Kyndryl Holdings Inc. and Microsoft Corp. have reportedly announced a partnership in which the companies will be collaborating on enterprise solutions for AI, data management, hybrid cloud migration and management as well as cybersecurity.

The collaboration will help in the market introduction of advanced solutions developed on the Microsoft Cloud, that will expedite the adoption of hybrid cloud, further improve customer work experiences, and modernize applications.

Kyndryl, the recent spin-off of International Business Machines Corp’s managed infrastructure services, has announced that Microsoft is the company’s only premier global partner. The company will be leading the client advisory and implementation. It will advise clients and help in creating novel technologies that use Microsoft’s cloud.

In the meantime, Microsoft is setting up the Kyndryl University for Microsoft, to help around 90,000 Kyndryl employees get easily familiar with the abilities of the Microsoft Cloud stack.

Martin Schroeter, the Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Kyndryl has stated that the company is investing in its partner ecosystem to bolster customer success. He added that Kyndryl is matching its deep expertise in mission-crucial IT systems with the advantages of Microsoft Cloud through this breakthrough relationship.

The long-term collaboration will open new customers and more markets to the company while offering Microsoft access to the managed services market that is led by Kyndryl.

For the record, Kyndryl was spun-off of the IT infrastructure services of IBM in 2021. The company’s global customer base includes 75 of the Fortune 100 firms. It has more than 88,449 skilled employees operating from more than 100 countries and the company collaborates with its customers and contributes to their success.

In other news, Microsoft has recently reintroduced options for metallic finishes and rubberized grips on its Xbox Design Lab controllers. The Xbox developer had paused the Design Lab program ahead of last year’s launch of Xbox Series X, before reintroducing it in June without the aforementioned alternatives.
