CGI books $68M USAID cloud contract

CGI’s federal business has received a five-year, $68.2 million contract to help the U.S. Agency for International Development implement a new cloud computing environment.

USAID sought the ability to pay only for servers it uses on a monthly basis with the CGI Unify360 enterprise cloud software. The agency also aims to view its entire domain and analyze how changes in strategies and technologies affect its organization, CGI said in a Monday release.

Additional goals include management of costs required to maintain data centers as USAID transitions to a hybrid cloud environment.

CGI designed its Unity360 tool for both on-premise and cloud-based services, as well as modernization and cloud migration of business applications.
