Scotland BU Key Clients And Business Overview

The Scotland Business Unit (BU) is led by Lindsay McGranaghan and was newly formed in October 2018. Our aim in Scotland is to continue to grow our business by delivering great service to our clients and creating an environment that allows our members to learn and develop.

Our work is varied and covers sectors such as local authority, education, Scottish Government and oil and gas. Members in our delivery centre provide emerging technology capability, development services and testing to projects all over the UK and are also key to growing our business in the North of Scotland.

Some example Case Studies/Clients:

Edinburgh City Council

CGI was selected by the City of Edinburgh Council to provide transformational Managed IT services to enable the Council’s introduction of integrated digital services. Following the success of our Empowered Learning programme in Glasgow and the Borders, we are about to embark on a similar journey with Edinburgh, thereby providing similar digital learning tools and benefits to school pupils and teaching staff across the city.

A video has been created by Microsoft and CGI for City of Edinburgh Council. It highlights our partnership with Microsoft and our support for the digital transformation at City of Edinburgh Council.

Glasgow City Council

CGI provides Managed IT services to Glasgow City Council (GCC) as well as transformational IT services, enabling the introduction of integrated digital services for the Glasgow area. This will result in an improved citizen digital experience across a range of council services whilst delivering new high speed broadband for schools and the local community. We have also implemented our Empowered Learning Programme within GCC, aiming to offer every student the same access to the same great digital tools for learning, helping to raise attainment whilst creating a flexible learning environment for educational staff.

Scottish Borders Council

CGI is the primary provider of Managed IT services to the Scottish Borders Council (SBC). In addition we are delivering a number of transformation projects including our Empowered Learning programme which has been an invaluable part in the council’s response to COVID-19, providing school pupils and teachers across the Scottish Borders with the ability to access remote teacher training. We have recently implemented similar technology within the five local authority care homes in the Borders, allowing residents to connect with their families.

Aberdeen (Oil and Gas)

The CGI team in Aberdeen is focused on software applications for the oil and gas sector. We develop our own products, work closely with clients to develop their in house solutions and support clients running specialised third party tools. CGI software tracks workers travelling offshore to the North Sea. All gas delivered to homes in Ireland and around 15% of UK gas supply is managed with software developed in Aberdeen.
