Kyndryl announced significant progress in its open-integration technology services platform, Kyndryl Bridge.
The platform has attracted over 500 global enterprise customers who are operational on Kyndryl Bridge, with a projected customer count of over 1,000 by the end of the fiscal year.
Kyndryl Bridge combines artificial intelligence (AI), operational data, and the expertise of Kyndryl to offer customers an innovative way to operate their systems, resulting in improved business outcomes.
Kyndryl is actively incorporating AI and machine learning (ML) into mission-critical systems on a large scale. The company capitalizes on its expertise, including intellectual property, patents, skills, and deep industry experience, to expedite the delivery of new innovations and services.
Kyndryl Bridge has already contributed to significant cost savings for early adopters, surpassing $1 billion annually. These savings include avoiding approximately $670 million in costs by proactively preventing thousands of incidents and reducing the need for maintenance windows, resulting in an additional $370 million in savings.
“This AI-powered, open-integration services platform accelerates automation, drives efficiencies, and creates a more sustainable operation – helping companies advance their growth objectives and deliver stakeholder value,” Martin Schroeter, Chairman, and CEO of Kyndryl, said.
Kyndryl Bridge was introduced as part of Kyndryl’s Advanced Delivery initiative in September 2022, aligning with one of its core strategies known as the Three-A’s. Built on decades of experience in managing complex, mission-critical environments, Kyndryl Bridge offers an ‘as-a-service’ operating environment that encompasses a single marketplace, an operational management console, and an AI and ML analytics engine.
David Tapper, Vice President of Outsourcing and Managed Cloud Services at IDC, is recommending the use of a platform like Kyndryl Bridge.
Kyndryl Bridge supports public cloud providers, automates development and deployment processes, optimizes business outcomes, provides comprehensive visibility into technology operations, and utilizes AI to drive efficiencies and FinOps to optimize spending, David Tapper said.
