MONTREAL, October 6, 2017 – Irosoft, a specialist in digital transformation and governance in the field of information management, is proud to announce the signing of a partnership with the Institute for Data Valorization (IVADO). IVADO is an industry and academic (HEC Montreal, Polytechnique Montreal and University of Montreal) initiative whose purpose is to develop a new economy evolving around big data processing to support decision making.

The partnership will enable the researchers and developers working in Irosoft’s Legal and Intelligence divisions to collaborate with IVADO’s researchers.

First, it will enable us to combine our extensive expertise in Natural Language Processing (NLP) as well as in data extraction and valorization with the new developments in artificial intelligence and data science while working with world-class researchers,” explained Alain Lavoie, president, and co-founder of Irosoft.

“I’m also proud of making this announcement with a Quebec SME and am grateful that IVADO thinks of our local SMEs. I hope that this is only the beginning of such partnerships. This is the way for Quebec’s know-how to flourish, here and internationally.” added Alain Lavoie.

“We are very happy to be associated with Irosoft and its expertise in the field of digital governance. This important collaboration will contribute to the evolution of data analytics in terms of consulting and legal services and create client offers that will be better suited to the requirements of the new digital age,” declared Gilles Savard, CEO of IVADO.
