STAMFORD, Conn., Aug. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Services Group (ISG) (NASDAQ:III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm, will host two ISG Sourcing Industry Conferences (SIC), the industry's premier events for technology and service providers, this fall.

More than 400 industry leaders in all are expected to attend the SIC Americas event, October 15-17, at the Renaissance Austin Hotel in Austin, Texas, and the SIC EMEA event, November 5-6, at The Courthouse Hotel Shoreditch in London.

This year's SIC events will offer advisor and enterprise perspectives on the rapidly evolving dynamics of digital business and its implications for the technology and service provider community.

"Technology providers are increasingly delivering solutions to meet the virtual, voice-activated, mobile and data-driven world our large enterprise clients are pursuing every day," said Todd Lavieri, vice chairman of ISG and president of ISG Americas and Asia Pacific. "Technology leaders will continue to be challenged to deliver on today's demands, while gearing up for tomorrow's needs, especially as enterprises embrace agile environments, cloud solutions and automation to become more efficient and more responsive to ever-changing market conditions and customer requirements."

Lavieri, who will chair the SIC Americas event, said providers will realize immense benefit from engaging with ISG advisors at this year's SIC events. "The combined expertise of dozens of ISG advisors who are on the front lines of digital business will be in full force to further enlighten participants on how to meet the emerging digital needs of enterprise clients."

Steve Hall, president, ISG EMEA, and partner, ISG Digital Advisory Services, will chair the SIC EMEA event in London. "Our SIC events are all about sharing the most thorough, up-to-date perspectives on the continuing digitalization of the global IT and business services market," he said. "ISG works closely with enterprise clients and technology and service providers worldwide, so we have a unique view of how the industry is transforming itself to meet client expectations and requirements in the digital age."

Each SIC event will feature ISG thought leaders and guest speakers offering their insights in general session keynote presentations, panel discussions, workshops and breakout sessions. Pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings with ISG advisors are also part of each event. This year's conference themes will include partnering for success, sales and marketing effectiveness, return on investment, blockchain, automation and the user/customer experience.

The 2018 ISG Sourcing Industry Conferences are sponsored by CenturyLink and Sprint Business. Media partners include CIO Review, Outsourcing Institute, Innovation Leadership Forum and Outsourcing Digest.
