Kyndryl and Elastic have announced an expanded global partnership to provide customers full-stack observability, enabling them to accelerate their ability to search, analyse and act on machine data (IT data and business data) stored across hybrid cloud, multi-cloud and edge computing environments.

Under the partnership, Kyndryl and Elastic will collaborate on creating joint solutions and delivery capabilities designed to provide deep, frictionless observability at all levels of applications, services, and infrastructure to address customer data, analytics and IT operations management challenges.

The companies will focus on delivering large-scale IT operations and AIOps capabilities to joint customers by leveraging Kyndryl’s data framework and toolkits and Elastic’s Enterprise Search, Observability, and Security solutions, enabling streamlined migrations, modernised infrastructure and tenant management, and AI development for efficient and proactive IT management.

As part of the partnership, Kyndryl and Elastic plan to collaborate to support customer needs and requirements via joint offerings and solutions across the following areas:

IT Data Modernisation – Helping organisations manage exponential storage growth and giving them the capability to search for data wherever it resides.

IT Data Management Services for Elastic – Providing flexibility to users of Elastic by letting Kyndryl manage the entire stack infrastructure and analytics workloads for IT operations.

Intelligent IT Analytics – Enabling actionable observability through AI/ML capabilities that deliver unified insights for proactive and efficient IT operations with technology domain-specific insights.

Data Migration Services for Elastic – Delivering the capability to streamline migrations and deploy self-managed Elastic workloads to the hyperscalers of a customer’s choice.

Kyndryl’s global team of data management experts will also participate in the global Elastic certification program to expand their expertise in advising, implementing and managing Elastic solutions across critical IT projects and environments.

“Customers in all industries are seeking to improve their capacity to search and analyse 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.”
