Many businesses don’t know where to start or who to trust when making investments in new processes or digital infrastructure. There is a fear of spending hard won profits on the “wrong” technologies. The Digital Manitoba Initiative (DMI) was created to provide businesses with the resources and expertise needed to make sound technology investment decisions to compete in an increasingly digital world.
