Kyndryl, largest IT infrastructure services provider, announced a multi-year tech agreement with Etihad Airways to accelerate the next stage of its digital transformation journey.
Kyndryl will help Etihad modernize its IT infrastructure by facilitating the use of cloud platforms.
Previously, the airline has relied on a private cloud infrastructure – but to achieve further flexibility, it needed to adopt a cloud strategy that integrates various public cloud environments to support its workloads.
Etihad will tap Kyndryl to work closely with cloud providers to select fit-for-purpose cloud platforms that are based on the specific requirements of Etihad’s mission-critical workloads. Over the next three years, Kyndryl will also help migrate and manage Etihad’s workloads across the new multi-cloud environment.
Through a multi-cloud model, Etihad will have seamless access to advanced cloud services and be able to combine the capabilities that each cloud platform provides. This will enable more efficient operations and bringing innovation to market at a more rapid pace.
“The airline looks forward to working with Kyndryl as their expertise in cloud environments will support Etihad in becoming a more agile and sustainable airline,” said Frank Meyer, Chief Digital Officer, Etihad.
