According to a recent report from IDC Canada research director Nigel Wallis, fewer than half of Canadian companies have invested in technology for real-time processing of high volumes of data.

The survey found that only 48 per cent of companies had invested in real-time analytics software, compared to 76 per cent worldwide.

The report also found that data management strategy was being created by mid-level IT management at 25 per cent of Canadian companies, compared to only four per cent worldwide. CEOs and CIOs create data management strategies more commonly worldwide – in 48 per cent of companies, compared to Canada’s 33 per cent.

And while 76 per cent of Canadian companies were using internally produced data, smaller numbers were addressing other types of data – social media (33 per cent), Web data (35 per cent), RFID tags (26 per cent) and GPS (17 per cent).
