Information Enablement (IE) for Contracting and Commerce

In a recent survey, over 70% of commercial teams said that they are facing demands to raise efficiency and deliver greater value. Less than 15% felt that they have the necessary capabilities in place to meet business demands.
What makes that 15% different ... and what should you be doing to secure your future? Whether you are in Legal, Procurement or Contract Management, a key element is to become 'information-enabled'.

You can discover what that means - and where you currently stand - by participating in IACCM's latest survey, which is being undertaken in collaboration with SAP and NetApp. Gain invaluable insights into ways that leading commercial groups are raising their performance and status by grasping the opportunities that our digital world is creating.
