As businesses across the global economy continue to grapple with the ripple effects of pandemic-induced supply chain disruption, enterprises within the oil and gas sector are under more pressure than ever to ensure the smooth delivery of the energy that keeps commerce physically moving. Business disruption — punctuated by the tightening of global crude supplies — pose complex operational challenges that call for advanced, forward-looking solutions.

Motiva is collaborating with Kyndryl to continue to strengthen its IT services and operational efficiencies by shifting more of its business into a cloud-based environment. In doing so, the company is delivering technology efficiency for employees, improved backend workflows, and high value to its customers in today's increasingly complex energy market.

Kyndryl and Motiva are operationalizing a hybrid, multi-cloud environment that will enable Motiva's "cloud first" strategy for new applications and drive infrastructure modernization for business-critical workloads. Kyndryl is also leveraging data analytics and workflow automation to help accelerate Motiva's IT service management capabilities.

As supply chain uncertainty continues to create disruptions for businesses across the globe, Motiva has found it more critical than ever to transform its IT services, increase IT operational efficiencies, and enhance digital workplace services. Our partnership with Kyndryl is an important step on the path to better optimize IT operational costs while advancing our digital transformation strategy.

Anthony Dayao, Chief Information Officer, Motiva

As Motiva continues to evolve its business to meet the needs of today's oil and gas market, we're working hand in hand to help them propel business growth and gain critical efficiencies. By harnessing the combination of Kyndryl's cloud and digital workplace expertise, Motiva is able to address its most pressing business objectives while driving forward its longer-term transformation goals.
