GROWING TOGETHER To Create, Innovate, & Inspire Lixar Logo

OUR STORY_

The name Lixar is rooted in the word Elixir, which means, a solution for all things. Lixar was created to build technology that makes a difference, and we’ve been evolving ever since. From web and mobile development for enterprise, IoT and Cloud, and today, Data and AI. We provide complete data-driven solutions from end-to-end. We love technology because it is always changing. We embrace change because there are always new things to learn and new ways to grow. We’ve always made it a priority to work with purpose; to create an environment that is creative and innovative, and to support and nurture our dynamic teams whether in Canada or abroad.

In 2020, Lixar joined the BDO Canada Family as part of their advisory group, to grow and accelerate Lixar’s services in Canada, from Data and AI, to Cloud and AppDev. What’s different? Having combined forces, reflected in our new logo — Lixar fueled by BDO — we continue to lead with our passion for technology, understanding its pace and the opportunities it provides. 

Lixar is a data-driven tech company, with over 20 years of enterprise-scale experience upon which we serve our clients. BDO brings to the table almost 100 years of experience as a leading provider of assurance and accounting, tax, and advisory services in Canada. With significant insight into the needs of mid-market organizations across the country, this expansion of Data and AI expertise will support BDO’s digital transformation, and their ability to readily respond to dynamic market changes. BDO’s presence in Canada includes over 100 locations, and is part of BDO’s international network with operations in 167 countries. 

Our partnership is built on adaptability and forward momentum. Lixar continues to grow as Lixar fueled by BDO, operating as a nimble, creative, and innovative organization.

Lixar believes in community and supports those who require a helping hand from time-to-time, such as the Boys and Girls Club. We also understand the importance of music and its impact on culture, and are very fortunate to support the Polaris Music Prize and the national artist residency program. This program is designed to help emerging artists find time to work with innovative systems and industry representatives and to create, produce and record new music.

OUR TEAM_

OUR PARTNERSHIP_

Our relationship with Microsoft began with our understanding that to be a leader in technology, we needed to be a leader in secure cloud solutions. Our Azure expertise opened the door for us to truly accelerate our vision for data and AI solutions, and aligned us with one of the largest tech companies in the world. Since then, our partnership has only grown. Today, Lixar is a top Microsoft partner, with advanced specializations, certifications, and accreditation. As such, we are jointly dedicated to modernization and leadership in data, AI, cloud, and application development, from coast to coast. Our cultural alignment is also a key component to the success of this relationship, emphasizing  diversity and inclusion, as well as creativity and innovation. Our HeroPath offering is a modern data platform powered by Microsoft Azure and best-in-class components, from databricks to Power BI. Together, Lixar and Microsoft are advancing security, innovation, and data-driven services, across Canada, and beyond. We greatly value this partnership, the opportunities it provides, and the clients it serves.
