SILVER SPRING, Md., May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- DataSource, Inc., a $15 million
company that provides information systems engineering, business process
reengineering, and network design to the commercial and government
marketplace, announces that it is developing and implementing a revised
Personnel Information Management System (PIMS) for the State of Maryland
Public Defender's Service (PDS). PIMS maintains personnel and leave
information for 1,000 employees and contract staff working at PDS. The system
will also perform statistical analysis and provide management information in
charts, graphs, and reports.
The system is being implemented on the PDS network, which is migrating
from Novell to Windows NT using Visual Basic and MS-Access. DataSource will
develop a Design Document itemizing the database design, client presentation,
navigation security, screen layouts and report layouts. DataSource will also
develop and execute a formal test plan, populate the new system with cleansed
historical data, implement the system, and provide user training and support.
"The new system will replace an older database management system and allow
for future growth and enhancements," said Pamela W. Hopkins, President and
Chief Executive Officer for DataSource, Inc. PIMS is the first of seven
systems DataSource plans to develop for PDS.
DataSource is providing information services to several other agencies
within the State of Maryland as well as PDS, including the Department of
Transportation, State Archives, Office of Treasurer, and others.
Founded in 1994 by Pamela Hopkins, DataSource has gone from a solo
operation with $230,000.00 in revenues to more than 80 employees, a long list
of happy clients, and projected revenues of $15 million -- all in under five
years. DataSource is headquartered in Silver Spring, Maryland.
