CGI announced the award of a 5-year contract from NetApp, a cloud data services provider, to deliver managed professional services leveraging data fabrics. Data fabric architecture simplifies and integrates data management across cloud and on-premises to accelerate data-intensive digital initiatives and transformations.

Together, NetApp and CGI provide healthcare, manufacturing, financial services and government clients with access to specialized digital services and scalable end-to-end capabilities. CGI will provide these capabilities through a center of excellence specializing in NetApp services, utilizing a combination of local metro market expertise and its North American delivery centers.

CGI's 2019 Client Global Insights report that 81% of executives interviewed cite analytics as their most frequently planned innovation investment within the next three years. While the amount of transactional and contextual data an organization captures continues to grow exponentially, that data is still stored in too many disparate, incompatible and closed systems to allow for meaningful analysis.
