STAMFORD, Conn., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Services Group (ISG) (NASDAQ: III), a leading technology insights, market intelligence and advisory services company, today announced that ISG Partner Thomas Young will deliver the keynote address at the Outsourcing Institute's Wall Street Technology Conference and Exchange. "Purchasing services is becoming increasingly complex for financial services organizations," said Young. "As an industry leader with an extensive membership network of forward-looking professionals, the Outsourcing Institute is ideally positioned to provide a forum to help clients and service providers understand the issues and define effective strategies to address a rapidly changing marketplace." The Wall Street Tech Conference will examine five themes -- sourcing, cloud, mobility, big data and security/compliance – and will focus on the specific opportunities and challenges each of the "T5" themes poses for financial services organizations. "We're delighted to have ISG and Tom Young on board to share their unique combination of advisory, consulting and analytical insight and expertise," said Frank Casale, Founder and CEO of the Outsourcing Institute. "Each T5 area has its own unique dynamic, is in a different phase of its lifecycle and has a distinct ecosystem of players. By bringing together a diverse range of industry experts to shed light on these nuances, this event well help CXOs effectively compete, manage costs and utilize limited resources." Young's address will examine how executives can remain relevant in a challenging environment where the pace of change is exceeding the pace of learning. "The things we think we 'know' are becoming more and more stale," said Young. "In a rapidly changing world, buyers are no longer in a position to identify the optimal transformational solution. I anticipate a provocative and engaging dialogue with OI's members, where we will examine the disconnects in today's market, discuss where those disconnects most acutely manifest themselves, and assess the implications for the way we do business."
