Cognosante Earns CMMI Level 2

Successful Appraisal Builds on History of Commitment to Quality, ISO 9001:2008 Certification

MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwire - Mar 29, 2012) - Cognosante, a leading provider of IT services to healthcare organizations, today announced that it has been appraised at Level 2 of the Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute's Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI). The appraisal was performed by Norausky Process Solutions, Inc., an authorized Software Engineering Institute (SEI) Partner Company.

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 2 indicates Cognosante is performing at the "managed" level, which means that projects have been ensured and processes are planned and executed in accordance with policy. In addition, projects undertaken by Cognosante employ skilled people who have adequate resources to produce controlled outputs and involve relevant stakeholders. Furthermore, Cognosante ensures that projects are monitored, controlled and reviewed and are evaluated for adherence to process descriptions.

"As Cognosante continues to grow, the CMMI Level 2 rating indicates our business processes incorporate best practices and are recognized throughout the industry," said Michele Kang, CEO, Cognosante. "Our ability to achieve this rating demonstrates our disciplined approach to deliver high quality solutions and services for our customers. Already, we are working toward CMMI Level 3. We are committed to continuous improvement and to achieving the highest standards," added Kang.
