Artificial intelligence is a term that is top of mind, especially in Quebec and Ontario, where research is progressing quickly. Companies are looking forward to amazing advances, from productivity gains and process automation to predicting consumer behaviour. This revolution will touch all industries, but a new Léger survey conducted in collaboration with NOVIPRO has revealed that only a small portion of Canadian businesses are planning to invest in AI over the next two years. With competition increasing worldwide, this passivity on the part of Canadian companies is cause for concern.
According to IT Trend Perceptions in Canadian Large and Medium-Sized Businesses, a study conducted by NOVIPRO and Léger, 42% of Quebec companies don’t think that cloud computing is secure enough.
What company would leave its vehicle fleet without insurance? It sounds crazy, but that’s what often happens with data, which is left to circulate on the Internet without the right protection. Here’s what you need to know to draw up an action plan and keep your data safe.
The digital shift is ubiquitous, prompting more and more companies to shift their data, applications and sometimes even their IT infrastructure to the cloud. This isn’t a passing fancy—it’s a well-entrenched trend. Naturally, most companies will see pros and cons in making the switch. It’s best to weigh them out before making a decision.
According to the Canada-wide study we conducted in collaboration with Léger, 54% of respondents agreed with the statement “the future is in the Cloud”. Maybe the future is already here… we are firmly in the Cloud era and attitudes towards it are changing rapidly. Some of us believe that the adoption of Cloud was a simple matter of time, but discussions about its potential are evolving rapidly, especially now that we are confronted with the growing risks incurred by late deployment.
As was pointed out in previous texts, moving to cloud computing gives companies undeniable advantages.These advantages include enhanced security, enhanced back-up capabilities and access to greater expertise. Moreover, the diversity of the Cloud offering allows companies to not only meet most of their computing needs, but also to only pay for those they actually use… which leads to real savings. But beyond that, are there any financial benefits to be reaped from using cloud computing?
It is not by accident that cloud computing services have become so popular. They help reduce tangible assets, specifically computers and software, and improve data security and accessibility of the new features in just a few days. Even more interesting, they normally provide great savings that enable you to allocate funds to services that are more in line with your company’s mission. These amounts are often related to the complexity of capacity and performance management and maintaining robust services.
