2012 National Democratic Convention Program Support

Case Studies Project Services
Virtira Sales Operations

We provided virtual and onsite program support for a client who had won a major contract supporting the 2012 National Democratic Convention.

Client Challenge

The client won a significant bid to provide network services and had to install, test, and perform network design for all venues and headquarters for the DNC in Charlotte, North Carolina in 2012.

  • Tight timelines and budgets.
  • Last minute venue change due to weather.
  • Working with Microsoft, Cisco, Google, AT&T to ensure successful roll-out.

How We Solved It

Virtira provided remote and on-site project management, collaborating with the Democratic National Convention and client teams.

  • Set up and managed tracking off all Cisco equipment, install and testing in venues.
  • Developed project plans and status reports.
  • Organized weekly meetings for the core team.
  • Tracked team action items.
  • Provided onsite project support during the event.

Business Impact

Extreme weather caused a last-minute venue change. Because of our detailed project logs and stakeholder action tracking, we were able to assist in moving the event with very little notice.

We ran a lessons learned workshop, which resulted in revised consolidated project documentation with enhanced disaster recovery for the next cycle.
