In case you missed it, Ariba is in the process of developing a brand new contract management product natively on the Salesforce Force.com platform. The product will be optimized for sales contracting making it an excellent option for sales organizations already leveraging salesforce.com for sales automation. (It should be noted: Ariba's core Contract Management solutions integrate with salesforce.com as well.)
Click the link for a brief introductory demo of Ariba Contracts for Force.com. As we get closer to release - currently targeted for this summer - we will be leveraging Ariba Exchange to keep you aware of developments and more product demos so stay tuned.
In the interim, I encourage you to share your thoughts and ideas on Exchange or reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
