The US Air Force nears finish line on massive ERP project

The Air Force is entering the stretch run of implementing its massive, multibillion dollar financial management system, an enterprise resource planning initiative to consolidate all of its ERP systems into one organization.

The service’s Life Cycle Management Center has awarded a $77.8 million contract to Accenture Federal Services for the final phase of the Defense Enterprise Accounting Management System, according to a defense department release.

DEAMS is the Air Force’s effort to comply with the Defense Department’s Financial Improvement and Audit Readiness Plan. It was first implemented at Scott Air Force Base, Ill., in May 2010. Other early-deployment sites include the Defense Finance and Accounting Service, McConnell Air Force Base, Kan., Joint base Lewis-McChord, Wash. Servicewide deployment was to start gaining steam during the summer.

Initiated in 2003, DEAMS has, like just about any large, long-term IT project, seen its life cycles costs balloon—from a projected $1.1 billion to an estimated $2.2 billion—and its expected completion dates slip.

Tech is for girls... and always has been!

2017-09-18 10:00:00 +0100

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
