IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Cloud 2024 Predictions — European Implications


To be successful as a digital business requires modern applications. Application modernization is a key CIO priority, and the whole application landscape needs to be consolidated and updated, to deliver a modern digital customer and employee experience that is expected today.

Kyndryl went through one of the largest business transformations in recent history, when it was spun out from IBM in 2021. They consolidated 1800 applications down to less than 360, downsized 50 datacenters worldwide to 4 hyperscaler locations in the span of just two years, and gained many insights on their journey.

In this IDC and Kyndryl webinar, Kyndryl will share the successes and the challenges that they encountered on their journey to become a digital business, so that you have a blueprint that will help you transform your application landscape and successfully run your own digital business.

During the webinar, we will discuss:

  • 2024 application modernization trends,
  • Learn from Kyndryl about their lessons learned from being customer zero of the Kyndryl application modernization process,
  • Talk about typical customer strategies and challenges with Kyndryl’s CTOs.
Why Attend?

IDC's complimentary webinars are designed to provide insights and actionable advice for meeting your most important business objectives. The structure of our event aims to be simple and effective - 60 minutes of research-backed sessions, expert advice on specific business challenges, use cases and inspiring leaders.
