The 2015 Canadian ICT Predictions are:
"2014 was indeed the year of the breach,” says David Senf, Vice President, Infrastructure Solutions. “As Canada gets set to add mandatory breach notification in 2015 through the Digital Privacy Act, CEOs will open up to IT requests for additional security budget and leadership. The disparity in security practices and prowess between heavily regulated industries such as finance and health, versus business services and manufacturing, should narrow somewhat, and consumers will need to learn more "how to" security basics and training."
"Investments in the Internet of Things will accelerate as retailers look to improve their customer loyalty through geo-social mobile offerings,” says Nigel Wallis, Research Director for Vertical Markets and IoT. “Simultaneously, retail and wholesalers alike will need to update their supply chains in order to refine their inventory management and just-in-time logistics. The key to all of this will be moving from connecting to analyzing.”
The predictions presentation with detailed commentary is available to qualified members of the media. For information on purchasing the presentation, about the predictions, quotes, or to arrange a one-on-one briefing, please contact Andrea Loziuk at 416-673-2204 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
