Canada Information Technology Report Q2 2013: New research report available at Fast Market Research

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Thu May 09 2013

Canadian IT spending is expected to reach CAD46.1bn in 2013, a 2% increase over 2012's forecast, with BMI downwardly revising its outlook due to the macroeconomic cooling in H212 leading to continued expectations of household retrenchment in 2013. BMI expects Canada's IT market to remain in overall positive growth territory, although much will depend on the business environment. Government spending will continue to be constrained by a focus on cutting costs, with cost reviews being conducted by Toronto and Ontario, but there have been a spate of large tenders, highlighting continued opportunities within the sector. Meanwhile, there will be opportunities as the government seeks to foster the development of a marketplace for cloud services.
