Established in 2020—in the middle of a worldwide crisis—Attrava’s sole mission revolves around ensuring the successes of businesses striving to leverage innovations such as cloud computing, machine learning (ML), and big data. Why Philip Paquette, the founder of Attrava, chose to start his company during this particularly trying period in time can be explained through his thorough comprehension of the IT services marketplace. Paquette maintains several years of experience handling cloud- and artificial intelligence-based projects for multiple startups in various industries. He also holds a master’s degree in AI and a bachelor’s in commerce and finance. Immediately recognizing that several high-growth startups and SMBs will demand additional expert IT support, Paquette decided to extend his expertise and address each new challenge through Attrava.
“Every business will have to adapt in order to prosper in the years ahead. Our mission is to ensure that customers reach their goals through the innovation of technology,” says the founder.
Attrava equips clients with the ability to tackle any big data, cloud transformation, ML, and application development hurdles through extensive and strategic IT consulting from a team of highly qualified professionals, most of whom are AWS-certified architects. The company particularly excels at enabling seamless cloud migrations and automating critical business processes for maximum productivity. Paquette strongly advocates that the best, most effective course of action to achieve desirable results lies in adopting the latest technologies. Thus, the company approaches its clients with services that strike a complementary balance between business and technology.
Attrava’s domain knowledge in cloud architecture is commendable, staying true to Paquette’s ethos. Businesses often lack a specific understanding or skillset in optimally transitioning their workflows into a more virtual environment.
“We help clients design and build a cloud infrastructure that implements the best practices in governance, security, logging, monitoring, and cost control,” adds Paquette. Concerning its application development services, the company assists professionals in building stable, cost-effective infrastructures, where Attrava augments their code writing competencies. This environment is then deployed on continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines. The company quickly realized how cloud technology changed the way software is written in the 21st century and accordingly advised clients on application development strategies through a DevOps perspective. Attrava, via this methodology, aids its clients build compliant infrastructures, leveraging the benefits of automation pipelines to deploy all the essential prerequisites. The company effectuates seamless implementations and integrations of cloud-native technologies across a business ecosystem. Attrava ensures that each new IT solution employed by its clients promises maximum scalability, security, and business process optimization.
Having anticipated the data explosion that ensued after companies started their digital transformation journeys, Paquette and his team value comprehensive data management dearly. Enterprises are currently expected to deal with the massive amounts of data circulating in their ecosystem from thousands of sources. The larger the business, more is the intensity and responsibility associated with big data management.
"Our mission is to ensure that customers reach their goals through the innovation of technology"
“We believe that comprehending the large amounts of data a business and its customers generate is a vital part of innovation,” states Paquette. To this end, Attrava helps clients build automated pipelines for ingesting data from multiple sources into a centralized data warehouse, empowering them to extract actionable insights after thoroughly analyzing the data. Through the expansive AI and ML knowledge accumulated between Paquette and his team, Attrava enables clients to successfully design their own sophisticated AI/ML models. As a result, businesses have more visibility into every operation daily— online or otherwise. The company brings the most probable outcome of a specific action, assesses how clients can better study and understand customer behavior to make personalized recommendations, designs robust interactive agents, and helps detect and react to any fraudulent activities.
Attrava’s uniqueness lies in its proficiency in the cloud, AI, and big data innovations. When interacting with existing and potential clients, its demeanor is extremely holistic; solid communication is everything. The company’s customer-centric approach studies their individualistic needs and preferences and curates customized services to address the same. Attrava focuses on long-term solutions with high scalability rather than a quick fix; doing so requires Paquette and his IT experts to study a client’s business processes carefully.They concentrate on personalizing their services, conducting a competitive analysis of the IT solutions available in the market, and inciting transformations within organizations.
To further elucidate the IT services and consulting competencies of Attrava, the following story of a SaaS solution provider perfectly showcases the benefits a company can expect when collaborating with Paquette’s enterprise. This particular client was aiming to revolutionize the user retention rates in the video game landscape with their visual analytics tool. The tool records gameplay sessions to notify developers of what processes are occurring at critical junctures in the game. It also logs and relays information based on a player’s gameplay duration and abandons. The tool allows developers to identify customer experience issues with more speed and accuracy. They can then use this data to increase retention strategies and profitability via simplified debugging while addressing challenging gameplay moments where players get stuck, confused, or frustrated.
As the client grew, the team quickly realized that architectural problems were holding the product back and wanted to secure and future-proof their services. In response to this challenge, Attrava completely restructured the backend code, migrated the infrastructure to the AWS cloud, redesigned the ingestion pipeline, and deployed the application on AWS Lambda and Kubernetes. The entire process was carried out quickly, efficiently, and well within the client’s budget. The improved version of the visual analytics tool, thanks to Attrava, now demonstrates significant improvements in performance, scalability, and player retention rates.

With such strong IT consulting capabilities, Attrava has fast-grown to be a reliable ally for a host of startups and SMBs in Canada and a few other parts of the world. Attrava maintains an industry-agnostic approach with the projects they undertake. The company intends to place more businesses in the most opportune position, allowing for unimpeded, continually accelerating digital innovation with its comprehensive portfolio. Moving forward, the company plans to establish itself as the go-to name in the Northern American markets, where it is set to grow alongside its clients in this highly competitive era of rapid modernization.
