Kyndryl Bridge launched, providing IT estate orchestration to businesses

Kyndryl has launched its new open integration platform, Kyndryl Bridge, to help its business customers orchestrate IT estates and drive growth

Using the new platform, businesses will be able to customise their mission-critical workloads, while leveraging interoperability to ensure business and tech goals are aligned for the long-term.

Utilising operational data patterns and expertise to generate actionable insights, the new offering looks to redefine how organisations improve and accelerate their AI-powered analytics and business objectives.

Designed with configurability in mind, Kyndryl Bridge is evolving to deploy ready-made, industrial scale solutions from Kyndryl and its broad and growing partner ecosystem, which includes companies such as Cloudera, Microsoft and Nokia.

Its management tools, powered by automation and AI, will provide tech leaders with real-time insights to prevent downtime and better forecast future needs and costs.

By innovating to deliver solutions through platform-enabled services, infrastructure services provider Kyndryl — created through a spin off of IBM‘s managed infrastructure services last year — looks to accelerate its customers’ digital business journeys.

On average, Kyndryl Bridge has been estimated to reduce the number of IT incidents, per server per month for enterprises by 74 percent.

“Dealing with complexity is what Kyndryl does best, and what customers need most. Kyndryl Bridge will be a way for our customers, and Kyndryl, to run their mission-critical infrastructure and digital transformation journeys better,” said Martin Schroeter, chairman and CEO of Kyndryl.

“Kyndryl is committed to transforming how IT services are delivered, and Kyndryl Bridge is core to our long-term strategic mission to grow our ecosystem of alliance partners, use tools and IP to create a robust advanced delivery system, and ultimately dedicate more expertise and focus to best serve customers at scale.”

Antoine Shagoury, CTO of Kyndryl, commented: “By enabling leaders to focus less on managing IT systems, they can build and support their digital business strategies while freeing up IT resources for higher-value work.

“It provides greater access and control over critical tools, and Kyndryl experts in cloud, data and AI, security and resiliency, mainframe modernisation, and other important aspects of the IT estate.”

Overcoming complexity

Although digital modernisation efforts globally lead a majority business agendas 60 percent of CIOs cite it as their most critical growth driver in 2022, according to PwC complexity and skills shortages have slowed progress.

These key obstacles can be overcome through automated, detailed insights and connected systems without silos.

“Enterprise IT leaders today are responsible for the management of increasingly-complex IT estates that demand greater oversight, interoperability, and AI-powered analytics to avert challenges and downtime,” said David Tapper, program vice-president, outsourcing and managed cloud service at IDC.

“The ability of Kyndryl Bridge to connect the many tools, workflows, and processes in which enterprises have spent years investing, while delivering real-time, actionable insights and recommendations, is a powerful proposition for enterprises throughout the global economy.”
