RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK – Kyndryl, the provider of various information technology services spun off from IBM two years ago, is looking to “separate” from its operations in China, according to a report in The Financial Times.

Kyndryl is built around former IBM operations that have had a significant presence in the Triangle area.

“Kyndryl’s move reflects geopolitical tensions and follows trend of western companies seeking to insulate their Chinese units,” the newspaper reported.

The FT cited unnamed sources.

Kyndryl laid off an undisclosed number of employees in March.
