HANOVER, MD – August 29, 2012 – TEKsystems®, a leading provider of IT staffing solutions, IT talent management expertise and IT services, today announced it is sponsoring the 2012 Gartner Outsourcing and Strategic Partnerships Summit on September 10-12 at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Orlando. TEKsystems will also exhibit at the summit in the Solutions Showcase room at Booth K.
This year’s Outsourcing and Strategic Partnership summit will focus on how CIOs and IT and business leaders can achieve business success through sound sourcing strategies, leveraging industry best practices and developing strong, strategic partnerships with key service providers. A primary area of focus will be on strategic vendor management and how organizations can distinguish strategic providers, decide which ones are actually strategic partners and what is necessary for a successful managed service program.
In addition to being a Silver Sponsor and exhibitor, TEKsystems’ Executive Director of Global Services, Roger Byrnes, will be delivering a presentation as part of the summit’s solution provider sessions on September 12. The presentation will focus on how to choose the right service delivery model, what criteria IT and business leaders should use to evaluate vendors and how to best turn tactical vendor relationships into more strategic partnerships.
“There are things organizations can do to improve their chances of getting a strategic partner and not just another vendor. A true strategic service provider works with the client’s best interests in mind and strives to continually demonstrate their value to the business,” says Byrnes. “Implementing specific vendor selection criteria and setting expectations of measurable impact can help your organization find a strategic partner who can get you from Point A to B in a way that best fits into your business.”
