Why Read This Report

Contract life-cycle management (CLM) products are more than merely document repositories; they streamline the authoring process, aid compliance tracking, and reduce overall contract administration costs. Forrester predicts the CLM market will grow at 17% in 2011, driven by strong demand from sourcing professionals and legal departments. This report will summarize Forrester's 113-criteria evaluation of contract life-cycle management vendors, in which Upside Software led the pack because of advanced functionality across the board and extremely positive reference results, just ahead of ePurchasing suites Ariba and Emptoris, enterprise resource planning (ERP) giants Oracle E-Business Suite and SAP, and sell-side CLM specialist Selectica.
