Madrid, xx February 2013
Bull Spain has successfully achieved the Maturity Level 3 rating during its recent Capability Maturity Model® Integration (CMMI) for Development appraisal. The CMMI® Level 3 rating was awarded for the software development business line delivering services both on its own Service Centers and on customer’s premises. ®
Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI®) for Development is a process improvement framework that measures the maturity of an organization to design and develop software. It encompasses a set of best practices for specific process areas, which address development and maintenance activities that cover the software development lifecycle from conception through delivery and maintenance. CMMI® was developed by a group of experts from the industry, the U.S. government, and the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University. The CMMI Institute, a 100% subsidiary of Carnegie Innovations, now manages all CMMI® training, certification, licensing and appraisal services.
Bull Spain became involved with the CMMI® model in January 2009 and its subsidiary SICONET (a Bull Group Company) achieved CMMI® ML 2 for Development Version 1.2 in July 2010.
The level 3 rating assesses that the organization has established and follows well-defined, repeatable and effective standards for project management, software engineering, systems integration and quality assurance, while maintaining a focus on continual process improvement.
“Improving our common processes and using the CMMI® framework as a benchmark has enabled us to achieve process excellence, resulting in improved quality, productivity and customer satisfaction” said Fernando Molpeceres, Head of the Business Integration Solutions Division and Appraisal Sponsor. “This achievement consolidates Bull Service Center in Madrid CEDEX (Centro de Desarrollo Externalizado), recognizing its innovative concept and the high value of the services offered to our customers. Thus, the CMMi Level 3 accreditation positions our company as one of the top providers in terms of maturity and quality level in software development projects, which makes a real difference in the market”
