Improve Agility With Forrester's Software And SaaS Contract Review Checklist

Use This Report And Associated Tool To Identify And Fix Common Problems In Cloud And On-Premises Software Agreements

May 26, 2017


Why Read This Report

Software providers' contracts fail to keep pace with continual, rapid technology changes such as cloud and mobile. Forrester hears dozens of complaints each year about software contract disputes that clients could have avoided, had they better negotiated the original contract. We've assembled our insight to create a checklist that sourcing and vendor management (SVM) pros can use to identify dangerous loopholes and gray areas in their software license and subscription agreements. They can also use the accompanying spreadsheet to plan and track their negotiation. This report and the associated checklist represent a significant update of the original versions that we published on November 14, 2013 and updated in June 2015.
