Then in February 2017, EXIA was named by an independent jury composed of professionals from various IT business sectors as SME of the Month for February, in the Spotlight on SMEs contest created by the Quebec Technology Association (AQT). This recognition was based on criteria concerning the company's growth and marketing strategy. On October 5, EXIA will find out if it takes home the prestigious title of SME of the Year from among the eight other finalists during the gala event at the annual Big Bang event.

"EXIA has become an important player in the digital transformation of companies by making the effective management of data and its availability the principal means by which companies can reach a highly competitive level in a globalized economy," said Éric Bélanger, President of EXIA. "This is the reality that inspired EXIA's offer, and we are committed to making available leading-edge solutions in analytics and business intelligence."
