Tech consultancy CGI has won a five-year contract with NetApp, one of the world’s largest data services providers, centred on enterprise clients in the Americas.

Founded in 1995, Sunnyvale, CA-based NetApp delivers cloud and on-premises data services. The firm currently focuses on hybrid cloud services, which combine on-premises private cloud and third-party public cloud services. NetApp partners with leading cloud providers such as AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and IBM.

NetApp today has more than 10,000 employees across 110+ global offices, with US$6.1 billion in annual revenues. The data company has worked with many leading companies, including Coca-Cola, Mercedes-Benz, and DreamWorks.

As companies try to harness the power of their data to make more informed decisions, NetApp has been promoting the use of data fabrics. A data fabric simplifies the integration and orchestration of data services across clouds and on-premises to drive digital transformation.
