TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 5, 2012) - Digital technology is transforming our businesses at lightning speed, changing the way we communicate, share information, and serve our customers. Canadian consumers are embracing this change and are among the most connected people in the world, but by most measures of innovation and productivity, there still exists a looming gap between Canada and its peers that governments and businesses are seeking to close. Now, more than ever, our businesses are being challenged to adapt quickly to a digital economy where e-commerce, social networking, and advanced new technologies are causing radical shifts across industries old and new.
