IT Modernization in the U.S.

Achieving greater agility and cost efficiency

A major challenge on the path to digital transformation is balancing the need to invest in change with the need to run day-to-day operations. As technology evolves rapidly, more legacy systems are becoming obsolete. The cost of maintaining these antiquated systems is a material drain on IT budgets; the risk of critical interruptions increases each day; and the inflexible technology is a major barrier to change.

At CGI, we believe IT modernization is about enabling business agility to meet evolving demands, mitigate IT-related risks and improve performance.

Modernization is a critical step in the digital transformation journey, since a superior customer experience and operational excellence both require connecting legacy to digital. IT modernization typically means making current systems more efficient and user-friendly, where as digital transformation involves increasing program effectiveness by fundamentally changing the way an organization does business.
