FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 22, 2022 – Ottawa, Canada: Wise With Data Inc. celebrates 7 years of helping customers modernize their legacy SAS analytics. Leveraging their sophisticated automated SPROCKET engine, WiseWithData has helped dozens of customers to quickly migrate from legacy and embrace the leading PySpark analytics platform.
WiseWithData is also pleased to open our new headquarters into Zibi, Canada’s largest Zero-carbon community near downtown Ottawa. With the space to onboard over 50 people, the new headquarters sets the stage for a new “scale-out” phase of sustainable growth. Along with the new HQ, WiseWithData employees will continue to enjoy the flexibility of remote work. Under a hybrid working schedule, employees are only required to be onsite 2 days a week.
To celebrate the opening of the new office, and to mark the 7th anniversary, WiseWithData staff were treated to an evening of fun and entertainment at the nearby Cirque Du Solie Kooza, another great Canadian innovation story.
WiseWithData’s CEO Ian J. Ghent comments:
“Seven years is a remarkable achievement, and the entire WWD team should be incredibly proud. The celebration was a fantastic time to take stock of all our achievements. We often talk about our competitors as being just a circus of brute force amateurs, but what we witnessed with Cirque Du Soleil Kooza was quite the opposite – professionals at the highest level.
Since day 1, our mission has been to Ignite Open Analytics, and free customers from the shackles of legacy. We are now are we starting to see the tsunami of legacy SAS customers, needing to quickly modernize. These exciting changes help us to align to the needs of these customers.”
