Greetings from IACCM Americas in Toronto! Our first full day at IACCM Toronto, and ULTRIA Contract Lifecycle Management interest continues unabated with emphasis on artificial intelligence enabled self-service portals and post-award compliance management. Companies from manufacturing to management consulting are exploring increased value creation through full life-cycle management. See you at the reception!


“The whiskey is strong, but the meat is rotten”… This morning’s session on Artificial Intelligence at IACCM America’s – Toronto reminded us all of how far AI has come – from the days of room-sized computers translating Russian (and poorly by some measure) to today’s near perfect real-time translation on smart phones. The future of AI to improve and streamline the contracting process is about complementing human knowledge and judgement not replacing it. And for those of you scratching your head – the quote is the circa 1962 machine translation from English to Russian and back to English of “The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak”. Cheers!


Great Take-aways from the 2017 IACCM Americas event in Toronto – Fantastic inspirations from the winning Future Leaders team – Future Technology of Contracting to encompass Artificial Intelligence, Simple UI / UX, Intuitive process and in-depth analytics. The future (and @Zycus ) is already here!
