A Two-Day Seminar Designed to Explain What IT Contracts are, How and Why they Work and How to Put Them in Place

All those involved in IT transactions need to understand the trends and industry ‘norms’. A tough commercial environment means you need to guarantee you are getting the best terms available and the best deal for your company or clients.

This course has been specifically designed to engage both IT supplier and users of IT to develop their understanding of the structure and content of IT contracts:

  • What they are
  • How and why they work
  • What should be included
  • How to put them in place
  • How to overcome the key challenges

*Please note: events may be cancelled due to commercial or organisational reasons. In this case Research and Markets will refund all registration fees which have already been paid. Research and Markets will not refund any charges arising from the participant having to cancel or re-book transportation or accommodation which he or she has arranged.
