Savantage Solutions Achieves CMMI® Level 3 Maturity Rating

ROCKVILLE, MD--(Marketwire - Dec 9, 2011) - Lisa Kazor, CEO and President of Savantage Solutions, announced today that the company has achieved the Software Engineering Institute's (SEI) Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI®) for Development (CMMI-DEV) Level 3 Maturity Rating.

CMMI® models are developed by product teams with members from industry, government, and SEI. CMMI® Level 3 Rating for development is a widely recognized industry standard of excellence in software engineering, meeting the rigorous standards of the Carnegie Mellon Institute of Software Engineering. It is also a globally recognized benchmark for software development.

Carnegie Mellon's Software Engineering Institute has conducted studies demonstrating that organizations using CMMI-DEV in their process improvement programs achieve improved customer satisfaction, increased quality, more accurate schedules, lower development costs, substantial return on investment and improved employee morale and reduced turnover. For government agencies using a software development organization with a CMMI®-3 Rating, this means substantially lower costs and risks for complex IT projects. By using a CMMI®-3 rated development organization, government customers are more likely to receive high quality functional software deliverables on time; customers avoid the need for extensive rework and bug fixes after the fact. Savantage currently provides software development support to multiple Federal agencies, including the Departments of Homeland Security, Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development.

"This milestone places Savantage in an elite group of business enterprises -- achieving this high standard in how we manage and execute software development activities," said Ms. Kazor. "As an enterprise software development company, Savantage delivers high quality business solutions to customers, using agile software delivery processes and standards. Achieving the CMMI®-3 Rating from the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute demonstrates the high standards in software solutions and service delivery we bring to our customers."

The CMMI-DEV version 1.3 (CMMI-DEV, V1.3) at Maturity Level 3 covers processes such as: configuration management, quality assurance, verification and validation, risk management, requirements management, supplier agreement management, integrated project management, technical solution, product integration, project planning and decision making. The Savantage organization was rated at Maturity Level 3 in all process areas for our agile software development capabilities.
