Amelia was hired to fill the role of Virtual Engineer for CGI clients, specifically handling incident resolution and ticket management. In this role, Amelia was responsible for remedying service tickets; locating, creating, changing and updating IT information, and end-to-end Level 0 and Level 1 incident resolution.

Amelia Helps CGI Improve Automation Processes

CGI has been using a custom automation that allows the solution to function as a cognitive predictive analytics engine, which enables better resource utilization and improved cost-effectiveness.

“Using data that we've been collecting with Amelia over the last four years, one of our very brilliant engineers developed an algorithm that can help us predict storage usage for our customers,” said Andrew Belzile, Program Manager at CGI. “You can see spikes of servers go up maybe once or twice a year at 20%, then go straight back down. So instead of having our customers pay for storage at maximum capacity all year long, we can offer more flexible rates to them.”

In essence, the engineer customized the system to predict, on its own, how much storage CGI needs across its entire roster of customers, as well as its own internal data center, and CGI passed those savings and efficiencies onto its customers.

Amelia Delivers Business Value

CGI has deployed more than 12,000 automation workflows using Amelia’s solution. More than 30 different information systems are now proactively monitored. Thanks in large part to proactive monitoring, CGI has witnessed a 30% reduction in client outages.
