Success story: CGI


Founded in 1976 with headquarters in Montreal, Quebec, CGI is one of the world’s largest IT and business consulting services firms. Operating in hundreds of locations across the globe, CGI delivers end-to-end services and solutions, including strategic IT and business consulting, systems integration, intellectual property, and managed IT and business process services.

Partner profile

CGI wanted to find innovative tech companies based in the North of England as part of its ‘metro market’ growth strategy. Their solution should employ emerging technologies to fulfil a business problem/use case within the manufacturing, transport and logistics and/or local government sectors.

The offer

Partners will be able to leverage CGI’s extensive and strong business relationships with clients across the public and private sectors in the North of England and broader UK. CGI will help partners build their pipeline, using its scale to help open large clients and opportunities up to their business.

The result

“CGI ran its ‘Northern Exposure’ programme with TechMarketView, looking for new and innovative organisations aligned to CGI’s priority emerging technology areas and key sectors which would enable us to continue growing our presence and ecosystem in the North of England.  TMV analysts were easy to work with, providing deep market insight and helping us to form and deliver the whole programme, which ran entirely virtually during a very challenging time due to Coronavirus. The programme was a success, with a significant number of very strong applications. We’re progressing conversations with a number of these, with a view to joint go-to-market activities in the coming months.”
