Kyndryl strikes up new delivery partnership with Oracle

IT services provider becomes a key partner for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in a bid to expand its delivery network

Kyndryl has announced a new partnership with Oracle that will see the IT infrastructure services provider deliver its managed cloud solutions to the enterprise.

The collaboration sees Kyndryl become a delivery partner for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), incorporating a range of new services that leverage Oracle technologies to help businesses modernise and shift their applications to the cloud.

The provider is aiming to build upon its participation in the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) to extend the reach of its service delivery capabilities across the network.

In an announcement, Kyndryl said it is also planning to create customer solutions in the areas of data modernisation and governance, AI-driven innovations for industries, cyber security and resiliency, and transformation of mission-critical workloads to the cloud.

“We are pleased to expand our collaboration with Oracle and will work to help customers modernise applications and workloads to accelerate and succeed on their journey to the cloud,” commented Stephen Leonard, Global Alliances & Partnerships Leader, Kyndryl.

Additionally, the company will be supporting Oracle Cloud@Customer and Oracle Exadata offerings with IT infrastructure services to assist customers with consolidating databases, lowering administration costs, and improving uptime.

“The combination of Kyndryl managed services and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides a versatile and efficient foundation for companies to confidently move, build and run their mission-critical IT operations in the cloud,” Leonard added.

To help boost its OCI expertise, the Kyndryl has established a new global competency centre, alongside dedicated resources to expand and increase Oracle Cloud certifications across its managed services team.

As an Oracle partner, Kyndryl said it will place a focus on several key areas, which include resiliency and disaster recovery options, network and edge computing capabilities, data analytics services, as well as advanced database consolidation and migration of on-premises ERP software to OCI.

“Enterprises are feeling intense pressure to modernise their businesses rapidly while maintaining the continuity of mission-critical operations,” said Doug Smith, senior vice president of Strategic Partnerships at Oracle. “The combination of Kyndryl’s expertise and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure empowers these organisations to realise their desired business outcomes from the latest technological innovations.

“Through this partnership, we will expand our reach, helping more customers around the world move critical workloads to the cloud.”
