The Kanata North BIA recently released a detailed report on the technology sector’s impact on the economy. In this article, Techopia highlighted 4 subsectors to watch and the companies paving the way in these high-performing fields. Software leads the charge by employing 2757 workers in Ottawa and realizing revenues of over $576.6 million.

On the changes in the technology sector and networking now in Kanata, Martello CEO Bruce Linton had this to say:  “I do think that Kanata is actually very interesting to go to social networking events now, because when you ask people what they do, it`s no longer `What part of telecom do you work on?’ It’s, ‘What is your tech company?’ I’m talking to people who are doing aviation systems to people who’ve got gaming applications to people who are trying to figure out the next trend on consumer behavior.”
