"Canadian organizations are going to continue their shift toward SaaS as their traditional software applications come to end of life. In some cases, organizations will adopt a "SaaS first/only" approach for certain workloads or when they seek to introduce new workloads into the organization. Factors such as user experience, integration, automation, and data residency will be critical for the successful adoption of SaaS." — Megha Kumar, research director, Software and Cloud, IDC Canada
