The first wave of rapid digital innovation is here in almost all industries. As an IT sourcing or vendor management leader, your role is vital to the success of digital business. You are the critical link between your organization’s internal capabilities and the external digital business ecosystem. You are key to the development and deployment of strategies to acquire and manage IT services to drive successful digital business outcomes.
This year’s Gartner Sourcing & Strategic Vendor Relationships Summit will address how sourcing can proactively become an agent and enabler of digital business. The agenda will focus on both traditional run-the-business sourcing and vendor management best practices as well as new models to increase sourcing’s proactiveness in supporting the organization’s digital business transformation.
The one event to attend to get a strategic view and tactical insight on sourcing, IT services and vendor management – throughout the sourcing lifecycle. No other event can offer such a broad and deep agenda, with trusted advice from Gartner analysts, and real world examples from our selected guest speakers.
Our 2017 Gartner Sourcing & Strategic Vendor Relationships Summit agenda features dedicated tracks for sourcing managers, procurement/contract managers, IT vendor managers, and a track on emerging trends and disruptive technologies. In addition, our exclusive Program for Senior Sourcing Executives provides a forum for the most senior level delegates to engage with Gartner analysts and peers in a series of presentations and discussions. Drill down on your hottest sourcing topics based on your role, experience level and key focus.
