Canadian Infrastructure Outsourcing Forecast, 2016–2020
This IDC study provides a forecast for the Canadian infrastructure outsourcing market for 2016–2020. IDC anticipates that the Canadian infrastructure outsourcing market will grow by 1.4%, or almost C$130 million, and will surpass C$9.5 billion in revenue by the end of 2016. We anticipate that the information systems outsourcing (ISO) segment will decline by 2.2% and slip under the C$5.5 billion mark by the end of 2016. IDC further expects that the network and desktop outsourcing services (NDOS) segment will close in on the C$2.5 billion mark in revenue in market value in 2016. Hosting rounds out the three primary categories of the Canadian infrastructure outsourcing market. Hosting is anticipated to grow by more than 14.2% in 2016, reaching C$1.56 billion in market value."The decline in areas such as mainframe and desktop outsourcing is being offset by double-digit climbs in discrete colocation hosting and IaaS," says Mark Schrutt, research vice president, Services and Enterprise Applications.
