Play the word association game with the phrase Canadian Software and some are immediately reminded of the days when Corel’s WordPerfect looked like it was set to be the Pepsi to Microsoft’s Coke. While those days have gone the way of the leg warmer (what they’re back?), Canadian software companies have more than stepped up to fill the void. From Enterprise Resource Planning, to The Cloud, to SAAS, name any hot trend in software and there is a Canadian company that is making its mark globally.
