This IDC study examines the application outsourcing services market and provides a forecast for the period from 2013 to 2017. The application outsourcing services market in Canada continues to grow, posting a 2012-2017 CAGR of 4.7%, to reach a total market size of approximately C$2.4 billion at the end of 2017.

"Spending on application outsourcing (AO) services reflects healthy market conditions, but there are emerging market forces that could increase the pressure on AO vendors toward the end of the forecast period. The most pronounced trend is cloud computing, and its effect on application outsourcing will be monitored for the remainder of the forecast period," says Jim Westcott, research manager, Application Solutions.
