    How do you get from an outdated, legacy enterprise to one that completely tranforms your business in just 10 months? Darrell Riekena, CIO/COO for National DCP, will share how the company's Project Freshstart, a unique deployment of cloud technology that went live in an unprecedented 10 month timeframe, allows the seamless integration of operations to source product through a cloud solution for direct material, making it available for customers through an open-source portal platform that transacts orders, inventory, and financials through a solution managed on a private cloud. Riekena will share how NDCP engages with customers using a co-tenant, cloud-for-customer call center solution. Also:

    • Ways the company has widened its strategic advantage against the competition by overhauling outdated IT delivery practices
    • How they increased customer service, drove supply chain efficiencies, and lowered sustainable costs
