Long before the public announcement, Kyndryl was already working closely with FlexPod customers across multiple industries to provide IT infrastructure and managed services expertise. Here are some recent customer experiences that highlight the benefits.

Use case: Managed services, disaster recovery, hybrid cloud transformation

This customer is one of the largest healthcare providers in the United States. FlexPod is the production platform for the mission-critical insurance claim system. The environment must be up 24/7/365 to service millions of members. The reliability, scalability, and disaster recovery capabilities of FlexPod are key to the success of the company’s IT operations. As they continue their rapid business expansion and acquisition, they need to evolve their on-premises FlexPod environment to embrace hybrid cloud for business transformation.

Kyndryl provides IT and managed services for the on-premises FlexPod environment. Building on the customer’s satisfaction, trust, and partnership, Kyndryl has been selected to assist with their IT transition to hybrid cloud. The transition is a multiyear effort. The combination of the hybrid cloud technology and services from NetApp, Cisco, and Kyndryl will enable the customer to drive more business insights from the IT moderation and cloud transformation.

The business benefits will go far beyond modernizing the current IT environment. More importantly, it will help to improve the development and delivery of new healthcare applications with technology innovations in the cloud era.

Automotive and financial services

In addition to the healthcare industry, BMW in Germany, working with NetApp and Kyndryl, has enjoyed a successful cloud transition to transform their production processes to streamline operations and meet market demands.

CaixaBank in Spain is also engaging Kyndryl and NetApp to transform their enterprise data center environment to leverage the cloud innovations.
