STAMFORD, Conn., Sept. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 200 industry professionals are expected to gather in Dallas later this month to discuss how digital disruption is reshaping the global services marketplace at the 2016 ISG Sourcing Industry Conference (SIC), hosted by Information Services Group (ISG) (NASDAQ: III), a leading technology insights, market intelligence and advisory services company.
"Go Digital: Engage, Connect, Deliver," is the theme this year for the sourcing industry's premier event, which will take place September 26-27 at the Westin Stonebriar in Frisco, Texas, just outside Dallas. Designed specifically for service providers, software and technology companies, cloud providers, and others looking to benefit from ISG's market research and industry insights, SIC 2016 allows participants to learn firsthand about today's most pressing customer concerns and how digital technologies are changing the sourcing industry landscape.
This year's speakers include Craig Maccubbin, vice president and chief technology officer of Southwest Airlines, who will deliver the opening keynote address on Tuesday, September 27. Maccubbin will share his experience overseeing an aggressive digital transformation program at Southwest Airlines.
"Digital technologies and as-a-service solutions are rapidly transforming the global services industry," said Todd Lavieri, president of ISG Americas, Australia and New Zealand, and a featured speaker at this year's event. "Enterprise clients, seeking their own digital transformations, are demanding their service providers be an integral part of the change. That means shifting their focus from providing services driven principally by human labor to developing new services that are cloud-based, highly automated and increasingly interconnected."
Added Lavieri: "Traditional providers are facing new competition from cloud providers, Software-as-a-Service providers, and a host of niche intermediaries that promise to deliver work and services faster, more nimbly and at lower cost than the industry behemoths. The industry is growing increasingly fragmented and price-sensitive, and only those providers able to rapidly change their business models, partner with their customers on technological innovation, and offer software and infrastructure on demand will survive over the longer term."
The presentations, panel discussions and workshops at SIC 2016 are designed to help service providers "navigate these tectonic shifts and plot a course for future success," Lavieri said. Participants will have time to connect one-to-one with ISG thought leaders, peers and guest speakers from all disciplines of the sourcing industry.
