Global research powerhouse IDC released their Ten Canadian Mobile Consumer and Enterprise Solutions to Watch list last month. The IDC study profiles 10 relatively small emerging Canadian companies offering mobile consumer and enterprise solutions that they believe have the potential to make an impact in the information and communications technology market.
“Most wireless solutions, with the exception of a few such as email, Internet access, and SMS, are still in the early adopter and early majority stages in Canada,” says Krista Napier, analyst, Canadian ICT Innovation and Export at IDC Canada. “Emerging companies looking to quickly establish themselves in the market will need to educate customers and deliver practical and affordable solutions that add value at home, at work, and everywhere in between. Many Canadian companies are doing just that.”
The companies to watch are:
- Aegis Mobility – Vancouver
- Amika Mobile – Ottawa
- Bayalink – Waterloo
- Blackline GPS – Calgary
- Complete Innovations Inc. – Richmond Hill
- Contigo Systems – Vancouver
- IMS – Waterloo
- MoboVivo – Calgary
- Redwood Technologies – Calgary
- Unify4Life – Markham
The 33-page report was written by IDC Canadian ICT Innovation analyst Krista Napier and it’s available for $3,500. Ouch. Copy anyone?
