Thank you for making The 2015 Outsourcing World Summit a Success!
See you at OWS16!
Each year, the industry's leading thinkers and doers gather for an event many describe as the highlight of their year. Attendees have called it "a calendar must" and “the conference that raises the bar for the entire industry.”
In its 18th year, The Outsourcing World Summit® is the premier event devoted to educating outsourcing professionals on the latest trends and best practices shaping the industry today and into the future. With over 800 participants, the Summit is the industry’s best-attended conference where attendees network with peers, earn certification credits and influence the direction of the industry as it continues to evolve.
Though there has been an evolution in the outsourcing industry, one thing hasn’t changed: outsourcing is a winning strategy.
We're being inundated with a stream of new technologies and innovative approaches from shared-services to cloud sourcing, insourcing to hybrid sourcing, automation to service integration that challenge the very principles on which organizations operate as well as present unparalleled growth opportunities. Traditional outsourcing relationships have developed into strategic partnerships. Collaboration is key.
