Kyndryl & Stellantis Drive CX, Efficiency and Sustainability

Kyndryl will help modernise Stellantis’ IT infrastructure and enhance its focus on digital, cybersecurity, new business models & customer-centric solutions

IT infrastructure services provider Kyndryl has announced an expanded, multi-year agreement with automotive maker Stellantis to manage and operate select essential business operations such as networking, data centre support and local IT services support in Europe, North America and South America.

Stellantis, which includes brands such as Fiat, Peugeot, Citroën, Chrysler, Dodge and Maserati, announced in February 2023 that it would be using Kyndryl Bridge, an open integration platform that delivers solutions by leveraging Kyndryl’s core technology strengths, for real-time insights and unprecedented control over its IT environment.

Now, as part of an expanded partnership, Kyndryl will contribute to modernising Stellantis’ IT infrastructure, enabling the automaker to access a wider range of skilled technical resources and rebalance internal skills to enhance its focus on digital, cyber security, new business models and customer-centric solutions.

“Stellantis is working to reimagine mobility as we know it today and set new benchmarks in our fast-evolving industry,” said Gilles Feuntun, Vice President of Global Technology & Operations at Stellantis. “It means teaming with the world’s technology leaders to offer innovative and sustainable products and solutions that meet the evolving needs of both customers and the planet. We are delighted to expand our partnership with Kyndryl to leverage the power of digital technologies and create value for society at large.”

Kyndryl and Stellantis to develop solutions that enhance customer experience, operational efficiency and sustainability

With industrial operations in more than 30 countries and customers in more than 130 markets, Stellantis focuses on electrification and software development, with cutting-edge technologies at the heart of its products and services, it aims to develop, engineer, manufacture, and scale the best breakthroughs in all facets of sustainable mobility. This includes autonomous, connected, electrified, shared and pre-owned vehicles to micro-mobility, commercial vehicles and even electric aircraft.​​​​​​​

A constellation of 14 iconic automotive brands and two mobility arms, Stellantis is on the road to becoming the greatest sustainable mobility tech company — not necessarily the biggest — while generating added value for all stakeholders as well as the communities in which it operates.

According to an announcement, Stellantis and Kyndryl will keep collaborating to co-create and co-innovate solutions that enhance customer experience, operational efficiency and sustainability in the automotive industry. 

“We are honoured to extend our relationship with Stellantis, a visionary and innovative company that is shaping the future of mobility,” said Angelo Cirocco, Managing Partner, Kyndryl. “Our collaboration is based on a shared vision of digital transformation and innovation, leveraging Kyndryl’s global scale, industry knowledge and technology expertise to help Stellantis achieve its strategic goals and ambitions.”
