CGI looking for partners with ‘Northern Exposure’

As they expand their business in the North of England, following their ’metro market’ growth strategy and with a large number of ‘members’ already living and working in the region, CGI are looking to extend their network of partners to help grow their business in the communities they are operating in.

TechMarketView is helping CGI find innovative tech companies based in the North of England as potential partners with a new Innovation Partner Programme that launched on 2nd March and will culminate with a Dragons’ Den pitch event on Tuesday 21st April.


Partner profile

CGI is looking for local companies with innovative software solutions and/or skills that play to one or more emerging technology themes; in particular:

  • Advanced Analytics
  • Agile/DevOps
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Customer and Employee Experience
  • Intelligent Automation
  • Smart Cities (including immersive, 5G, drones, digital twin)

These solutions should address particular use cases in one or more of the following industry sectors:

  • Manufacturing
  • Transport & Logistics
  • Local Government

To be eligible, applicants must be a UK tech-focused company whose head office is based in the North of England or have a significant presence there. They may be a solution development company or a consultancy with subject-matter experts and practitioners steeped in these technologies and sectors. And, needless to say, they must not be a subsidiary of, or backed by, a competitor to CGI!
