Sourcing Decisions 2017 is a brand new conference designed to meet U.S. and Canadian enterprise leaders where they are today – wrestling with complex issues and varied pressures to align resources so their enterprises can thrive. Sourcing Decisions 2017 is meant specifically for enterprises seeking to increase agility and adaptability by advancing their knowledge in robotics automation, artificial intelligence and newly emerging digital platforms to better engage with customers. In acknowledging the outdated nature of traditional ‘outsourcing’, our forum will spearhead a ‘next-generation’ dialogue on global sourcing by more sharply defining how cloud, global consultancies, business-process and country partners can assist in achieving better outcomes for customers and investors. We also begin 2017 with a new president and a new agenda in the United States, disrupting a series of cornerstone assumptions around the stability of trade and economics between the U.S. and Canada. We will look at how this will manifest across the global services industry. Finally, our conference looks to highlight the momentum of the Greater Toronto Area in achieving global recognition as a technology hub, and how it is positioned to strengthen technology-related partnership development in Latin America and the Caribbean.
