STAMFORD, Conn., Nov. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Services Group (ISG) (NASDAQ: III), a leading technology insights, market intelligence and advisory services company, and the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP), the global, standard-setting organization and advocate for the outsourcing profession, today announced the official launch of the 2015 IAOP/ISG State of the Industry Survey, an annual global study that asks sourcing industry professionals for their opinions on key industry trends, opportunities and challenges.
The survey was distributed today to more than 50,000 outsourcing service providers, enterprise clients and advisors. The deadline to complete the survey is December 15, 2014.
As an incentive, those who respond by December 1 will be entered to win a $250 donation to the charity of their choice. All participants will receive a copy of the final survey report and will be entered in a raffle to win one of two free seats to IAOP's 2015 Outsourcing World Summit, February 16-18 in Phoenix, Ariz., where the survey results will be announced.
In addition, enterprise clients (the buyers of outsourcing services), who respond to the survey will receive a complimentary one-year subscription to AccessISG™ Online, ISG's platform for on-demand information, research, tools and advice.
"We are delighted to be a partner in the 2015 State of the Outsourcing Industry Survey and provide expert commentary on the results based on our own market intelligence and in-depth knowledge of industry trends," said Paul Reynolds, chief research officer of ISG. "This is the first step in a partnership aimed at increasing overall understanding of the global sourcing marketplace, a process we expect will lead to a higher level of performance for all industry players – enterprises, service providers and advisors alike."
"Everyone outsources," said Mike Corbett, IAOP's founder and chairman. "But the way businesses outsource is constantly changing. From social, mobile, analytics and the cloud, to socially responsible outsourcing, the playing field is constantly changing. This annual survey is the benchmark professionals around the world rely upon."
The survey is open to all of IAOP's global members and affiliates, ISG clients, and all outsourcing professionals across the field and around the world.
