This year, the focus of the GBS Forum is on disruption and the state of the industry. The move towards more automation is something that cannot be ignored and is clearly turning the traditional sourcing space on its head. It is indeed a positive disrupter and has the potential to disrupt the traditional sourcing model that mainly focused on offshore and labour arbitrage.
Automation and other disruptive technology is also forcing many to concentrate on smaller deals partnering with niche service providers. This new strategy seem logical to services buyers as they wade through their daunting digital strategies amid a wave of new technologies and operating models, hence the tendencies to avoid big long term contracts.
The future of sourcing is here and its impact is impressive. Our event is going to focus on bringing these topics to the forefront of the discussions, looking at what others have done and are doing in the industry, understanding what tools are available to support making these decisions and then integrating them effectively. This is also a perfect opportunity for you to meet, connect and fraternise with other industry leaders and peers.
