MITIGATION OF RISK
Many clients assume massive risks in order to achieve their financial targets. A properly structured contractual agreement can prevent much of the risk associated with software licensing. Mitigation of organization risk is a prime tenant of IT Investment Optimization and Contract Negotiation services.
If not careful, clients can unwittingly reduce the quality of their deployments due to forced financial pressures. Evaluating the architecture and technology required to solve the business challenge often results in significant solution changes, leading to significant cost savings and strategic improvements. This often results in significantly improved quality from the resulting solution.
Clients need governance models in place to ensure the compliance with their own contract terms, not to mention the supplier’s use rights and licensing grants. Strong compliance reduces risk and supplier audits.
A full 97% of the contracts we analyze for our clients do not meet all the requirements for sustainability. We then help clients rework their contractual agreements so they become actual governing instruments to ensure service levels, strategic supplier performance, and economic viability.
