Bleum Appraised at CMMI Level 5 for Fourth Time

SHANGHAI/PRNewswire/ -- Bleum Inc., a leading global software development and outsourcing firm, has successfully appraised at Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Maturity Level 5 for the fourth consecutive time. This maintains its record as one of the leading CMMI software companies in China.

Bleum was one of the first companies in China to achieve CMM Maturity Level 5, in 2005, and this fourth appraisal places it among an elite number of companies that have achieved a company-wide CMMI Maturity Level 5 on multiple occasions.

"Looking at Bleum's processes in the recent Level 5 appraisal, much has changed, yet the core capabilities to perform and help people do good work stayed the same," said Malcolm Patrick, lead appraiser from Process Improvement Asia (Shanghai) Co. Ltd. "As they've adopted new lifecycles, tools and markets, they've evolved, updated, and remained able to meet their goals. Attention to measurable quality really is their secret."

The rigorous appraisal process was navigated by Bleum's dedicated software quality assurance team.

"This is the fourth time we've achieved CMMI Level 5, but this is not the end of our process improvements. I think of it as another new start," said Bleum software quality assurance manager Beth Li. "We are going to continuously improve our processes and quality so that we can continue to adapt to the ever-changing world of IT."

"I am proud that Bleum has achieved CMMI Level 5 for the fourth consecutive time," said Bleum CEO and founder, Eric Rongley. "It is a testament to the dedication to process and quality that this team is able to achieve such high standards consistently for 10 years. CMMI has helped us prioritize and direct our process improvement initiatives so that we may best allocate our energy and resources to the thing that matters most to our customers: uncompromising quality."
