CGI Agile Offerings
CGI collaborates with clients to deliver agile offerings that can be scaled to achieve real transformation throughout the lifecycle of software development. We facilitate the right organizational design and coaching at the program and portfolio levels to generate true alignment, transparency and execution, allowing the business to reap the benefits that lean scaled agile should offer. Part of providing a consistent delivery engine is measurement, which is a core part of how we do business.
- Lean Agile Enterprise Adoption
Pivoting to agile is an organizational transformation from business to IT operations and everywhere in between. We use approaches such as our Change Adoption Management Program (CAMP) to provide guidance for pivoting to agile, leveraging fact-based decision making to drive transparency, work visualization across the enterprise, and DevOps practices to achieve the greatest improvements.
- Agile Training
A large part of the pivot to an agile organization is the right training at the right time. We provide public and private certification-based training in many Scaled Agile classes, from Leading SAFe, to Program/Product Owner to Scrum Master workshops that allow your teams to implement the key aspects of the Scaled Agile Framework to drive value at all levels.

CGI DevOps Offerings
DevOps is a practice where developers and operations teams, enabled by technology, work seamlessly together to achieve faster development and a better customer experience. It features high-performing teams, frequent updates, elastic scalability, and embedded security. It’s powered by a high degree of process and tooling automation. CGI assists clients wherever they are in their DevOps maturity, from assessment and enablement to transformation, including managing and advancing all or part of a client’s DevOps and traditional processes and tooling.
We assess and benchmark DevOps maturity, identify and analyze gaps, and develop and execute a roadmap with discrete, measurable initiatives. We also provide coaching and organizational change management and application re-architecting for DevOps suitability.
- Managed DevOps
As part of discrete application development or managed service engagement, we can facilitate and manage a subset or all of a client’s continuous DevOps processes, including quality-driven design and test automation, as well as host and operate components of the DevOps tool chain―either on client premises, at CGI, or in the cloud.
As part of an outsourcing engagement, we introduce DevOps methods where strategically beneficial. Our “multi-modal” IT with hybrid delivery model uses automation to drive legacy efficiencies while accelerating digital delivery and operations with DevOps.
