SSO China 2011: Strategic Shared Services & Outsourcing Summit
18 - 21 April 2011

Crowne Plaza Suzhou, People’s Republic of China

Thought to be the "Next India", the China outsourcing/offshoring market presents many organisations with proposition that is diverse, complex AND difficult.

What this all this points to is that, just like in the manufacturing sectors in previous years, China's entry into the Shared Services & Outsourcing market is potentially a game-changer.

By joining the SSON’s premier event in China, you will get access to over 25 industry thought-leaders' with field-tested strategies to:

- Transform your back-office function through better process, less resources and cost efficiency

- Combat high attrition rate more effectively and smartly

- Continually drive greater value and sustain growth of your existing centres

- Benchmark and identify hidden gaps to improve service quality and operation process

International Outsourcing Forum 2011
9 - 11 March 2011

Mazagan Beach Resort, 2 4000 El Jadida (Casablanca), Morocco

There is no doubt that companies are now under huge pressure to show evidence of cost reduction, but this also needs to be achieved through a sustainable model. While there will be some 'knee-jerk' deals done as a reaction to the economic downturn, supplier value propositions are under the microscope as clients look ensure not only value for money, but also strategic success.

In addition, the amount of highly skilled labour currently unemployed around the world has made staffing a shared service centre or centre of excellence somewhat easier, in turn making the competitive landscape for IPAs (Investment Promotion Agencies) more fierce.

As an outsourcing supplier or IPA, does the market truly understand your value proposition? Are you speaking to the right people, at the right time, to get your value proposition across?

As a company looking to outsource, do you know whom to go ahead with, how and where?

Now in its 8th year, IOF 2011 will provide an ideal opportunity for senior executives charged with outsourcing responsibilities to meet with major outsourcing supplier organisations and IPAs from all over the world.

Delegates from various industries including BFSI, telecom and retail will be present at the forum.

The supplier's solutions will cover all facets of ITO, BPO, RPO and KPO.

Global Services Conference 2011
27 January 2011

Grand Hyatt New York, At Grand Central Terminal, 109 East 42nd Street, New York, NY 10017, United States

The reset economy brought in lot of changes to the sourcing world. Traditional drivers of outsourcing are no longer sufficient for companies that have been outsourcing IT and business processes over the last decade. Cost reduction and process efficiencies are operational benefits and they are now table stakes. As companies come out of the recessionary environment, they are asking for more from their outsourcing partners. Business outcomes like reduced transaction costs, process optimization, and other forms of business efficiencies are a given. The new shiny lever being pulled is that of 'business transformation' - the ability to achieve breakthrough business value by aligning IT, business processes, and global sourcing in unique ways.

Thus, business transformation through global sourcing is the overriding theme of Global Services Conference 2011.

There are other forces playing out in the industry that define the next generation of services delivery and enable business transformation. Cloud computing has implications not only for IT services but also for business processing; cloud-based delivery models present a discontinuous and disruptive shift that will redefine how IT and BPO services are delivered. The conference will present actionable propositions to leverage cloud-based models.

Similarly, the convergence of IT and business process outsourcing presents myriad opportunities for companies to seek better value. Other topics like emerging destinations, supply risk monitoring, governance and program management, and contract management amongst others would help the senior sourcing professional to gather perspectives that are current and recommended as best practices.
