Highlighting individual personalities rather than companies, the panel features Phil Fersht, CEO, Horses for Sources, as the chairman from within the community.

Since its launch, every year, over 5,000 viewers have watched this session online and over 850 SSON members watch it live in Orlando.  This year the G6 will be comprised of six 10-minute interviews.

  1. How Technology is Impacting Standardization
  2. Analytics
  3. Talent
  4. What's Wrong with Innovation?
  5. Shifting the Mindset from Cost to Value
  6. Scalability and Flexibility.
