The primary benefits of SIG are to help define solutions faster, reduce the cost of implementation and reduce the risk of failure. SIG membership helps you avoid "reinventing the wheel" in sourcing strategy development, solution construction and implementation, and relationship management. SIG membership gives your organization a head start and an opportunity to stay in front of an evolving industry. Learn more about the benefits of joining SIG below.
