Enterprise Contract Management Solution for Agile Governance - Selectica

  1. 1. Agile Contract Governance: The major challenges & how to address them Download whitepaper
  2. 2. © 2014 Selectica, Inc. | www.selectica.com Today, companies are confronted with an ever-increasing amount of unstructured data that is a result of company acquisition, document management solutions, digital archiving and authoring using desktop applications. The volume of new data is set to increase by more than 40% each year, with around 90% of that new data being unstructured. One of the biggest challenges is to effectively and efficiently expose the value of the information within the data and determine its relevance. Many companies are looking to information governance, which includes the processes, roles, standards and metrics that ensure the most effectual use of information and enable organizations to achieve their goals: information management, compliance, retention, disaster recovery and business continuity, as well as cost efficiency. Businesses need to establish which data is of high value and implement a plan to manage and leverage the information extracted. A key data set from which to acknowledge, gain visibility and value contracts, because they affect many different areas: General Counsel/ Legal, Procurement/Finance, Sales, Customer Service and IT. In the area of General Counsel/Legal there is an increasing amount of litigation related to contracts.The number of lawsuits with more than $20 million at issue is on the rise, with a significant increase in the Technology/Communications sector. Costs related to litigation have risen over the last three years, with 54% of companies spending one million dollars or more. The first phase for adopting information governance is to discover and gain visibility of contractual assets. Next, is to analyze and extract key data content to leverage the contract corpus. This procedure typically involves an external third party to manually review the documents and extract the agreed information for future uploading into another application. It is a lengthy and expensive process and does not facilitate agile contract governance. Selectica Contract Discovery and Contract Analytics- Executive Summary
