1. GTA’s Journey to Contract Automation

When: Tuesday, 18th February, 4:00 pm


    • Peter Blake, Director of Contracts and Compliance, Georgia Technology Authority (GTA)
    • Claude Marais, Co-founder and President, SirionLabs

Session Outline:

Georgia Technology Authority (GTA) is responsible for managing Georgia state’s central IT infrastructure (data centers, network, security, telecom, etc.) supporting 100,000+ users spread across 1200+ state agencies. As GTA’s operations scaled, it became evident that our legacy, manual contract management processes just couldn’t scale up to keep pace. While putting together our contract automation strategy, management of contracts after signature – especially obligation management – emerged as the most critical challenge for us.

With this clarity, we deployed a specialized contract lifecycle management technology combining contract repository with advanced performance management capabilities to enable automated validation of supplier performance against contractual obligations. Join us for this session to learn about GTA’s contract automation journey and the technology behind it.


2. [AHEAD Talk] The CLM Paradox: Why 2020 still feels like the 80s

WhenMonday, 17th Feb, 2:20 pm

Speaker: Claude Marais, Co-founder and President, SirionLabs

Session Outline:

In the early 1980s, companies had no internet, no laptops, and no cell phones. Another area where they struggled due to lack of technology was managing enterprise contracts which had to be done manually in a tedious and ineffective manner.

We are now in 2020 with cutting-edge web and cloud technologies, mobile devices and modern contract management systems. Why do we have enterprises – even the Fortune 500s – still struggling to address the same basic contract and supplier management needs – locating all of their contracts, understanding what’s in those contracts, tracking obligations, and just making sure that the performance and invoices are aligned with the contracts? Join Claude Marais as he explains the mistakes that organizations continue to make in their contract management strategy and how they can use advanced CLM technology to create a truly modern enterprise.
