The agreement combines Kyndryl’s digital infrastructure services with NetApp’s cloud-led, data-centric software technology.
Kyndryl has been tasked with serving as the lead integrator, applying its expertise and global reach to manage the enterprise storage infrastructure that is critical to the automaker’s production process.
On the other hand, NetApp will provide the hybrid cloud data infrastructure foundation for all of BMW Group’s data centre needs, delivering network-attached (NAS) and scale-out storage infrastructure.
The deal covers 17 countries on five continents with Germany, USA, and China as key markets.
Tosca Colangeli, President of Kyndryl UK and Ireland, said: “We are proud that BMW Group has selected Kyndryl for this strategic program. The technology and services that we provide, will be advancing innovation for the entire organization while ensuring operational stability.”
