Our mission

Empower businesses with tools that manage and fully utilize their data


Our Story

As one of Canada’s longest standing AI companies, we are a team of entrepreneurs, data scientists, researchers, and programmers who have been building Enterprise Application Frameworks and Products for decades.

In 2003, our founders built the first commercial Python product for Enterprise (that we know of), which was acquired by Research in Motion in 2006. That same company performed the first open-source installations for the Canadian Federal Government and the incumbent telecom carrier. We live and breath Enterprise Computer and have been building out our Machine Learning platform since 2011.

In 2018, we took the 6th generation of that platform and produced the world’s first Data Trust product: Datatrust as a Service (DTaaS).
