Kyndryl launches AI mainframe services to support hybrid clouds

IT infrastructure provider Kyndryl has introduced new AI consulting and managed delivery services to help organisations exploit their mainframe application and data assets, as part of their hybrid cloud transformation.

Kyndryl is educating more than 5,000 of its professionals with new AI skills in mainframe and cloud technologies.

While the total number of mainframes has been reduced over the years, the amount of enterprise data stored on them has gone up.

“To speed mainframe transformation projects, customers are seeking to embrace AI and generative AI technology, but often lack the skills and expertise needed to effectively deploy this in their infrastructure and applications,” said the provider.

Petra Goude, global practice leader for core enterprise and zCloud at Kyndryl, said: “We will help customers reduce IT transformation efforts and costs, enhance agility and resiliency, mitigate skills challenges, and drive better outcomes by optimising their mainframe estates to thrive in hybrid environments.”

The services are designed to help mainframe customers optimise the right workload on the right platform using AI.
