LONDON, U.K. - 10 September 2020 -

Elastic (NYSE: ESTC) ("Elastic"), the company behind Elasticsearch and the Elastic Stack, today announced a new strategic partnership with leading IT and business consulting firm CGI.

CGI delivers complex, mission-critical transformation programmes and important citizen-centric services to improve the citizen experience and help drive efficiencies across government. The partnership will deliver Elastic's Enterprise Search, Observability, and Security solutions into Central Government and its agencies to help expose actionable insights at speed and scale by enabling users to explore and analyse data differently using the power of search.

Government organisations use Elastic's solutions to surface, search, and report valuable information across log, network, geospatial, structured, text, and cybersecurity data. The solutions provide customers with a flexible and infinitely scalable means to store and rapidly analyse their data for real-time situational awareness, all while operating in a secure, compliant, and auditable environment across the government. Workloads can also be orchestrated across on-premises, private and public clouds to support the customer's specific deployment requirements.
