The Middle East’s technological environment is continually changing as governments and companies from many sectors seize the potential of the digital revolution. The global pandemic has accelerated the regional technology environment over the past two years, compelling firms to quicken their digital transformation process. Players such as Kyndryl have stepped up to support the region’s national agendas in reinventing organisation’s models and helping them in reshaping their digital strategies.

Creating a seamless hybrid workplace
Kyndryl is considered as the world’s largest IT infrastructure services provider that designs, builds, manages and modernises the complex, mission-critical information systems. The company’s over 90,000 employees serve more than 4,000 customers in 60 countries around the world, including 75 per cent of the Fortune 100. There are six key global practices focused on cloud, applications, data and artificial intelligence, security and resiliency, core enterprise and zCloud, network and edge; and digital workplace. There is also a Kyndryl Advisory and Implementation services practice made up of senior business and technology executives who advise its customers on best-in-class digital environments and the adoption and integration of advanced technologies.  

Meanwhile, Kyndryl as a standalone company has developed a broader ecosystem of technology partners. Since its launch in November 2021, the company has announced a series of strategic partnerships with hyperscalers and tech giants, including Microsoft, VMware, Google, Pure Storage, Nokia, AWS, Cloudera, Lenovo, Dell, SAP, Red Hat, NetApp, Cisco, Veritas, and Oracle among others.

Leading the region
Recently, the IT infrastructure services provider, announced the appointment of Andreas Beck as the company’s managing director in the Middle East and Africa (MEA). Beck returns MEA with a wealth of experience, working across numerous regions, industries and business units. Most recently, he served as chief of staff to Kyndryl’s group president. Based out of the company’s headquarters in New York, Beck was leading strategic initiatives around the formation of the company and ensuring alignment of business strategy and priorities throughout the company.

Prior to joining Kyndryl in May 2021, Beck led the Financial Services and Public Sectors for IBM’s Global Technology Services business across Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. He also held several sales leadership roles during his previous assignment in the UAE, supporting customers across the Middle East and Africa. “The Middle East and Africa is a rapidly growing region where digital transformation not only acts as a catalyst for success amongst businesses but is key to advancing national agendas,” says Beck. “I am excited to return to the region and collaborate with Kyndryl’s employees, customers, and partners to modernise and manage mission-critical systems across multiple industries.”

Beck holds a Bachelor of Business Administration, from Fontys – University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands and a Master of Business Administration from Warwick Business School in the United Kingdom.

The way forward
With a new leader on board, Kyndryl aims to continue build right skills, invest in new capabilities and expand its partner ecosystem to serve its customers better and help them expedite their transformation journeys.
