The two parties will apply their knowledge in data and analytics, applied artificial intelligence (AI), and infrastructure modernisation to help customers gain new insights and drive business outcomes.

To enable these results for customers, Kyndryl and Google Cloud will jointly prioritise and focus on digital transformation projects.

In addition, Kyndryl’s managed services for Google Cloud will help users run their business systems on Google Cloud’s global infrastructure, while seamlessly delivering applications and data across their entire footprint, from headquarters to the network edge.
