USAID taps CGI for $68M cloud contract
- By Ross Wilkers
The U.S. Agency for International Development has awarded CGI’s federal business a five-year, $68.2 million contract to help implement a new cloud computing environment.
USAID wanted 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 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.
