IDC, Date of Publication: Aug 17, 2017, 17 Pages

This study outlines IDC Canada's forecast for the Canadian information, communications, and technology (ICT) market for the 2017–2021 forecast period.

The Canadian ICT market hit a milestone in 2016 as it goes through a transition to the 3rd Platform. For the first time, ever, Canadian ICT spending surpassed C$100 billion last year. By 2021, the end of our current forecast period, ICT spending will be dominated by 3rd Platform and innovation accelerator technologies, making the Canadian market look very different than it does today.
