Acentia Appraised at CMMI Maturity Level 4 for Software Development

FALLS CHURCH, Va. (August 26, 2014) – Acentia, a premier provider of technology and management solutions, today announced that it has been appraised at the Carnegie Mellon University CMMI Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Level 4 for Development for its software development and maintenance work, bringing the entire company up to this process maturity benchmark.

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 software development projects.

“As a leading provider of innovative solutions to customers across the Federal Government, Acentia has extremely high standards, which we strive to exceed every day,” said Acentia Chief Architect Tom Woteki, PhD. “Our commitment to excellence is clearly demonstrated by the company being appraised at CMMI ML4 across the company. This level of appraisal 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 one of only seven companies in the United States currently appraised at Level 4 under the current standard. The company is also appraised at CMMI Level 3 for Services and is certified as ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 20000, which are internationally recognized best practices for Quality Management Systems.
