PISCATAWAY, NJ (August 13, 2019) – OM Group today announced that it has been re-appraised as operating at CMMI Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI®) Level 3 for both Development (CMMI-DEV) and Services (CMMI-SVC) constellations. The appraisal was performed by Acuity.
OM Group presented a custom application and software development program for a federal customer for the Level 3 appraisal in the DEV constellation. This program included software system development following Agile DevOps methodology.
“Our successful CMMI appraisal shows that OM Group’s Agile methodology for software development is consistent with the process rigor to drive customer engagement and satisfaction while maintaining quality,” Sangita Subramanian, OM Group’s Chief Operating Officer, said. “By automating the build, test and release cycle using DevOps toolchains, our team reduced time to production release, while also creating an automated, auditable trace for version control and configuration management, increasing confidence in the quality of the end product.”
For the SVC constellation, OM Group’s Cloud Migration Program was appraised. This program implemented a factory model with standard, repeatable processes for migration of multiple applications and systems from on-premise datacenters to the cloud environment.
“For our CMMI Level 3 appraisal, we used programs that are critical to the IT modernization initiatives of our customer base,” Sowmya Hariharan, OM Group’s Chief Executive Officer, said. “As one of the few small businesses that have achieved an appraisal Level 3 in both DEV and SVC constellations, OM Group makes a strong and trusted IT partner for our federal customers.”
OM Group’s Level 3 appraisal signifies that the organization’s processes are established, well-defined and show continuous improvement over time. Our staff follow well defined processes with standard policies, procedures, tools and methods for both software development and service delivery – which is a major element of risk reduction and quality control.
CMMI is a proven set of global best practices that drives business performance through building and benchmarking key capabilities. Originally created for the U.S. Department of Defense to assess the quality and capability of their software contractors, CMMI models have expanded beyond software engineering to help any organization in any industry build, improve, and measure their capabilities and improve performance.
