Kyndryl launches AI consulting and managed services

IT infrastructure services provider Kyndryl has launched a new line of AI- and generative AI-based consulting and managed delivery services to help organisations take advantage of their mainframe application and data assets. The company has also announced a commitment to educating more than 5000 of its mainframe professionals with AI skills to help support customers’ AI-based initiatives and the deployment of AI-enabled solutions in hybrid cloud environments.

Research commissioned by the company found that 90% of organisations believe the mainframe remains essential to their business operations even in the cloud era, and 95% are modernising and running the mainframe as part of a hybrid cloud environment.

Kyndryl’s new services are designed to help mainframe customers optimise the right workload on the right platform using AI, by supporting use cases including moving workloads off the mainframe into the cloud, integrating mainframe applications and data with cloud or distributed environments, and modernising workloads on the mainframe.

Kyndryl’s Global Practice Leader for Core Enterprise & Cloud, Petra Goude, said the initiative complements the company’s existing AI and data advisory and implementation services, which include assessments, innovation workshops and proofs of concept.

“Kyndryl is taking a bold next step to enable and accelerate our customers’ mainframe modernisation journey by unlocking their applications and data through deployment of AI and generative AI,” she said. “Our innovative approach will help customers reduce IT transformation efforts and costs, enhance agility and resiliency, mitigate skills challenges, and drive better outcomes by optimising their mainframe estates to thrive in hybrid environments.”
