How Legal Teams in Railroads Can Gain Control Over the Contracting Process With Contract Intelligence Free white papers, case studies, magazines, and eBooks

Contracts sit at the core of the railroad ecosystem. Anything from maintenance of a track under the obligations of a lease agreement, to right-of-way contracts or settling of employee litigation requires that a contract be drafted, approved, signed, stored, and potentially accessed again at a future date. This makes effective contract management vital for railroads to meet minimum regulatory criteria, understand market value, and mitigate legal risks.

And legal teams are the custodians of the contract.

With a market valuation of nearly $ 80 billion (Freight Railroad Administration), the U.S freight rail industry has witnessed a significant transformation through the digitalization of its business processes. Despite the technological advancements made by railroads today, many companies still rely on Excel, SharePoint, and other tools (such as content management systems) to handle rail contracts.

This Industry Perspective takes a deep dive into how legal departments in both freight and passenger railroads can gain more control over the entire contract management process with cloud-based contract management solution. The outcomes of this include:

  • Visibility into contracting processes
  • Accelerate speed-to-contract
  • Rapid execution and authoring of contracts
  • Consistency in contract authoring
  • Adherence to industry regulators and contract terms

Contracting is an indispensable element of many railroad industry processes. Through digital contract management, it’s possible to gain more value from your contracts. Download your copy of the Industry Perspective today to learn more!

Top 5 Benefits of Cloud-Based Contract Management for Rail Procurement Teams Free white papers, case studies, magazines, and eBooks

Contracts sit at the heart of engagement between procurement teams and vendors. Yet they don’t only represent tangible agreements between 2 parties, they also present the potential for commercial gain as well as risk. There are payment and other contractual obligations to be met, bids, and proposals to track.

Recent changes in the supply chain due to the COVID-19 pandemic have created brought risk management into the limelight and could lead to a more diverse supply base, deeper and longer-term investment in the success of key suppliers in order to provide more reaction time to disruption. Safeguarding your business from revenue loss is never more critical than now, and that involves making decisions that are good for the business when it comes to managing contracts.

In this Industry Perspective, we take a hard look at the digital opportunities available to produce the sort of agile response to disruptions and mitigation of risks when it comes to procurement (including sourcing and leasing) and contracting. And we outline what we see are 5 leading benefits of cloud-based contract management for rail procurement teams:

  1. Mitigate sourcing risks and negotiate better deals
  2. Analyze procurement events for compliance and risk avoidance
  3. Acquire better deals
  4. Standardize vendor onboarding processes
  5. Accelerate procurement with self-service contracting

Solving Critical Engineering Challenges for Electric Vehicles Free white papers, case studies, magazines, and eBooks

Modern manufacturers are rewriting the rules of vehicle operation as they shift from manual, mechanical platforms to autonomous, electric ones.

A few of the innovations include:

  • High-performance propulsion systems driven by densely packed battery arrays.
  • Autonomous and safety systems powered by complex radar and vision systems.
  • Vehicle connectivity through machine-to-machine communication with powerful antennas and sensors.

These new systems present tremendous challenges for engineering.

Manufacturers are looking to resolve big problems with many variables, like boosting battery life and capacity, raising the power generated from electric motors, avoiding thermal runaway of battery fires after a crash, and testing complex radar and vision systems.

Simulation can help you gain an accurate view of which design variables affect performance. But enabling early, frequent, and pervasive analyses of physics to see which satisfies the requirements in these electrification scenarios is no simple task.

Most organizations use a disjointed and manual approach involving a cobbled-together combination of spreadsheets, documents, shared drives, computer-aided design (CAD) applications, and simulation tools.

You are left with a high probability of inaccuracies due to manual entry and propagation of revisions, unclear requirements, and no connectivity between tools. You also have no controlled process to share near real-time information with engineers in other disciplines, such as in electrical and electronics.

In the end, you end up with multiple rounds of revisions, project delays, and costly errors. You can lose hours, if not days or even weeks, of your time and productivity while missing the product release deadline.

Digital Design Simulation is a powerful tool to help you uncover solutions to all of these challenges. With this process you can make a significant difference in creating optimized designs. But instead of just telling you, let’s walk you through the process.

AI Governance: Concepts, Criteria, and Credibility Free white papers, case studies, magazines, and eBooks

This is a free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research. While digitally-mature companies are busily implementing their data governance initiatives, the notion of AI governance is just now gaining awareness in the enterprise. Many organizations are still consumed with getting AI into production and may see governance as merely a “nice-to-have.” But there are strategic, ethical, and competitive reasons to start thinking about it now.

In this 1-hour webinar, you will learn:

  • The roles of responsible AI and model management in AI governance
  • Where governance fits in the progression of AI maturity
  • How AI governance and model interpretability intersect
  • Why organizations must bring risk managers and data scientists together

Why Attend

AI governance helps assure that AI outputs are aligned with an organization’s true intentions and its desired impact on end-stakeholders, be they internal or external. Done right, governance will address not just a model’s statistical accuracy but also help vet the training data and determine testing criteria and have re-use potential. Collaboration is key as well: data scientists and business teams have to be involved in the governance process, and their expertise must be captured in the governed models.
