Kyndryl announces new cloud native services for faster app modernisation

New service offerings will help customers migrate and modernise critical workloads to AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure

IT infrastructure services provider Kyndryl has announced new cloud native services that it says will help customers accelerate their cloud application modernisation.

New Kyndryl Cloud Native Services have been developed to help customers migrate, modernise, and optimise critical workloads on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure. 

The move comes at a time when many businesses are experiencing slow digitisation modernisation progress due to complexities, technology silos, as well as a shortage of critical in-house IT skills.

In response to this, Kyndryl said its services will help customers streamline their cloud application modernisation by providing a framework of code assets, workflows, expertise, and the end-to-end lifecycle. 

“We’ve seen companies increase their use of cloud over the last few years but have had barriers to adoption – whether it’s the complexities of hybrid or multicloud landscapes or the lack of skills and expertise to manage their IT estates,” said Harish Grama, leader at Kyndryl's Cloud Global Practice.

“These new services are a direct outcome of Kyndryl’s ongoing journey to expand our innovation and offerings through strategic partnerships and new technology, which we have not been able to do before.”

One of the world’s largest IT infrastructure services providers, Kyndryl serves customers across 60 countries, specialising in designing, building, managing, and modernising complex information systems.

Formerly IBM’s managed infrastructure business, the company split from the IT giant in November 2021 and has since gone on to strike up partnerships with the three major hyperscalers: AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure. 

Aligned with the cloud adoption frameworks of these partners, Kyndryl Cloud Native Services include automated backup, patching, KPI monitoring, security, alerting, and incident management.

Through these offerings, Kyndryl said it is targeting faster routes to innovation through enhanced productivity, as well as a simplified procurement process with consistent delivery across clouds. Other perks will include more cost-effective cloud migration and modernisation, integration of other technologies such as artificial intelligence, the firm said.

Ultimately, the aim is to offer more efficiency and agility, via quicker cloud deployments, reduced developer set-up time, easier management, and more resilient applications.

The provider added that it is focused on transforming customer cloud operations through the use of infrastructure as code (IaC) and policy as code for secure-by-design delivery principles that allow customers to take an automation-first approach.
