By Jamie Grill-Goodman - 08/04/2017

At the 2017 RetailTechCon, Rosalee Hermens, Chief Information Officer & Senior Vice President, True Value, will present the session " A CIO’s Journey to IT Value."

In this session, one retailer proves ROI is still relevant in this case study about a large, multi-system personalization project that delivers high customer and business value.
