ISHPI AIS Appraised at CMMI Development Maturity Level 5 for the Sixth Consecutive Time

Suffolk, VA – Ishpi Information Technologies, Inc. (DBA ISHPI) is pleased to announce that its Advanced Information Services (AIS) Division has been appraised at Maturity Level 5 of ISACA’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI®) for Development (CMMI-DEV ML5) for the sixth consecutive time. The appraisal was performed by ATKinson Organizational Transformation Team (ATKOTT).

CMMI is a proven, outcome-based performance model and the globally accepted standard for improving capability, optimizing business performance and aligning operations to business goals.

An appraisal at Maturity Level 5 indicates that the organization is performing at an “optimizing” level. At this level, an organization continually improves its processes based on a quantitative understanding of its business objectives and performance needs. The organization uses a quantitative approach to understand the variation inherent in the process and the causes of process outcomes.

ISHPI is now one of a select few companies in the United States to hold CMMI-DEV ML5 rating, demonstrating our capability for high performance and ability to provide our customers with more predictable, lean, flexible, and cost-effective products and services.

Why is our CMMI-DEV ML5 important for our customers?

ISHPI’s emphasis on data, metrics, and continuous improvement activities result in higher quality and security, predictability, and productivity, as well as lower risk and cost for customers.

Our proprietary CMMI-DEV ML5 Agile High Velocity Development℠ is ISHPI’s set of agile software practices for development, maintenance, and modernization that have enabled us to achieve results that are far superior to industry averages for schedule, cost, and quality. The practices are lean, inherently flexible, and highly tailorable to meet team size, customer standards, delivery schedules, and project requirements of individual contracts. These practices have been repeatedly appraised at CMMI-DEV ML5 in every appraisal during the last 15 years.

“We are proud to be—yet again—successfully appraised at CMMI-DEV ML5”, said Earl D. Bowers, ISHPI’s President and Chief Strategy Officer, “because it demonstrates our commitment to consistently deliver high quality and secure results for our customers. It is also a testament to the extremely talented ISHPI team that continues to define and enable new mission-ready capabilities for our customers, our nation and defenders of our homeland.”
