Benefits of attending:

Most companies outsource, whether it's product development to CMOs, IT services or HR, to conserve resources and focus on core competencies. Very often, the cost of the outsourcing process is underestimated if calculated at all. Most companies do not realize that there are cost-effective solutions that are accessible to them regardless of size- SAP and Oracle are no longer the only options.
