This Thursday, March 30, join David Tollen’s LinkedIn Live conversation about the 4 misunderstood types of tech deals: on-premise software, IT professional services, SaaS and other cloud services, and non-tech offerings delivered through IT. It aims to clear away confusion and flag issues unique to each type of deal.
This free session is a great lead-up to Tech Contracts Academy trainings this spring – a webinar on indemnities next week on April 4th and our spring Master Class series which starts April 18th.
LinkedIn Live – March 30, 10 -10:30 AM PT. (Unavailable then? Check LinkedIn for access to recording afterward).
Free Live Session: The Misunderstood 4 Types of Tech Deals – & the Terms they Need.
Contract-drafters regularly misunderstand IT products and services, leading to terrible contracts.
Tech contracts involve (1) on-premise software, (2) IT professional services, (3) SaaS and other cloud services, and/or (4) non-tech offerings delivered through IT. Common misunderstandings grow out of categories 3 and 4 … and spread. Even experienced staff mistake SaaS and other cloud services for on-premise software or professional services. Or they mistake category 4 (e.g., DaaS, LinkedIn, eBay) for the other three.
That leads to contracts riddled with errors. We will discuss issues and terms unique to each type of deal, and help you navigate the confusion.
Our speaker is David W. Tollen, author of The Tech Contracts Handbook, expert witness, U.C. Berkeley Law lecturer, and founder of Tech Contracts Academy.
