The defining outsourcing moments of 2011


Well, another year goes by and HfS yet again escapes any legal action, terrorist attacks at our office, or disappearing bodies for being thoroughly unafraid to call the industry on its issues. So let’s reflect some of the defining moments of 2011


Announcing the HfS 50 Sourcing Blueprint Sessions


This is going to be a defining two-day working session for power-brokers of the outsourcing industry, where leading buyers of both ITO and BPO services will confront today’s critical issues impacting outsourcing, to establish a Blueprint for the industry in 2015. And this time, we will have a vendor/buyer face-off session where leaders from six of the major service providers will join the debate.


Congratulations to Tony “Governator” Filippone, HfS’ new Head of Research

Tony Filippone

Our core mantra at HfS has always been to tackle the issues and complexities of global sourcing through the eyes of the buyer. One analyst who has spent nine years of his life doing just that, leading BPO governance for the $62 Billion healthcare payor, WellPoint, is our Governator himself, Tony Filippone. No single person in 2011 has written to – or talked with – more buyers about their governance challenges, and we are delighted to reveal to the world today his elevation to Executive Vice President of HfS’ research team.

A little summery “thank you” to all of you

Tune in, crank up the volume, or pop in your headphones in if you’re in the office. A few summer memories from the HfS team, as we go sit on a beach for a couple of weeks… we really do appreciate all your support. You’ve been part of one heck of a journey (so far)…
