"The resulting migration from a small number of large suppliers to a large number of small suppliers, and from on-premises to off-premises is counter-cultural for those set on a strategy of vendor simplification and commonality."
New York, New York (PRWEB) January 27, 2015
The World BPO/ITOForum, having established itself as the "Davos of Global Sourcing", is holding its 8th annual knowledge-sharing, thought-leadership conference, The Global Sourcing & Cloud Summit on June 16-17, 2015 in New York City overlooking Central Park. This 2015 Summit will highlight the disruptive forces changing the traditional sourcing industry paradigms: Cloud-based enterprise solutions and Service-oriented Architecture (SOA). This shift comes as CxO's and sourcing professional decision-makers are beginning to see the benefits of these technological advances including: business agility, faster outcomes, less capital investment, and greater flexibility.
With a faculty that includes an impressive list of thought leaders (see Steering Committee and Executive Advisory Board) from leading global organizations, The Global Sourcing & Cloud Summit is an invitation-only gathering designed for knowledge-sharing and discussion around the topics that are changing how major corporations evolve their sourcing strategies. Discussion topics will include Data Sovereignty, Security, Technology Trends, and Leveraging the Cloud as a sourcing game-changer.
Jim Noble, the Summit Chair and Former CIO of GM, AOL Time Warner, Merrill Lynch, BP & Philip Morris; Principal, The Advisory Council and Author states, "The resulting migration from a small number of large suppliers to a large number of small suppliers, and from on-premises to off-premises is counter-cultural for those set on a strategy of vendor simplification and commonality. This levels the playing field, because large-cap companies no longer have an unfair advantage of scale, affordability, and the pick of the best vendors." He adds, "In this new normal of embracing complexity, the buyer has to be even smarter than ever before, by orchestrating multiple suppliers."
Echoing Mr. Noble's sentiments, Kartik Kilachand, Co-founder and CEO of The World BPO/ITO Forum, says, “Global business sourcing is evolving rapidly due to disruptive technological advances, and in order to remain competitive, corporations must adapt." He continues, "Our mission is to identify future trends so that our members can position themselves ahead of the curve. Our focus this year on Global Sourcing and Cloud is a direct result of keeping in synch with our over-arching objective of being in tune with today's global business environment."
