ISG Launches Research on Service Management, Financial Outsourcing, Microsoft and Salesforce Ecosystems
ISG Provider Lens reports will give enterprise clients valuable information when choosing service providers
Information Services Group, a leading global technology research and advisory firm, has launched four research studies examining the service integration and management market, the financial and accounting outsourcing market, the Microsoft ecosystem market and the Salesforce ecosystem partner market.
The study results will be published in four comprehensive ISG Provider Lens™ reports in 2020. The new reports help enterprise clients make informed choices about the services providers they use, said Jan Erik Aase, director and global leader, ISG Provider Lens Research.
“Our ISG Provider Lens reports serve as a roadmap for enterprise clients looking for new technology partners or considering changes in their vendor relationships,” he said. “These reports, and the others we have planned for 2020, provide a comprehensive assessment of vendors in each of the 19 technology service areas we will examine in the coming year.”
SIAM/ITSM: The 2020 ISG Provider Lens™ SIAM/ITSM Report, covering the U.S. and Germany markets, is scheduled to be released in April. It will cover service integration and management, a collection of frameworks and best practices encompassing the people, processes and tools required to managed end-to-end services through their entire lifecycles.
ISG has distributed surveys to more than 240 technology and service providers in the SIAM/ITSM space. Working in collaboration with ISG’s global advisors, the research team will produce six quadrants representing the services and products the typical enterprise client is buying in the SIAM space, based on ISG’s experience working with its clients.
The six quadrants that will be covered are: System Integrators for ServiceNow Products, Business Value Service Management, Service Design & Transition, Sourcing Information Management, Service Operation & Delivery, and System Integrators for BMC Software Products.
