In the plan phase, we work with you to set project scope and objectives define data, metrics, and KPIs. Our consultants identify information sources and tools, then we create the project plan and engage project stakeholders.


In the measure phase, we collect additional measurement data, including software quality metrics and financial data, to help understand the cost, quality, and complexity of the IT portfolio.


During the discovery phase, we use the CGI Portfolio Assessment Café to capture data from source systems defined in the plan phase. We capture auxiliary business and technical inputs via surveys sent to application owners, then identify and resolve gaps and data quality issues.


In the analyze phase, we leverage the CGI Portfolio Assessment Café dashboards and visualizations to analyze the collected application portfolio data. We then work with you to review and refine each application's automated suggestions and cloud migration options. Our output for your next transformation steps is a cloud migration recommendations report.
