The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) awarded TeraThink $10M for Organizational Change Management and Business Process Reengineering. Awarded as part of the USDA Shared Services Lines of Business Solutions (SSLOBS) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA), our expansive financial management and modernization experience is directly relevant to USDA objectives. This experience was key to our winning these task orders.
TeraThink attended SAP TechEd 2017 in sunny Las Vegas. SAP transported us from present day Vegas to the final frontier of the digital revolution. The conference kicked off with a keynote from Björn Goerke, SAP’s Chief Technology Officer. As a bonus, he came dressed as the legendary Captain Kirk on the mythical starship Enterprise! Goerke walked us through SAP’s vision of the digital transformation facing many present day organizations in their attempt to go digital (boldly) and blur the lines between their physical and virtual world.
SAP indulged the crowd with some space age demos of their new Leonardo platform to use drones, machine learning, spatial analytics, and computer vision to help Dole to automate farming of hundreds of acres of palm trees. Who doesn’t love drones and artificial intelligence? And what better way to indulge a room full of developers than to dress up as Captain Kirk, wear Vulcan ears, and present from the bridge of the Enterprise?
TeraThink has been awarded a prime position on the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Shared Services Line of Business (SSLoBS) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA). An estimated $500 million multi-award BPA, this win is a testament to our team’s 20+ years of continuous delivery and excellence supporting USDA’s mission.
The objective of the SSLoBS BPA is to drive the OCFO’s (Office of the Chief Financial Officer) mission, while providing USDA’s shared service offerings to customers government-wide. The scope of this BPA includes services for Financial Management, Human Resources, Information Technology Services Division, External Systems Development, and Personnel & Pay. These service offerings are designed to eliminate time-consuming, transactional functions and allow agencies to focus on their core mission.
TeraThink is the prime integrator for Enterprise Funds Distribution (EFD), which is designed to increase visibility, auditability, and efficiency in the management of distributed funds and Congressional Actions for all Department of Defense (DoD) appropriations. EFD will be the authoritative source of Budget Line Items (BLI) for the entire life-cycle of all DOD programs.
In May 2017, the TeraThink Team concluded a year-long contract with a successful Go-Live delivered on time and within budget. The Go-Live enabled funds distribution capability for Defense organizations receiving and distributing Defense-wide funding. This effort also included migrating a user organization to EFD, developing outbound interface file formats, and providing custom reports which contain critical budget data. As a result of the successful implementation, our DLA client gave TeraThink an “exceptional” CPARs rating in 4 out of 5 evaluation areas.
IT departments are continually being asked to do more with less. They’re also working to meet the increasing demands of their customers. Clients who are accustomed to Amazon-like IT interactions outside of the workplace.
The IT Service Management arena is no exception. In an effort to continue to improve our ability to meet the needs of our clients, TeraThink is now a ServiceNow partner. Our partnership with ServiceNow strengthens our ability to bring best-in-class solutions to our clients looking to overcome these challenges.
To further our partnership, last week I attended Knowledge17, ServiceNow’s annual conference in Orlando, FL. Over 15,000 ServiceNow customers, partners, and associates gathered together to exchange ideas, experiences, and advice. The mixture of keynotes, labs, customer success stories, and demos ensured a little something for everyone.
