The Highlights

In this webinar, Patrick Reymann, Research Director – Procurement and Enterprise Applications at IDC, discussed the top trends in the buy-side CLM. Let’s check out a few below, but watch the full webinar above for more actionable insights. 

Trend 1: Automation and AI Integration

Automation and AI have become pivotal in transforming CLM processes, from contract creation and metadata searches to document control and obligations management. These technologies enhance efficiency, enable advanced analytics, and inform better sourcing decisions. They’re no longer option tools for procurement teams.

Trend 2: Predictive Analytics for Intelligent Decision Support

The evolution towards predictive analytics in CLM tools supports intelligent decision-making by providing insights into cost implications and other predictive metrics. This marks a shift from static, backward-looking platforms to dynamic, forward-looking solutions that offer actionable intelligence.

Trend 3: Customizable, Low-code or No-code Workflows

There’s a significant focus on developing customizable workflows within CLM systems that cater to specific business needs without requiring extensive coding. This trend is driven by the desire to increase operational efficiency and stakeholder engagement across various departments beyond legal and procurement.

Trend 4: Emphasis on Scalable Solutions and Change Management

Enterprises are looking for scalable CLM solutions that can adapt and grow with an organization’s evolving needs. Effective change management practices are also essential for successful implementation, ensuring that the transition to new CLM systems is smooth and the organization realizes the intended benefits.

Trendy or Here to Stay?

These trends reflect the dynamic nature of the buy-side CLM market, emphasizing the need for flexibility, advanced analytics, and user-centric solutions to adapt to global disruptions and advance digital procurement strategies.

They’re also likely here to stay, especially as generative AI takes the stage. That means choosing a CLM solution that meets current needs, is scalable, and positions organizations for future success.

When it comes to contract management, business teams have often historically “set it and forget it” — but a contract can be a vital source of business insight when managed well.
