Technology infrastructure services leader Kyndryl and Microsoft have announced a joint effort to enable the adoption of enterprise-grade generative AI solutions for businesses on The Microsoft Cloud, as more and more businesses seek to make the most of AI capabilities.
In a joint announcement, the two companies said they will rapidly design, develop and drive new generative AI innovations and solutions across their enterprises. To further the advancement of new AI capabilities, Kyndryl is also committing to utilise the Kyndryl University for Microsoft to educate thousands of Kyndryl employees on new Microsoft AI technologies.
The strategic partnership with Microsoft was Kyndryl’s first global strategic alliance upon becoming an independent public company. Together, the companies continue to unlock new areas of innovation that drive better business outcomes for customers, and tap into incremental multi-billion-dollar revenue opportunities in fast-growing areas such as data modernisation, governance and AI.
The news is the latest in a series of announcements from some of the world’s largest companies around the adoption of generative AI. According to a recent report from MIT Technology Review, generative AI and large language models are democratising access to AI, finally sparking the beginnings of truly enterprise-wide AI.
Kyndryl and Microsoft advancing customer AI-readiness
Central to enabling the expanded collaboration, Kyndryl is launching an AI-readiness program within Kyndryl Consult that is dedicated to responsibly exploring the adoption of generative AI solutions. Highly skilled Kyndryl experts will help new and existing customers build a trusted data foundation and navigate the complexity of using new generative AI technologies.
“Kyndryl is creating a trusted environment for organisations to explore the benefits and value it can bring to organisations as they look to drive efficiencies, grow and deliver greater business outcomes,” said Stephen Leonard, Global Alliances and Partnerships Leader at Kyndryl. “With over three decades of experience in delivering data services, advanced security capabilities and managing complex IT environments, we are well-positioned to work alongside Microsoft to help organisations confidently apply generative AI at scale and positively impact their businesses while being mindful of known risks.”
“Together with Kyndryl, we have a shared vision to responsibly enable our customers to jointly explore, design and deploy generative AI solutions across their enterprises, and to do it in a way that enables them to realise business value,” said Stephen Boyle, GM Global Partner Solutions, Microsoft. “As a leader in the delivery of generative AI and data platforms, we believe partners such as Kyndryl are critical to the successful use of emerging technologies for business.”
