What pressures are facing technology service providers and professional services executives now and in the future? During a free webinar on August 8, Planview® and the Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA) will cite the latest research and present real-world case studies that show how professional services operations are using technology to advance their businesses and stay ahead of megatrends.
What: Webinar on the Four Pressures Transforming Professional Services in 2013 and Beyond
Why and Who: TSIA and Planview have jointly authored the white paper, The State of Professional Services: 2013, which cites solutions to four pressures that professional services groups in technology organizations are facing, based on recent research:
1. Pressure to drive margin
2. Pressure to optimize
3. Pressure to innovate
4. Pressure to support and enable new product trends
During the webinar, John Ragsdale, vice president of technology and social research for TSIA, and Steve Alexander, senior vice president of Planview Consulting, will elaborate on the research described in the white paper and discuss what industry factors have led these specific pressures to become business priorities. In addition, they will share results from a Planview case study to illustrate how tackling each challenge can be achieved by addressing and investing in resource utilization software solutions.
When: Thursday, August 8, at 1:00 p.m. CDT (30 minutes)
