NEW YORK, Jan. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Outsourcing Institute (OI) today announced its 2016 lineup of must-attend events including its annual Wall Street Tech and Digital BPO Innovations Conferences. Each day-long event gathers the who's who of industry experts to deliver impactful speakers, roundtables, case studies, and panel presentations for powerful learning and networking opportunities centered around digital transformation.

"2016 is a pivotal year for the sourcing marketplace as digital technologies disrupt and enable industries across the globe. Our conferences explore the move from hype to reality as emerging technologies converge to create a suite of services and capabilities that will change business, accelerate business outcomes, reduce cost, create new revenue opportunities and redefine how work gets done," said Daniel Goodstein, President of Media & Events at The Outsourcing Institute. "Many clients and providers are still behind the curve, and need to catch up. The next 12-18 months are critical, industry mindshare and market share are at stake and the old ways of solving business problems are fading quickly."

In its fourth year, The Wall Street Tech Conference, "Managing Risk & Reward in a Digital World," will address the complex balancing act facing Wall Street IT execs: determining how to innovate their businesses and implement advances in IoT, Cloud, Mobility, Automation and other emerging technologies, while avoiding cyber-security risk and regulatory and compliance pressures. Held in New York City on May 24, 2016, this industry focused forum connects CIOs, CTOs, tech sourcing executives and business leaders across the Banking, Financial Services and Insurance industries with new resources and industry leaders.

The fourth annual Digital BPO Innovations Conference to be held in New York City on October 6, 2016 will concentrate on the impact of digital services on Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) and how enterprises run in the new digital era. The event brings together leading business executives, BPO practitioners, influencers and thought leaders to learn, connect, share and transact. This year's conference theme, "The impact of Digital on Business Processes & the Key to Unlocking Operational Transformation," will focus on digital platforms and supply chains, optimizing processes, insights & analytics, disruptive and enabling technologies, multi-service governance and innovative pricing models.

"This is the year it all comes together. We have gone through the hype cycle of the last few years around Digital, Automation, IoT and Cognitive," said Program Co-chair Anupam Govil, a Partner at consulting firm Avasant. "Customers now want to see these solutions realized in a way‎ that's least disruptive to their business, yet helps them transcend into the digital economy. Finding a balance between cost, risks, transformation and innovation is going to be the underlying theme. This will be the year of back to basics but with a pathway to the digital future."

In addition to these two must-attend conferences produced by Outsourcing Institute, OI is teaming up with sister-organization, The Institute for Robotic Process Automation (IRPA), to host the Outsourcing, Automation, Innovation Seminar Series (OAISS) this Spring, a new regional roadshow and roundtable series focused on the intersection of outsourcing, innovation & automation. 

OAISS event details:

  • March 17 in Dallas;
  • April 12 in NYC,
  • April 27 in London, UK
  • June in Chicago

OAISS is a precursor to the annual OI Conferences, as well as the upcoming December NYC and London Automation Innovation Conferences hosted by IRPA.
