Shared Services and Outsourcing Week 2019

Europe's Largest Shared Services and Outsourcing Event

Digitally Empowered Service: Innovate, Transform, Deliver

Digitally empowered service is driving the fourth wave of business service optimisation. Long gone are the days of "labour arbitrage" and "back office cost savings" providing the basis of the industry.

The next generation of business services will be truly strategically valued and recognised parts of the business, a far cry from being relegated to "transactional, back-office" functions in far-flung locations, but a critical part of business-wide decision-making that impacts both the top and the bottom line.

Two strands will be at the heart of the Business Services Organisation of the future. Discover how SSOW 2019 is at the heart of this development.

The hottest topics to be discussed at SSOW 2019

  • How to deliver complex business change - creating GBS organisations which drive leadership and value
