The new book from ISG Research showcases winning enterprise/provider partnerships on projects ranging from the use of blockchain to transform the international payments experience for customers of a Spanish multinational commercial bank; a digital automation solution that enriches self-service capabilities for fans on a sports broadcaster’s NCAA Bracket Challenge and its Fantasy Football and Fantasy Baseball offerings, and an AI-powered virtual assistant that analyzes and categorizes email requests for one of the world’s largest brewers.

An expert ISG digital review committee selected the top 25 projects for the book from submissions received from technology and service providers worldwide. The independent panel evaluated each submission by interviewing the enterprise customer and its service and technology providers, assessing the impact of each transformation on the customer's business and indexing various other evaluation criteria.
