EY announces an alliance between Kyndryl, the IT infrastructure services provider, and Ernst & Young LLP, to support clients in achieving their digital transformation goals.
Many organisations are turning to digital transformation to become more effective and competitive. As they go through this journey, many face challenges related to complex IT environments and the inherent risks (e.g., cybersecurity, resiliency and IT asset management).
Recognising this, the EY−Kyndryl Alliance provides an innovative approach and utilises advanced technologies to help organisations transform and modernise their business. The alliance combines Kyndryl’s cloud and core infrastructure services with the leading business and technology consulting capabilities of EY US in areas including cybersecurity, asset management and cloud infrastructure services.

The EY−Kyndryl Alliance will help clients achieve their strategic transformation goals by providing compelling, comprehensive solutions.
