service continuity.
To improve security and resiliency, Manpower decided to modernize its IT, which is now hosted on a private cloud architecture of more than 300 distributed servers as well as on a mainframe, secured by a disaster recovery plan. By tapping Kyndryl, the company will start moving part of its mission-critical processes and applications to the public cloud, a transition that allows improvements to security, as well as enhanced administration and management of the web applications via a containerized infrastructure.
This migration allows Manpower to gain agility, accelerate time to market and meet the needs of enterprises to remain competitive, while retaining the loyalty of its customers and temporary workers.
“The long-standing partnership between ManpowerGroup France and Kyndryl has enabled us to carry out profound transformations of our IT together to support our business departments. We have always succeeded in finding a win-win way to collaborate, and we have overcome difficulties and achieved many successes with mutual trust so that each of us brings the best to succeed,” said Alfonso González, CIO ManpowerGroup France & VP Global Innovation & Analytics.
“We are very proud to continue our strong collaboration as we build on the progress achieved together thus far, and we’re excited for the future. This achievement is an illustration of Kyndryl’s commitment to the health and continuous improvement of our customer’s critical systems,” said Philippe Roncati, President of Kyndryl France.
Manpower will benefit from Kyndryl’s multi-service centers located in Spain and Lille, France for the implementation. In addition, the two companies will explore co-creating future offerings for their customers, particularly in digital workplace, talent management and upskilling solutions.
