Company joins select group of CMMI 4 certified U.S. organizations
FALLS CHURCH, Va., Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Acentia, a premier employer and provider of technology and management solutions to healthcare and civilian customers across the Federal Government, today announced that it has been appraised at the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute's (SEI) Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Level 4 for Development for its software development and maintenance work in its Health IT sector. Acentia is one of only five companies in the United States currently appraised at Level 4 under the current standard.
CMMI is a process improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes that ultimately improve their performance. An appraisal at maturity Level 4 indicates that the organization is performing at a "quantitatively managed" level. At this level, the organization and projects establish quantitative objectives for quality and process performance and use them as criteria for successfully executing and managing customer projects.
"This prestigious appraisal validates Acentia's quantitative management of programs, as well as process performance maturity," said Acentia Chief Architect Dr. Tom Woteki. "Our level of appraisal further differentiates us from our competitors, and more importantly, provides assurances to our customers that Acentia is fully capable of measuring process effectiveness, allowing for more predictability and confidence in software development projects."
Acentia is also appraised at CMMI Level 3 for Services and is certified as ISO 9001:2011 and ISO 20000, which are internationally recognized best practices for Quality Management Systems.
Acentia is a premier employer and provider of technology and management solutions to healthcare and civilian customers across the Federal Government. Our professionals build trusted partnerships with our customers by tackling their most difficult challenges on programs of national significance while consistently demonstrating value to our customers and the American taxpayer.
