NEW YORK, Feb. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Outsourcing Institute (OI) today announced its newest event, the Digital Convergence Conference: Enterprise Transformation through IT, BPO and Digital, as part of its programs focused on the New Outsourcing, as well as its 2017 Outsourcing, Automation, Innovation Seminar Series (OAISS) regional roadshow that explores the intersection of outsourcing, digital innovation and automation. To learn more about these events, visit: www.outsourcing.com/events.
The Digital Convergence Conference will be held in New York City on September 27, 2017. The event will be sponsored by PwC, and co-chaired by Anupam Govil, Partner at Avasant and Gregory North, a former Chief Process Officer and Principal of The Outsourcing Institute's Digital Transformation & Innovation Practice.
The conference is designed to help service providers and clients make the transition to the "uberization" of the enterprise, providing insight into the new ways work is getting done through the convergence of IT outsourcing/emerging tech, business process/operations outsourcing and digital technologies.
"We started the outsourcing journey 23 years ago, when it was all about labor arbitrage and the focus was on cost and offshore labor," said Frank Casale, Founder of The Outsourcing Institute. "That model no longer works – but if you think outsourcing is dead, you're wrong – it's just been reinvented. Welcome to the New Outsourcing – a digitally fueled service offering powered by new technology, new business models, new pricing, less labor arbitrage, more cloud, and more service as software."
The Digital Convergence Conference will examine the impact of digital technologies, exploring go-to-market strategies; digital revenue models; new methods of handling governance, risk, and compliance; customer experience management and combining front, middle and back office/internal operations through IT as a service, business process as a service, crowdsourcing, automation and cognitive, IoT, analytics, cloud and platform-fueled technologies.
"The Digital Convergence Conference is the place for senior buy-side executives, influencers, business and thought leaders to learn, connect & pave the way for true digital transformation within their organizations and make the transition to the New Outsourcing," said Daniel Goodstein, President of Media & Events at The Outsourcing Institute. "Conference attendees will hear from industry experts, get first-hand information about the latest case studies, participate in roundtables, and benefit from powerful learning and networking opportunities centered around digital convergence."
In addition to the Digital Convergence Conference, The Outsourcing Institute is once again partnering with its sister-organization, The Institute for Robotic Process Automation (IRPA) and Symphony Ventures, to host this year's OAISS regional roadshow focused on the intersection of outsourcing, digital innovation & automation.
The OAISS events are intimate and interactive forums centered around creating a dialog that combines both education and execution for participants and designed for those looking to learn about the latest trends in digital and automation fueled services, and how to get started on their digital or automation journey. The OAISS events start on April 6, 2017 in Dallas, Texas. To see the complete listing of events in San Francisco, New York, Chicago and London, UK, please visit www.outsourcing.com/events
