STAMFORD, Conn., March 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Services Group (ISG) (NASDAQ: III), a leading technology insights, market intelligence and advisory services company, today announced that two of its top experts have joined the Research Guidance Council of the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP), the standard-setting body and advocate for the outsourcing profession globally.

Debora Card, an ISG Partner who leads the firm's Research and Subscription Services, will chair the 11-member committee, which also includes representatives of leading clients, service providers and academic thought leaders involved in global outsourcing. Paul Reynolds, Chief Research Officer, ISG Momentum, has also joined the committee.

The goal of the IAOP Research Guidance Council is to enhance members' practical understanding of the management science of outsourcing.

Card was instrumental in developing AccessISG™, a service that offers subscribers on-demand access to ISG data, experience and insight, drawing from sources that include the TPI Index™, Contract KnowledgeBase™, Compass Benchmarking and Sourcing Prevalence Database™.

Reynolds leads the Momentum business unit, a subscription-based research service that enables service providers to better target, win and retain business.
