IT infrastructure services provider Kyndryl has announced a new strategic partnership with Teradata, a multi-cloud data platform for enterprise analytics.

The collaboration aims to help customers apply artificial intelligence (AI) and data modernisation techniques across their IT environments to boost the performance of various projects and speed up time-to-value.

Kyndryl’s data and AI services, as well as its infrastructure management tools, will be paired with Teradata’s high-performance cloud analytics and data platform in a move the pair claim will help customers migrate their on-premises data warehouses to the cloud with hyperscaler platforms.

In an announcement, the companies said they will help customers harness AI to gain better insights from their hybrid and multi-cloud data environments by designing, enabling, and supporting enterprise data modernisation solutions.

“We are thrilled to partner with Teradata who is a trusted and valued technology partner to many customers, providing a best-in-class analytics and data platform for enterprises across the globe,” said Nicolas Sekkaki, applications, data and AI global practice leader at Kyndryl.

“We look forward to deepening our partnership so we can deliver greater value and results that help companies transform and compete in their industries and around the world.”

London-based Teradata has created VantageCloud, a connected multi-cloud analytics platform for the enterprise, designed to help businesses leverage data and analytics to drive performance.

The firm says this new strategic partnership will help customers to leverage Kyndryl’s expertise – which includes advisory, implementation, and managed services – to get the most out of the platform.

There will also be a focus on delivering industry-specific analytics services geared toward customer modernisation challenges across key verticals such as manufacturing, communications, financial services, retail and CPG industries.

“This joint expertise will enable our customers to drive more actionable insights and higher value from their data through advanced analytics and AI/ML initiatives,” said Lisa Stewart, SVP of worldwide partners and alliances at Teradata.

Formed just last year as a spin-off from IBM, IT infrastructure services provider Kyndryl designs, builds, and manages complex mission-critical information systems for customers across more than 60 countries.

The firm’s partnership with Teradata is the latest in a string of collaborations struck since it went solo at the tail end of 2021. Recent deals include a hybrid cloud and edge partnership with Lenovo, a cyber resilience collaboration with Dell, as well as a delivery partnership with Oracle, which was announced back in June.

The company also has agreements in place with the three largest cloud providers, AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft.
