Unified management of hybrid IT environments

Enterprises that are adding cloud-based solutions to their traditional IT mix are finding that holistic control of these hybrid environments can be elusive, resulting in higher costs and risk.

CGI Unify360 provides the unified IT platform, consulting services, frameworks and practices needed to understand an organisation’s entire IT portfolio, create cohesive strategies that align IT to business objectives, and maximise IT investments as a result. The solution supports provisioning, configuration, incidents, reporting, billing and workload management for both traditional IT and cloud-based solutions, while providing 100% visibility into the spend, service availability and security postures of all elements in the hybrid IT universe.

CGI Unify360 is designed to help organisations seeking to move to the cloud with confidence, gain new approaches to optimise IT investments, speed time to market and increase competitiveness. Example use cases include:

  • Centrally manage hybrid cloud environments with greater security, automation and governance
  • Optimise cloud services to reduce expenses and better connect IT resources to business objectives, regardless of the cloud and IT provider (e.g. public, private, internal) used
  • Use multiple cloud service providers (CSPs) for different stages of the system development lifecycle
  • Consolidate data centers and migrate legacy systems to multi-cloud environments
  • Provide self-service provisioning, workflow automation, billing, chargeback/showback
  • Solve the problem of “rogue” cloud acquisition and portfolio sprawl with enterprise-wide governance, transparency and control
  • Ensure cloud readiness for smooth migration of legacy systems to multi-cloud environments
