In 2016, the Atlanta Tribune featured Demetrica Berry, founder and CEO of Berry Technology Solutions and a graduate of Accenture’s DSDP, in a special issue saluting minority business owners. Berry launched her business, an Atlanta, Georgia-based professional services company in the United States dedicated to designing, building, training and supporting ERP/ SAP programs for public-sector and commercial clients, in 2005. Since then, she has achieved tremendous success, growing the company to approximately 40 full-time employees and reaching annual sales of more than US$34 million. Recently, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) awarded the company a US$14.3 million contract to support its Vaccine Tracking System. The program, which is part of the CDC’s Vaccine Management Business Improvement Project, aims to improve and integrate the entire publicly funded vaccine supply chain, leading to better efficiency, transparency and accountability. When accepting this recognition from the Atlanta Tribune, Berry thanked her mentors from DSDP, noting that their support was instrumental in helping her win the CDC business.
