Embracing Cary’s digital transformation, Carolyn Roman, Wilson Farrell and Danielle Mahoney went to New York City to earn a professional certification in Box, one software piece of our updated technology backbone. They were joined by 18 other participants in an interactive curriculum that brought together innovators from multiple industries and used real case studies to develop solutions to common business challenges and empower users as they swap legacy tools for a cloud content platform. The two-day event culminated with a 60-question test on best practices, business process evaluation and change management. Out of 500 Box Certified Professionals, three are now in Cary!
