FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 7, 2022 – Ottawa, Canada: WiseWithData, leaders in legacy SAS migrations, announces a ban on delivering services to Russian or Belarusian based companies.
With the dangerous and unprovoked invasion of Ukraine, Russia has threatened not just Ukrainian people, but the peace and prosperity of the entire earth. This invasion must stop and peace must be restored.
WiseWithData is a global company providing services all around the world. Many Russian and Belarusian based companies make use of legacy SAS software, including their largest banks, Alfa-Bank, Sberbank and VTBR. We know that without modernization of their SAS based analytics, organizations are far less competitive than their peers who leverage modern analytics. We hope that by denying these organizations the option to modernize their legacy analytics footprint, we can help bring additional pressure to stop this horrific acts of violence and terror. .
WiseWithData pledges to not actively engage in any organization headquartered in Russia or Belarus, until Russia withdraws from the entirety of Ukraine, including the Crimean peninsula.
Founded in 2015, WiseWithData are leading experts in Apache Spark™ and Cloud migrations of legacy SAS based analytics. The SPROCKET Migration Solution is the world’s only solution that converts SAS code to highly optimized native Databricks Delta and PySpark Dataframe API output with over 95% automation.
