This IDC study outlines IDC Canada's forecast for the Canadian information, communications, and technology (ICT) market for the five-year period from 2015 to 2019. IDC Canada's 2015-2019 ICT forecast is comprehensive and shows a market that is undergoing tremendous shifts as Canada moves from the 2nd to the 3rd Platform. The 3rd Platform, consisting of cloud, analytics/big data, social/collaboration, mobility, and Internet of Things, is the central topic of this forecast.
"In many respects, these technologies are still in their early stages and our current year estimates for these particular markets bear this out," says Mark Schrutt, research vice president, IT Services and Enterprise Applications. "Before we reach the end of our forecast period, 2019, a number of other factors including the price of oil and the economy as well as public sector spending will help reshape the market."
