Sourcing Interest Group (SIG), the premier organization for sourcing, outsourcing and procurement executives, and Mayer Brown invite you to the Chicago Regional Roundtable meeting on June 9, 2014. SIG Buy-side Regional Roundtables are small gatherings that provide education and local networking in cities around North America for buy-side members and invited non-member executives. The robust agenda planned for the day includes hearing about successful best practices, sharing new industry standards, and networking with peer executives.

Join Mayer Brown partner Brad Peterson and counsel Paul Chandler as they present “Talking SMAC: Contracting for Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud.” Four new technologies - Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud (SMAC) are dramatically changing how we live, work and think. SMAC technology is also creating new issues and risks in contracting, even in contracting for traditional services. This session will discuss:

  • How the SMAC technologies are converging to create a "big data" revolution.
  • What is included in the new category of "SMAC Services."
  • How to use new contract terms and sourcing strategies to maximize value.
  • How to help your company avoid legal pitfalls.
