Canadian Public IT Cloud Services Forecast, 2017–2021
This IDC study forecasts revenue for SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS delivered as public cloud offerings to Canadian businesses for the 2017–2021 period. Through a comprehensive view of cloud in Canada, it is possible to see how the components are coming together as the foundation of the 3rd Platform and as a critical underpinning of digital transformation. "Canadians are increasingly looking for public cloud options to address their very pressing business and technology needs," said Jason Bremner, research vice president, Industry and Business Solutions. "Any IT vendor that hopes to compete in the Canadian ICT landscape, and does not address the public cloud in its strategic growth plans, risks its long-term viability."
