Kyndryl, a spin-off of IBM's managed infrastructure division, has announced the opening of its new Cloud Innovation Center in Montréal, Quebec.

The facility will create nearly 500 new IT jobs over the next five years while also providing digital transformation services to Canadian organizations.

Over 100 new IT positions have already been created at the center, who have been offered training in advanced cloud platforms, automation tools, cyber security, and given access to its vast partner network.

Our customers and organizations across Canada can now leverage Kyndryl's world class talent, with the top skills in cloud and technology services, to help them accelerate their digital transformation strategies and achieve their business goals," said Xerxes Cooper, president of Kyndryl Canada.
