As sourcing motivations evolve beyond just cost savings, successful organizations are sourcing services to meet more complex needs. Executives are now increasingly turning to external providers for innovations, new skills and expertise, and true business partnerships to help them succeed.

The meeting will bring together 15 - 20 CIOs and IT leaders to share and gain insights on how to build innovation into strategic sourcing, why companies should have updated sourcing strategies in place, what impact outsourcing has on company results, and how the CIO’s role is changing in this ever-evolving business landscape.

The meeting will be keynoted by Alan Nance, Vice President Technology Transformation at Philips, Aart van der Vlist, CIO at UWV, and Marnix Gillis, Distinguished Engineer at IBM. They will share their experiences and insights in creating joint innovations through strong partnerships and will provide exclusive insights on how the sourcing world is changing and that of the CIO and on why companies should change their sourcing strategies. Attendees will have the chance to share, discuss and debate key sourcing and CIO issues amongst peers and experts. And finally, the meeting is rounded off with a champagne reception and an exquisite meal to continue the debate and to network.
