How can you use Data Governance to add value to the organization? Information Governance and Contract Intelligence offer multiple ways to not only reduce risk, but gain efficiencies. IG programs have largely gone from catch-all, ‘boil the ocean’ pursuits to a series of concrete, practical actions an organization can take to reduce data volumes, become more efficient and protect data ‘crown jewels’. Contracts, when organized and mined effectively, can reduce risk and actually create value for the organization. Attend this session to learn how to apply IG techniques and utilize your contract universe to gain efficiencies and reduce risk, including:

  • Understanding the principles that shape legal value and how to put them in place
  • Learning the elements of effective information and data governance – and how they interplay with contracts in the corporate data universe
  • How to use people, process and judiciously applied technology to find insight and value in your contracts
