STAMFORD, Conn., Oct. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Services Group (ISG) (NASDAQ: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm, today announced the launch of ISG FutureSource™, the next-generation sourcing solution that accelerates the ability of clients to achieve the best business outcomes amid the speed and complexity of the digital age.

"ISG FutureSource™ is an entirely new approach to sourcing that delivers incredible value – both in terms of cost savings and speed to solution – for our enterprise clients," said Michael P. Connors, chairman and CEO of ISG. "We've combined the best of our industry-leading benchmarking and contract data, market intelligence and provider research with the unmatched expertise of our professional consultants to create the most collaborative, innovative and responsive solution yet."

In development for nearly a year, with input from clients and service and technology providers, the proprietary ISG FutureSource™ solution allows enterprise buyers to identify technology and service solutions more quickly; accelerate the process of provider selection, contracting and transition; and become more agile when it comes to service integration and management, addressing changing customer requirements and adopting emerging technologies.

"Today's global digital business environment demands a solution like ISG FutureSource™," said Connors. "Enterprise buyers of IT and business services need a sourcing solution that can keep pace with the rapid-fire changes in technology and operating models fueled by the digital revolution, a solution that is flexible enough to handle any business need. ISG FutureSource™ is that solution."

The innovative ISG FutureSource™ solution helps buyers more precisely define their sourcing-related business requirements, align them with potential solution providers, consolidate their options in an ever-expanding provider marketplace, evaluate responses and select the best-fit partner – quickly and efficiently to meet the needs of today's fast-moving digital enterprise.

ISG FutureSource™ is carefully designed to dramatically cut the time it takes for a client to make a sourcing decision and sign a sourcing contract. It gathers the right information, taps the creativity within the enterprise organization and among potential providers in an early-stage collaborative process, and takes time out of the equation so that each phase is carefully geared toward helping sourcing buyers make better decisions faster. The result: better business outcomes in less time.

ISG FutureSource™ draws on in-depth provider evaluations developed through ISG Provider Lens™ Buyer Archetype and Quadrant research, as well as ISG's rich store of data covering tens of thousands of operational assessments and sourcing transactions, to fast-track the sourcing-decision and provider-selection process.

ISG FutureSource™ will be unveiled at the upcoming ISG Sourcing Industry Conference (SIC), the premier industry event for service and technology providers, in Austin, Tex., October 11-13. For more information about ISG FutureSource™, contact ISG.
