The company says it now offers ‘outcome-led’ consulting and IT modernization services

IT infrastructure services provider Kyndryl announced that it’s expanding its service offering to include consulting. The new service, Kyndryl Consult, “combines Kyndryl’s longstanding consulting expertise with industry-leading technology integration solutions”, according to the organization.

Kyndryl, an IBM spin-off, is going big on its own merit. “With a global team of highly skilled consultants, architects, specialists and program professionals, Kyndryl Consult will help new and existing customers navigate complex technology environments and accelerate business outcomes”, the company said.

Kyndryl claims to be the world’s largest IT infrastructure services provider, “serving thousands of enterprise customers” in more than 60 countries. The company designs, builds, manages and modernizes complex, mission-critical information systems.

Kyndryl Consult will leverage their current customer base and services offering to offer what they believe will be a unique consulting service palette, including strategy and operations; native and hybrid cloud acceleration; application and mainframe modernization; artificial intelligence; data and analytics; network and edge computing capabilities; digital workplace services, and security and resiliency offerings.

Kyndryl Consult will unite Kyndryl Vital’s co-creation vision and Kyndryl Bridge’s open integration platform for real-time data insights to break down complex problems, the company said. Moreover, Kyndryl noted it will be “working side-by-side with customers and partners on achievable projects that produce actionable results.”

Achieving ‘continuous modernization’

Mark Slaga, Global Practice Leader, Kyndryl Consult, described the business unit’s vision. “Customers need a services partner that is willing and able to work by their side from design through execution and back to new discoveries that enable measurable IT transformation projects”, he said.

“Kyndryl Consult offers deep technical expertise from decades of successful engagements across many industries, along with a robust technology platform supported by a broad ecosystem of partners that can help enterprises solve problems, overcome challenges and continuously innovate to achieve their business goals.”

The company maintains that the new consulting wing will leverage “decades of mission-critical experience” to focus on “creating an environment of continuous IT modernization.”
