October 15, 2018 – Ottawa, Canada:   Accenture has engaged WiseWithData (WWD) to help them with their client, Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporate (CMHC). Accenture has won a transformational project to deliver a Cloud Hadoop/Spark based analytical solution to CMHC, using Accenture’s Applied Intelligence Platform (AIP).

Many of CMHC’s analytical workflows are SAS based, a 50 year-old legacy analytics technology that is not cloud native. WiseWithData is to help Accenture migrate mission critical SAS processes into AIP. With PySpark at the core AIP, cloud native code is typically 100x faster than SAS, and will provide immediate benefits to CMHC. WWD’s deep expertise in SAS to PySpark migrations, are to be leveraged to quickly and seamlessly reshape processes to take advantage of AIP.


“It’s exciting to be recognized by Accenture as the leaders in SAS migrations to the Cloud. This further reinforces the strategic direction we recently took to sharpen our focus on the SPROCKET SAS to PySpark migration solution.”

Ian J. Ghent – President – WiseWithData
