    In this workshop, paradigms will be discussed that leverage the “business value–deal process–negotiation–contract” connection; encourage sourcing, technology, and business alignment; and improve deal ROI, while minimizing and managing the risks that matter most. This program will be presented against the backdrop of complex ITO and BPO, digitization, automation, and the move to new delivery models, such as DevOps and hybrid cloud.
