-- New e-Book Offers Insights on Contract Management and Streamlined Contract Migration

SAN FRANCISCO, April 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Seal Software, the leading provider of Contract Discovery and Analytics solutions, today announced the release of a new e-book titled, "Best Practices in Contract Migration: Why You Should and How to Do It." The e-book offers an in-depth look at the process and benefits for implementing a comprehensive contract discovery and review initiative. Covering a range of topics surrounding contract creation, negotiation, execution, and analysis, the e-book offers invaluable insight for businesses to gain greater visibility and control of their contract portfolios and to successfully migrate contract data to a Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) system.

"While contracts form the backbone of business, a majority of organizations hold thousands of contracts without knowing the status and scope of their complete portfolio," said Kevin Gidney, co-founder and chief technical officer, Seal Software. "Organizations that employ a 'file it and forget' mentality lose the ability to leverage contractual data to its fullest potential and expose their business to unnecessary risk. The new e-book provides CEOs, CFOs and general counsels looking to improve their contract management processes with a helpful resource for implementing a successful contract discovery and review process and ultimately improving the overall health of an organization."

The e-book encompasses a wide range of topics impacting contract management practices and contractual document data migration including common pitfalls with CLM implementations, best practices for finding contracts and extracting required metadata, creating rules and policies, and migrating contractual data to a CLM system for improved accuracy. Using this e-book as a guide, organizations will have a better understanding of overall cost reduction and revenue opportunities hidden within their contracts.

Poor contract management costs companies an average of nine percent of revenues each year.[1] With the potential to recoup even one percent in previously 'lost' revenue through greater visibility of a contract portfolio, contracts can be a powerful asset to be managed and leveraged. "Best Practices in Contract Migration: Why You Should and How to Do It" helps legal teams and organizations looking to gain more control over their contractual data across business units and organizational processes:

    "Whether your organization plans to implement a Contract Lifecycle Management system, is in the midst of an acquisition, or is subject to an audit of existing contractual commitments - a cost-effective solution to contract review and data abstraction is of paramount importance. Historically this process has been an entirely manual one. That is, until today. Seal's new e-book provides best practices guidance on how to leverage auto-extraction and data analytics technology to significantly lower the cost and speed up the process of mass contract review and data abstraction," Mark Ross, senior vice president, Legal Process Outsourcing, Integreon.

Seal's new e-book offers best practices in contract migration and helpful insight into streamlining the process of placing contractual data into a CLM system of record."
  • Technology and Information Services: Mainspring Consulting Group helps organizations maximize their Return on Contracts™ - increasing profits and shareholder value for clients by targeting and continuously improving contracts and the contracting function through implementation, management and technology services.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and valu...
This talk centers around how to automate best practices in a multi-/hybrid-cloud world based on our work with customers like GE, Discovery Communications and Fannie Mae. Today’s enterprises are reaping the benefits of cloud computing, but also discovering many risks and challenges. In the age of DevOps and the decentralization of IT, it’s easy to over-provision resources, forget that instances are running, or unintentionally expose vulnerabilities.
Everywhere we turn in our industry we can find strong opinions about the direction, type and nature of cloud’s impact on computing and business. Another word that is used in every context in our industry is “hybrid.” In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Alvaro Gonzalez, Director of Technical, Partner and Field Marketing at Peak 10, will use a combination of a few conceptual props and some research recently commissioned by Peak 10 to offer a real-world consideration of how the various categories of...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.

In his keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Jeffrey Scheaffer, GM and SVP, Continuous Delivery Busine...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts.

Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
