Salient Federal Solutions Achieves CMMI Maturity Level 3 Appraisal
FAIRFAX, Va., Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Salient Federal Solutions, Inc. (Salient), a leading provider of information technology, training, engineering, and intelligence analytic services to agencies in the intelligence, defense, homeland security, cyber security, and federal civilian markets today announced that it has been appraised at CMMI Maturity Level 3 of the CMMI Institute's Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI).
CMMI is a process improvement approach 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 to fit customer's needs for optimal service delivery.
An appraisal at maturity level 3 indicates the organization is performing at a "defined" level. At this level, processes are well characterized and understood, and are de-scribed in standards, procedures, tools, and methods. The organization's set of standard processes, which is the basis for maturity level 3, is established and improved over time.
"We value this continued recognition by the CMMI institute. As a result of Salient executing at CMMI Maturity Level 3, we will improve performance as measured by decreased costs, higher productivity, and superior quality," said Brad Antle, CEO of Salient. "The benefits of Maturity Level 3 helps Salient better serve our company and our customers as we continue to invest in industry – proven models."
This evaluation was the culmination of Salient's process improvement culture developed over the last 4 years across the company. As evidenced of previous CMMI Maturity Level 3 appraisals, Salient continues to improve the quality of products for its customers.
CMMI is the result of more than 20 years of ongoing work at Carnegie Mellon University by members of industry, government, and the Software Engineering Institute. Powered by Carnegie Mellon, 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.
