Cambridge has achieved Maturity Level 3 in software development with the Carnegie Mellon University Capability Maturity Model® Integration (CMMI®). This achievement demonstrates Cambridge’s commitment and ability to develop and deliver exceptional solutions to our commercial and government clients. An appraisal at maturity level 3 indicates an organization is performing at a “defined” level. At this level, processes are well characterized and understood and are described in standards, procedures, tools, and methods, which are improved over time.
To achieve Maturity Level 3 status, an independent external organization, Broadsword Solutions, Inc. led a comprehensive Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement (SCAMPI) appraisal of Cambridge’s software development projects. The selected projects were appraised as having implemented the over 330 generic and specific development practices expected by the CMMI of a Maturity Level 3 organization.
“Our achievement of CMMI-DEV Maturity Level 3 status was a major 2017 accomplishment that we are especially proud of,” said Kimberly Harokopus, Cambridge CEO. “Recognition as a Maturity Level 3 organization provides our customers with the assurance that they will be receiving high quality, high-value solutions that are effectively and efficiently developed and delivered.”
The CMMI is a process improvement framework developed by the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) with representation from defense, industry, government, and academia, and is now operated and maintained by the CMMI Institute, an operating unit of CMU. Organizations adhere to CMMI development practices to signify excellence in engineering, project management, and organizational capabilities.
