Forrester's Forum For Sourcing & Vendor Management Professionals EMEA 2013




Your leaders demand new strategies, new architectures, new ecosystems, and new competencies. You now play a central role defining and executing on new sourcing strategies to deliver tomorrow’s digital-fueled business outcomes in the digital age.

Digital capability — social, mobile, cloud, data, and analytics — disrupts business models and value streams, introduces new competitive threats, and comes with new demands from your customers and employees. Digital also changes the path your leaders must take to achieve future business outcomes. Developing these digital capabilities requires sourcing professionals to access the strengths of their supplier ecosystem. Cost reduction outcomes now rest on maximizing value from strategic partners and on leveraging emerging models to transfer costs and ownership. And innovation increasingly now rests with accessing cutting-edge supplier capabilities embedding digital capability into future products and services.

At this Forum, Forrester analysts and industry executive speakers will help you learn how to address tomorrow’s digital-fueled business outcome challenges and how you can play a more relevant and vocal role with your business leaders.
