Cloud computing is the use of computing resources that are delivered to customers with the help of internet technologies. When a company moves to a cloud-based service model it means that the company moves away from a traditional capital expenditure model to an operating expenditure model.

Cloud computing offers its services through three fundamental models: SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS. SaaS is a model through which software applications, databases, or other data are made available to a customer through the use of the internet. IaaS is the provision of computing infrastructure with the help of internet technologies. PaaS is the delivery of a computing platform.

The analysts forecast the Cloud Computing market in Canada will grow at a CAGR of 17.8 percent over the period 2013-2018.

This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the Cloud Computing market in Canada for the period 2014-2018. To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated from SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS. The three main segments considered in this report are described below:

  • SaaS: Includes revenue generated from various software applications provided over the cloud such as business intelligence, content, communication and collaboration, customer relationship management, enterprise resource planning, human resources management, project and portfolio management, and supply chain management
  • IaaS: Includes revenue generated from the use of IT infrastructure such as compute, print, and storage infrastructure provided to clients
  • PaaS: Includes revenue generated from the deployment of platforms for application development, application infrastructure middleware, business intelligence, and database management systems.

The report, the Cloud Computing Market in Canada 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report focuses on the Cloud Computing market in Canada landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

Virtualization is an essential strategy for increasing IT efficiency and a precursor to cloud computing. It has made significant inroads in Canada, and it is difficult to find an enterprise or data center that is not using virtualized server technologies. The number of virtual machines is also expected to grow further and it is becoming more of a necessity than an option for end-users to adapt to virtualization. With a virtual environment, organizations can easily scale up to meet new demands regarding mobility applications. Therefore, the drift toward the increasing adoption of a virtualized environment is expected to continue during the forecast period.

According to the report, the growth of the Cloud Computing market in Canada is driven by several factors, one of which is increasing adoption of cloud-based solutions in SMEs. To deliver better services and achieve greater operational efficiency, SMEs are adopting cloud solutions.

Further, the report states that one of the most common barriers to the growth of the market is the privacy and data transfer issue. The government of Canada has strict rules and regulations related to cross-border data transfer.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
