This IDC Survey Spotlight examines how Canadian IT decision makers view the benefits of 5G for their organization's IoT projects. This document contains data from IDC Canada's IT Advisory Panel (ITAP), which was completed in January 2021. IDC conducted this survey to better understand the current path of industrial and enterprise IoT deployments in Canada.
"While the community is generally positive, no single attribute of 5G has commanded the attention of Canadian IT decision makers. This should be a sign to Canadian communications technology vendors, that both hardware and services providers alike, need to use the industry-specific language of their prospects. They need to think of positioning marketing, sales, and service in terms of helping Canadian businesses enhance and automate their workflow, business processes, change management, and cultural change," explains Nigel Wallis, research VP, IoT and Industries at IDC Canada.
