FAIRFAX, VA, May 4 /PRNewswire/ - CGI Group Inc. (NYSE: GIB) ( TSX: GIB.A), a leading provider of information technology and business process services, today announced a built-for-government cloud computing solution for its AMS Advantage enterprise resource planning (ERP) product.

By making AMS Advantage available as a comprehensive service that includes all infrastructure, software and support, CGI brings state and local governments the economies of scale and flexibility of cloud computing to reduce costs, increase agility and drive innovation in their ERP programs.

CGI's AMS Advantage cloud solution expedites provisioning and scaling of a client's ERP infrastructure and applications while preserving each client's autonomy and independence. The solution reduces total cost of ownership by eliminating the need to purchase and maintain costly hardware and software, and by charging only for resources that are used. The solution also includes regular upgrades to prevent obsolete technology and expensive system replacements, protecting scarce taxpayer dollars.

Built for government's stringent data privacy and security requirements, the solution is delivered from CGI's U.S. data center facilities using a secure and robust private cloud environment. One of the first CGI clients to deploy in this cloud environment is the State of Maine.

Part of CGI's comprehensive managed services offering for AMS Advantage, the cloud-based solution can include all necessary hardware, software, operations management, release maintenance, help desk services, security, disaster recovery and functional and technical support.

"CGI's AMS Advantage cloud solution allows our clients to implement the leading, built-for-government ERP solution with a predictable pricing model without upfront capital expenditures," said Daniel Keene, Vice-President of CGI's AMS Advantage program. "This solution is part of the continuing evolution of the technical, functional and strategic ERP services we provide to clients, from improving transparency for citizens through performance dashboards and mobile access, to managing end-to-end service centers for their financials, payables and human resources."
