What is Contract Management?

Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) is the process of strategically managing and leveraging the entire lifespan of legally binding agreements between two or more parties within a business context. CLM tools are evolving rapidly. Not long ago, CLM software described a relatively simple system for document management and e-signature. Today, mature CLM solutions employ AI/ML data capture capabilities to turn the contract management process into an intelligent, real-time system of record. For more about the evolution of CLM software, read The Six Stages of CLM Maturity.

What are MGI Use Case Notes™?

The MGI Use Case Note™ describes the ideal customer profile (ICP) for a given solution. It helps prospective buyers understand a product’s “best fit” by identifying its customers:

  • size
  • business models
  • selling regions
  • tech ecosystems
  • sales channels
  • primary verticals
  • and more


The aim is to help interested parties quickly and confidently narrow the list of suppliers that could meet a particular use case. It is not intended to describe the entire range of possible use cases, nor is it an in-depth analysis of the supplier or solution. (For in-depth analysis of a solution, see MGI 360 Ratings™.) See a sample Use Case Note here.
