Emergence of AI and Cloud to Boost Demand
CLM software type can be bifurcated into cloud-based and on-premises.
Cloud-based software segmented is expected to increase its demand over the projected period due to high adoption in small companies due to its flexibility and cost-effectiveness. A cloud-based CLM solution provides an easy-to-use interface and web-enabled editor which lets companies modify templates as per their requirements. The software also assists organizations in presenting a professional image to clients. The cloud-based solution also allows dynamic workflow approvals. For example, some agreements contain non-standard clause. These will be automatically directed to legal or finance austerities for further amendments. The development of software using artificial intelligence (AI) can boost the segment growth in the years ahead.
For instance, Apttus launched the contract management solution equipped with AI in 2017. This solution can be beneficial for company’s legal department. It can offer several benefits such as the automation of third-party paper, contract cycle time reduction, and contract risk management.
