In 2014, NetCracker was awarded Carnegie Mellon University’s CMMI Software Engineering Maturity Level 5 rating. This is the highest level in the CMMI model and builds on the previous successful results earned in 2011 and the Level 3 rating achieved in 2007. The appraisal confirms NetCracker’s use of standardized, best practices to improve the development of products and services as well as NetCracker’s industry-leading project management, product integration, and process management capabilities.
The CMMI model is an internationally recognized measure of an organization’s process management maturity and allows organizations to link management and engineering best practices to business objectives while providing a framework for continuous improvement in management, product development, and delivery. CMMI ratings are awarded after an intensive appraisal involving analysis and review of engineering, development, and management processes and products. NetCracker believes that compliance with industry standards such as CMMI Level 5 creates outstanding opportunities for boosting business and operational agility while ensuring business uniqueness.
NetCracker’s CMMI Level 5 rating is indicative of the competitive efficiency and reliability of the company’s solutions that are developed using best practices and proven, industry-acknowledged methodologies. From a service provider point of view, our process standardization reduces time, effort, rework, and defects, and thereby reduces product, production, delivery, and support costs while improving product features and quality and — ultimately — customer satisfaction.
"Maturity Level 5 focuses on continually improving process performance through incremental and innovative process and technological improvements. The organization’s quality and process performance objectives are established, continually revised to reflect changing business objectives and organizational performance, and used as criteria in managing process improvement."
