Press Release

ISG to Participate in July 11 IAOP Webinar

Partner Alan Hanson will share ISG perspectives on Service Level Agreements

Company Release - 7/10/2018 9:00 AM ET

STAMFORD, Conn., July 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm, will participate in the IAOP webinar, "Achieving Your Value Proposition with Effective SLAs," on Wednesday, July 11, at 11 a.m., U.S. Eastern time.

The webinar, produced by the IAOP Voice of the Customer chapter, will feature a panel of experts, including Alan Hanson, lead partner of ISG's Banking and Financial Services practice in the Americas. Hanson will be joined by Lawrence Kane, senior leader, Strategic Sourcing Functional Excellence & First Time Quality, Boeing; David Althoff, vice president, Insurance SBU lead, Cognizant; and Neil Hirshman, partner and co-lead of Kirkland & Ellis' Technology & IP Transactions practice.

Hanson will discuss how to align performance metrics with business goals and address the growing impact of robotic process automation (RPA) and other emerging digital technologies on service level agreements (SLAs).

"Organizations are under constant pressure to measure and report on services in a way that has meaning to the end customer and demonstrates tighter alignment with business goals," said Hanson. "As such, they must go beyond standard approaches to consuming and contracting for services. This imperative is giving rise to a whole new generation of sourcing contracts governed and measured by performance-based metrics aligned with business outcomes."

ISG addresses the topic of SLAs in two recent white papers, "Making Service Levels Work for the Business" and "Performance Based Contracting: The Next Step in Sourcing."

The live webinar will reveal the latest thinking on SLAs from four perspectives: customer (Boeing), supplier (Cognizant), advisor (ISG) and legal (Kirkland & Ellis), and explore such issues as the "watermelon effect" in SLAs, trends in developing new SLAs, effective alternatives to SLAs, and at-risk philosophy and implementation.

The IAOP Voice of the Customer chapter is co-chaired by Humana, Pratt & Whitney, Boeing, MUFG Union Bank NA, Abbott, Greater Toronto Airports Authority, Transamerica, Pfizer, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Sprint Corporation.
