This is the idea Stellantis, one of the world’s leading automakers and a mobility provider, moved forward with when it struck up an agreement with Kyndryl, the world’s largest IT infrastructure services provider, to provide technology services and manage the company’s core IT infrastructure back in the beginning of February.
