Kyndryl: A Look at the First Year Post Spin-Off and Thoughts on What’s Ahead

The IT services landscape is highly fragmented, with hundreds of small and medium IT services companies that specialize in particular technologies or operate in certain geographies. However, when focusing on the list of global, multi-discipline IT infrastructure services providers that can both operate at scale and support a global footprint for a client, the list is a lot shorter.

In late 2021, Kyndryl was spun off from IBM and joined that shorter list of IT infrastructure services providers. Since then, it has been on a path to establish its independence and forge new partnerships and alliances to drive business in a congested IT services provider market.
