Why Read This Report

To assess the state of the contract life-cycle management market and see how the vendors stack up against each other, Forrester evaluated the strengths and weaknesses of 10 leading contract life-cycle management vendors across 98 criteria. The result: the specialist vendors like diCarta, I-many, and Upside Software that helped create the category are still the Leaders in terms of features and functions, but they have been joined by Ariba. Nextance continues to have a strong current offering, but faces competition from new entrants like Hummingbird, Procuri, Oracle, and Selectica, who are catching up and have strong competitive positions. Included in this report is an interactive vendor comparison tool that provides detailed product evaluations and customizable rankings.
