Many companies owe their success in part to business processes and procedures developed, but not widely adopted. This is especially true for the software development industry. Worldwide, the software industry has largely adopted the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute’s process for software development, called CMMI, for Capability Maturity Model Integration. The CMMI process can be applied to most businesses, but it has proven particularly effective for developing software.
In essence, the CMMI process defines and documents the key processes and key employees that are required to perform specific jobs or tasks. CMMI ranks company’s processes as falling into five levels. The higher the level a company achieves, the more likely it will succeed.
hSenid Software International has gained recognition in providing dynamic wireless applications and backend integrations (middleware) for Telecommunication Companies and Enterprise markets whilst ensuring quality in all processes by adhering to ISO 9001:2000 certified standard. hSenid is currently refining their processes to meet CMMI standards. CMMI, (Capability Maturity Model Integration) is a process improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes. It can be used to guide process improvement across a project, a division, or an entire organization. CMMI helps integrate traditionally separate organizational functions, set process improvement goals and priorities, provide guidance for quality processes, and provide a point of reference for appraising current processes.
hSenid has come through the initial CMMI training and progressed and completed the GAP analysis and action plan respectively. The CMMI Product Suite is at the forefront of process improvement because it provides the latest best practices for product and service development and maintenance.
CMMI best practices enable organizations to:
• Explicitly link management and engineering activities to business objectives
• Expand the scope of and visibility into the product lifecycle and engineering activities to ensure that the product or service meets customer expectations
• Incorporate lessons learned from additional areas of best practice (e.g., measurement, risk management, and supplier management)
• Implement more robust high-maturity practices
• Address additional organizational functions critical to their products and services
• Fully comply with relevant ISO standard
