Pragmatics Uses Agile High Maturity for Federal Clients
Reston, VA, [December 12, 2017] – Pragmatics announced today that its Agile Software Development Center has been appraised at Maturity Level 5 of Capability Maturity Model (CMMI®) for Development (CMMI-DEV) Version 1.3. Pragmatics’ Agile Software Development Center is a corporate-wide capability used in software-intensive projects across the company. The appraisal team, comprised of six Pragmatics employees led by a Software Engineering Institute (SEI)-Certified High Maturity Lead Appraiser from Global Process Solutions, LLC, conducted the Level 5 appraisal using the Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement (SCAMPI®) A V1.3.
CMMI is a capability improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes that ultimately improve their performance. An appraisal at Maturity Level 5 indicates the organization is performing at an “optimizing” level. At this level, an organization continually improves its processes based on a quantitative as well as qualitative understanding of its business objectives and performance needs. The organization uses a quantitative approach to understand the variation inherent in processes and the causes of process outcomes.
This distinction reinforces Pragmatics’ role as a leading information technology solutions provider for Federal Government agencies and follows Pragmatics’ success in attaining certification for ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and ISO-20000-1:2011, as well as recertification for ISO 9001:2015.
Pragmatics’ CEO Dr. Long Nguyen said, “We are pleased to have been re-appraised for the third consecutive time at CMMI-DEV Maturity Level 5. This appraisal result underscores that Pragmatics holds a unique position among federal contractors. Pragmatics has relentlessly pursued excellence by continually improving internal processes and implementing industry best practices, including continuous process improvement with CMM® and ISO since 1999. Achieving CMMI Level 5 for a third time is the latest milestone in providing exceptional value to government clients through our Agile Software Development Center.”
