Toronto-based technology start-up, Conscia, has added a new advisory board member to the company. Seasoned IT executive Mark Riggs joins the advisory board serving in a capacity to guide on continued internal growth and strategic expansion to new target markets covered by Conscia’s AI-powered Interaction Management platform.

Other positions held by Mark are founding member of Cambridge Management Consulting (CMC), a subsidiary of Cambridge Technology Partners (CTP), and roles at Electronic Data Systems (EDS), a division of HP.
“It is very exciting to be a part of such a unique technology that democratizes machine learning, data management, enrichment and integration by making it accessible to domain experts through a self-service ‘excel-like’ interface,” said Riggs. “Sana and the entire Conscia team understand the importance of business and IT working together to tackle otherwise convoluted business problems with a fraction of the cost and time compared to their competitors.”
