Sylphia Consultancy started in 2004 delivering web-based solutions, and over the years, our expertise has expanded, enabling us to serve clients across diverse industries, including finance, retail, telecommunications, and more. Although Sylphia Consulting Inc. (SCI) was founded in 2004, until 2018 the business was primarily conducted by the founder Rij Basak as an independent consultant to help clients such as large banks manage, govern, and execute projects and programs, providing organizational strategy consultations, help setup governance models, and risk frameworks. After a personal health crisis leading to near death experience of the founding partner, since 2018, Rij was inspired to take broaden SCI’s business model to bring positive impactful change to the planet and the society by becoming more data and ESG focused. Since then, SCI has expanded its team to over 20 consultants and principals, partnering with near and offshore service providers, as well as building a ecosystem of large, medium and small technology partners, primarily in Canada and the US. SCI has been serving a variety of clients and customers in Canada, US, and UAE by providing services in designing, building, delivering and integrating solutions by working with its product partners, as well as building its own solutions primarily in the area of artificial intelligence.
Our Three Primary Pillars of Business are
where we work with large enterprises and help them execute in specific technology domains (e.g., migration of data and applications to Amazon AWS). In this model, our consultants engage with customers on both Time & Materials (T&M) as well as Statement of Work (SoW) basis.
Solution development and integration
where we partner with product development companies, from large and established ones such as Microsoft (for Azure, PowerBI etc.), Snowflake, Amazon (for AWS) to newer, cutting-edge startups and smaller companies such as Parabole.ai, Wizsm, TypeSift etc. based on our clients’ needs, we design and develop solutions by integrating different products, and lead implementation and support.
Custom/Bespoke solution build
where we develop custom solutions for our clients from the ground up, using technology building blocks.
Besides the above, we also provide specialized training (Google Cloud Platform, Amazon AWS, or specific programming language such as Python, Java), workshops (organization or corporate strategy, data, or IT strategy), postproduction application and data support services in conjunction with our nearshore (Mexico) and offshore (India) teams. We are also developing our own products in the areas of computer vision-based AI for applications in healthcare, especially for developing countries (such as non-invasive hemoglobin detection, mental health assessment) and agriculture (disease detection through drone surveillance in remote areas). At this point most of our clients and customers are large enterprises or government entities. We also work with small and medium enterprises and startups in the US, Canada & the Middle East
