In this section you can learn and improve your understanding of the link between digital technologies and productivity from actual technology adoption experiences that are featured in these learning documents, videos and success stories.

You will see real examples of Canadian companies going through the technology adoption process. Some of these important steps include: identifying areas for productivity improvement; and assessing methods, technologies and operational changes on how to implement and integrate the new systems. As you will see, the journey doesn't end there, as training and ongoing continuous improvement plans are essential to ensure the best possible results for your technology investment.

The Digital Technology Adoption Pilot Program (DTAPP) was created as a three-year pilot program to deliver support from November 2011 to March 31, 2014. DTAPP funding is no longer available. For help finding other available innovation resources and support programs, please visit the Concierge Service website.
