Kyndryl, an IT infrastructure services provider, has partnered with Elastic, a provider of search-powered platforms. The collaboration will let Kyndryl offer its customers a unified approach to data management. It will help them overcome hurdles and improve their ability to access and gain insights at scale from their business data, the companies said.
The partnership between Kyndryl and Elastic will allow customers to search and analyze data stored in the cloud and edge computing settings. Kyndryl and Elastic will collaborate on joint solutions and delivery capabilities designed to provide deep, frictionless observability at all application, service, and infrastructure levels to address customer data analytics and IT operations management challenges.
Kyndryl’s worldwide team of data management experts will participate in the global Elastic certification program. This certificate aims to expand expertise in advising, implementing and managing Elastic solutions across critical IT projects and business operations.
“Enabling customers to gain actionable insights from their data is a key enabler of data-driven digital transformation,” stated Scott Musson, vice president, Worldwide Channel and Alliances at Elastic. “The combination of Kyndryl’s global expertise in managing mission-critical information systems and the proven scale and flexibility of the Elastic Search Platform provides the critical foundation to help organizations drive speed, scale, and productivity, and address their observability needs across hybrid cloud, multi-cloud and edge computing environments.”
By using Kyndryl’s data framework and toolkits and Elastic’s enterprise search, observability, and security solutions, the firms can offer customers large-scale IT operations and AIOps capabilities. For example, they can now streamline migration, modernize infrastructure and tenant management and use AI development for efficient and proactive IT management.
Through this partnership, Kyndryl and Elastic aim to provide customers with efficient solutions in the following areas:
- Helping businesses manage exponential storage growth and allowing them to search for data regardless of the location.
- Allowing Kyndryl to manage the full stack infrastructure and analytics workloads for IT operations provides users with more flexibility.
- Offering AI/ML capabilities that provide actionable observability and unified insights for proactive IT operations with domain-specific technology insights.
- Delivering the capacity to streamline migrations and deploy self-managed elastic workloads on demand.
“Customers in all industries are seeking to improve their capacity to search and analyze the data stored in the cloud and on edge computing environments,” said Nicolas Sekkaki, Applications, Data & AI global practice leader for Kyndryl. “We are happy to partner with Elastic to create and bring forward a unified approach that will help customers overcome hurdles and improve their ability to access and gain insights at scale from their business data.”
