Kyndryl and Cisco are collaborating to help enterprise customers become data-driven businesses a little faster. Cisco solutions and Kyndryl managed services will power the effort, as Kyndryl is the world’s largest IT infrastructure services provider.

Kyndryl and Cisco will team up to help businesses transform their operations by embracing cloud computing services. The companies will also develop new private cloud services, network and edge computing solutions, software defined networking (SDN) solutions and multi-network wide area network (WAN) offerings that they deliver with advanced security capabilities.

Deborah Nevin is vice president of Global Alliances at Kyndryl, which spun off of IBM more than a year ago.

“Companies around the world in all industries are clamoring for solutions and services that can streamline the management and operation of their hybrid cloud and network computing environments,” Nevin said. “We are pleased that our long-standing collaboration with Cisco can provide customers with integrated technologies and services that derive more value from their current IT investments, while embracing the benefits of advanced network and edge computing capabilities.”

Embracing the Entire Cloud Journey

The companies will focus on providing technologies, infrastructure expertise and managed services throughout a customer’s entire cloud journey. They’ll start with strategy and migration, through to running, maintaining and supporting complex IT environments. Cisco and Kyndryl also will work to enable and deliver digital transformation projects for customers around the world. And partners will play a big role in that.
