After two weeks at Forrester’s IT Forums (in Las Vegas and Barcelona) the Sourcing and Vendor Management research team came back more energized than ever. Why? We were able to spend a week interacting with our clients, who all face diverse challenges, yet remain very optimistic about the strategic value they can provide to their IT and business counterparts. While it's an exhausting week for all of our analysts, we love this week (second only to our own team's Sourcing and Vendor Management Forum in November) because of the chance to interact with all of you.
Coming back from this conference, I realized a few key themes had dominated my conversations with clients:
If you're interested in these topics — and other hot topics like sourcing tools, offshore innovation, multisourcing shifts, and sourcing's role in unified communications — please consider coming to our November Sourcing and Vendor Management Forums in Miami and London. We always manage to pack in great content at this event but have a lot of fun too.
Were you able to attend the IT Forum events? Did anything trends catch your eye during these sessions that you’d like to share? Please drop us a note and we’ll keep the discussion going.
