At the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, this state's unemployement system struggled to handle a significant increase in claims. The state was also under pressure to meet a federal mandate to modernize their infrastructure — a requirement for the state to receive government funding.
How Kyndryl helped Kyndryl conducted an assessment of the state's unemployment system and proposed a plan to address the limitations that were causing the system to fail. Kyndryl also helped the state to plan, implement and project manage the infrastructure modernization effort required for federal funding.
Outcomes Working with Kyndryl, the state was able to improve their unemployment system and minimize serious disruption to their critical citizen systems. They successfully met the federal modernization requirements and were able to use the Kyndryl project plan to secure federal funding from HHS to complete the project.

Outcomes The state agency was able to reinforce security across their environments and protect systems that enable public transportation — including bus, rail and train — serving a vast region and millions of citizens.
Public school system enables digital equity for students
Customer challenge An underserved public school system sought to provide digital equity for all students through universal broadband access, a need that became even more critical during the Covid-19 pandemic.
