Salient CRGT Achieves CMMI Maturity Level 3 Appraisal
Achievement Highlights Continuous Commitment to Quality, Process Improvement, and Effective Delivery of System and Software Engineering Services
FAIRFAX, Va/PRNewswire/ -- Salient CRGT, Inc., a leading provider of Agile software development, data analytics, mobility, cyber security, and infrastructure solutions, today announced that it has been formally appraised at Maturity Level 3 of the CMMI Institute's Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) for Development.
CMMI is a performance improvement framework that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes that ultimately improve their performance. The focus at the organizational level drives consistency and efficiencies which benefit the customer by increasing quality and reducing rework and risk.
An appraisal at Maturity Level 3 indicates the organization is performing at the "Defined" level. At this level, processes are well characterized and understood, and are described in standards, procedures, tools, and methods. The organization's set of standard processes is robust and sustainable which allows continues improvement so the organization can align with customer needs.
"We value this continued recognition by the CMMI Institute. At Salient CRGT we have always focused on continuous improvement and innovation," said Brad Antle, CEO of Salient CRGT. "By sharing knowledge gained at the project level across the company, we have been able to achieve decreased costs, higher productivity, and superior quality. Following the tenets of CMMI, we have improved service to our customers as well as increased efficiency for ourselves."
This formal CMMI appraisal was the first one completed since Salient Federal and CRGT merged late last year. The integration of the two companies was completed in less than six months, allowing the Quality team to start the appraisal process in March. Since the early 2000s, significant portions of the legacy software development operations within Salient CRGT have demonstrated continued process maturity performance achieving CMMI-Development Maturity Level 3 numerous times.
CMMI heritage is the result of more than 28 years of ongoing work at Carnegie Mellon University by members of industry, government, and the Software Engineering Institute. The CMMI Institute is working to build upon CMMI's success, advance the state of the practice, accelerate the development and adoption of best practices, and provide solutions to the emerging needs of businesses around the world.
