We are a group of passionate engineers and computer scientists who love solving tough problems.
Our focus on value creation and client success has brought us together at Integra with a big mission to accelerate the adoption of AI/ML in the Oil & Gas industry.
Why Oil & Gas?
As local Calgarians, we understand how important the Oil & Gas industry is to our community and our country.
We also know how much untapped data exists from operations.
We believe in the power of analytics - specifically Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) - so we have made it our mission to bring the latest innovation in AI/ML to our colleague engineers dealing with daily operational challenges.
We don’t just solve a problem. We transform how work is done.
Our out-of-the-box thinking and years of data and analytics projects has given us the ability to transform every aspect of our projects and solutions. We redefined data science delivery methodologies, use cutting edge technologies, and have the high caliber resources that settle for nothing less than perfect.
We think fast and act fast.
We don’t waste time, quickly changing direction when required to preserve value and exceed our client’s expectations in delivering valuable solutions. We understand the dynamic nature of data science and problem solving. We, therefore, have adopted agile methodologies with our own tweaks to ensure our clients have the freedom to explore options and change directions as they see necessary.
We offer very competitive prices but never sacrifice quality. What our clients receive is always built to a high standard and is backed by over 20 years of experience from major consulting firms. Our client interactions, deliverables, code, and solutions are error-free and project our meticulous attention to details.
Let’s face it: Data science is still experimental and requires trial and error. We have made it our mission to lower the cost of these experiments by offering accelerators and increasing the probabilities of success by focusing on areas of operations that have adequate data and history of success.
We know how to define a successful scope that will generate high rates of returns.
