Leveraging their extensive experience in critical infrastructure management and integration, Kyndryl professionals will create a broad portfolio of pre-integrated applications specific to each industry, ready to be activated within minutes. The solution includes dynamic deployment, application automation control, continuous monitoring of KPIs, and lifecycle management.

With this agreement, Kyndryl and Nearby Computing reinforce their commitment to driving progress through Edge Computing solutions, firmly believing that it will be the focal point of attention and growth in the coming years.

We continue to join forces with key IT providers whose technologies are essential to our customers’ innovation’. The agreement with Nearby Computing allows us to add pioneering capabilities in an area with such potential as edge computing.
