This IDC Survey presents the results of a cluster analysis of Canadian companies' use of managed network services. The objective of the document is to identify clusters of companies, with respect to their use of managed network services, to allow service providers to develop specific go-to-market campaigns to address the unique needs of each cluster. Four clusters were identified, and common characteristics and attitudes of the clusters are highlighted in the document. The document is based on IDC Canada's IT Advisory Panel, in which 368 medium-sized and large Canadian companies were interviewed.
