IDC Names Enomaly in Ten Canadian Cloud Solutions to Watch List

This study provides a review of each company's technology and go-to-market strategy, partners, and customers

IDC has named Enomaly in a list of Canadian Cloud Solutions to Watch. This IDC study profiles 10 relatively small Canadian-based cloud solutions that it believes are worthy of highlighting to the broader industry and have the potential to make an impact in the information and communication technology (ICT) market.

This study provides a review of each company's technology and go-to-market strategy, partners, and customers. It concludes with some of the overarching trends IDC is seeing in this market, including the technology life-cycle adoption curve for cloud services in Canada and a word map of Canadian perceptions of cloud computing.

This study provides valuable input for ICT vendors, investors, government, and service providers to identify promising companies in the cloud, potential partners, and investment opportunities.

Founded in 2004 Enomaly is a global leader in the fast-growing Cloud Computing space. Enomaly’s software product, the Enomaly Elastic Computing Platform (ECP), available in Community, Service Provider, and Data Center editions, is the answer for carriers and hosting providers, and for enterprise end-user organizations, that want to benefit from the power, flexibility, and economies of cloud computing. First released in 2005 as the world’s first Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform, over 15,000 companies now use ECP to operate enterprise and hosting provider clouds, seamlessly bridge computing tasks between datacenters and cloud providers, and explore the benefits of cloud computing in the enterprise.

"Cloud computing is still only in the nascent stages in Canada, but is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years," says Krista Napier, senior analyst, Competitive Intelligence and Emerging Technology at IDC Canada. "Still, the barriers to adoption in the short run must not be underestimated, and this poses challenges for emerging ICT firms with limited track records that are bringing cloud solutions to market. Showcasing ROI and success stories and addressing security concerns will be key for emerging vendors to succeed in the cloud."
