Software and data are ubiquitous, with every organization now dependent on ever more complex digital infrastructure. Now AI is being infused into every product and service, increasing that complexity in ways that few truly understand, and vendors are fighting to win in ever more competitive markets. The implications for contract disputes and litigation are huge.
