Montréal, February 18, 2019 – Ai Outcome, a Montreal startup specializing in the optimization of infrastructure operations, and the Institute for Data Valorization (IVADO) are proud to announce their partnership.

After highly successful careers in infrastructure management for François Dépelteau and IT for François Labrie, the two François set out to transform best practices in major infrastructure operations in Canada and around the globe.

In the past decade, the industrialized world has been investing as never before to upgrade and expand all types of infrastructures. Owners now understand that, to ensure a high level of availability and extend the service lives of their infrastructures, they cannot allow any maintenance deficiencies since they themselves end up paying the price. Whether contracted out or delivered in-house, infrastructure operations and maintenance are critical to achieve these objectives. Still, experience has demonstrated that there is great potential for improvement and optimization.

AI Outcome emerged from the recognition of these limits and the drive to change and indeed disrupt management practices by relying on the power of data analysis.

“Now more than ever, the rapid development of mobile digital tools and the Internet of Things, which generate masses of data, provides a unique opportunity to redefine the industry and create value for infrastructure owners and operations service providers. In the end, all those who use infrastructures such as hospitals, airports, university campuses and office complexes will benefit,” affirmed François Dépelteau.

“IVADO provides a start-up like AI Outcome with leading-edge expertise that is virtually unique in the world to help us design practical solutions to concrete problems,” stated François Labrie, who also leads AI and big data training courses for the Executive Education Programs of HEC and UBC .

AI Outcome has already attracted the interest of multinationals and large corporations that are seeking to improve their operations management practices and see AI Outcome as a means to implement effective change.
