Today is the 10th annual Ada Lovelace Day. It is a day to take time to recognize the accomplishments of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The goal is to increase the visibility of women in STEM in order to create role models for future generations of STEM professionals.
Here at TeraThink, we have no shortage of role models. We wanted to shine the spotlight some of them. I asked them to share how they got started in the technology field and any inspirations they had.
The Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) awarded The Joint Staff (TJS) Enterprise Business Accountability System (EBAS) Support contract for $29 million to TeraThink Corporation. TeraThink competed against multiple, large system integrators, including the 15 year incumbent, to win this contract. EBAS is a Momentum-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system that serves as TJS primary budgeting and financial system. Thomas Byers, TeraThink’s Senior Vice President for Defense and National Security Business Unit, states, “We are excited for the opportunity to support The Joint Staff’s critical mission by helping to improve financial visibility and compliance, streamline business operations, and modernize their business systems infrastructure.”
