A cake decorated with a picture of a lighthouse and yellow and blue balloons reads "Be Aware or Mis Out"

The celebratory cake reads “Be Aware or Mis Out”. A play on words since DRS’s old system was named “ORMIS”. Robin shared with us that Marilyn Trogden from Alliance came up with this catchy phrase. Good job Marilyn!

Travel Log – 11/05/2007


We had the joy of attending the “Move to Production” celebration with our friends in Oklahoma City. They had over 75 staff members involved in the 33 month project — and the majority of them attended the celebration. We were very touched when the DRS Management Team presented Cecile and Lisa with a Certificate of Appreciation. The excellent collaboration between DRS and Alliance was evident throughout the project and it was fun to see them succeed so well.

In addition to the celebration, we attended a Steering Committee meeting, met with the Director, met several Super Users who began to prioritize their enhancements, talked techie, and launched their Contract Vendor project.
