Innovating and thriving with technology

Whether it’s feeding, fueling, healing, or moving, Calgary is solving the world’s greatest challenges through the creation and adoption of transformative technologies. From software to hardware and services, digital transformation is quickly becoming the largest driver of new solutions and technology investments among Calgary businesses. In fact, it’s projected that Calgary businesses will spend nearly $7.5B on digital transformation (DX) from 2019 to 2022, representing a 20% compound annual growth rate. Given its concentration of headquarters and industrial sector base, Calgary is at the heart of the industrial digital transformation and home to many made-in-Calgary success stories.
