Everest Group CEO, research analysts, and other executives speak about digital adoption, service delivery automation, benchmarking, and other hot topics at upcoming sourcing events
While enterprises tend to be very optimistic about their digital initiatives early on in their digital adoption journey, enthusiasm often stalls as the going gets progressively tough, according to research conducted by Everest Group, a consulting and research firm focused on strategic IT, business services and sourcing.
At this year’s NASSCOM India Leadership Forum, Everest Group CEO Peter Bendor-Samuel will talk about this “trough” in digital adoption, explain why it happens, and suggest what enterprises and service providers must do differently to avoid derailing digital transformation journeys. Bendor-Samuel will lead the Analyst Corner session Beware the Digital Trough! at the NASSCOM event in Mumbai, India, on February 11.
On the same day in London, Sarah Burnett, research vice president (Europe), will lead the inaugural “Service Delivery Automation” Special Interest Group (SIG) meeting of the National Outsourcing Association.
