SILVER SPRING, Md., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- DataSource, Inc., a $18
million company that provides custom software development, systems
integration, business process re-engineering, and network services to the
commercial and government marketplace announces that it is developing an
enterprise-wide system for the Maryland Insurance Administration. The system
will handle the receipt and approval of applications to sell insurance; the
examination of insurance companies for compliance with Maryland law; the
investigation of insurance agent licensing issues; and the investigation of
acts of insurance fraud in the state. The system will improve and enhance the
internal processes of MIA by eliminating such repetitive tasks as the multiple
entry of data by separate units within the administration. The system will
allow MIA to move into the next millennium as a self-funded organization.
The system is being developed using an object-oriented approach to
analysis, design, and programming. It is an N-Tier, thin client system
utilizing a database layer, transaction server, and a servlet engine. The
thin client is composed of a series of JAVA applets displayed through a
Netscape web browser. Hardware and software used include Windows NT 4.0, Dell
Poweredge 45300 servers, JDK 1.1, Netscape 54.51, JRUN Pro, Jaguar CTS 3.0,
and Sybase Adaptive Server 11.9.
DataSource Inc. has gone from 1 to more than 100 employees in just over
four years. "We have grown at a tremendously fast rate because we have shown
commitment -- to our employees, to our customers, and to the company as a
whole -- we have been unwavering in our desire to build something of value,"
said Pamela W. Hopkins, President and Chief Executive Officer for DataSource,
DataSource, Inc. expects to expand by pursuing large contracts, product
development, and e-commerce. The three to five year vision is to become a
company whose core business comprises complementary products and services.
Plans are for DataSource, Inc. to continue to grow at a rapid pace. The
culture will remain focused on commitment, and the company hopes to be at
$100M in revenue within 5-7 years.

operation with $230,000 in revenue to more than 100 people, sizable office
space, a long list of happy clients and projected revenues of $18 million --
