New York, NY – July 11, 2012 - NTT DATA, Inc., a leading IT professional services provider, today announced that its subsidiary NTT DATA Federal Services, Inc. received, on March 30, 2012, a successful CMMI Development v1.3 Maturity Level 3 appraisal as measured against the Software Engineering Institute’s Capability Maturity Model for all programs and organizational level processes.
While most US federal government agencies value or require compliance with industry standard practices, tailored to the needs of particular programs, a growing number mandate a successful Level 3 CMMI appraisal in order to bid for their IT services business. NTT DATA’s commitment to industry standards is long standing, and this CMMI appraisal provides further testament to NTT DATA’s maturity as a leading global IT services provider. CMMI is an industry-accepted best practices framework that provides an approach for performance improvement in software engineering and organizational development. The CMMI Level 3 appraisal demands a high level of process design, rigorous adherence to the model and consistent process improvement.
“NTT DATA Federal Services believes in and pursues consistent process improvement for both our own organization and for our clients. Our Level 3 appraisal is indicative of our commitment to quality,” said Tim Conway, President, Public Sector, NTT DATA, Inc. “Our efforts were made easier as a result of our history and experience in process improvement with many of our Federal customers. The CMMI Level 3 appraisal for Development is a significant milestone for NTT DATA Federal Services and continues to serve as a roadmap for service development and maturity. Our commitment to quality does not stop here as we have also kicked off NTT DATA Federal Services’ pursuit of CMMI 3 for Services and ultimately ISO 9001.”
Process areas evaluated in the CMMI model include project planning and control, risk management, requirements development and management, training, decision analysis and resolution, metrics analysis, supplier acquisition management and quality assurance, among others. Clients benefit from the process maturity and discipline measured by the CMMI appraisal through increased quality, reduced risk, and completion of projects on time and on budget – all foundations to the reputation of long-term client satisfaction that NTT DATA has achieved.
With more than 45 years of service, NTT DATA Federal Services engages in IT Services, providing deep expertise in Application and Infrastructure Services and Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) to civilian agencies and military branches of the federal government. In addition to this Level 3 appraisal for its Federal Services business, NTT DATA Global Delivery Services Limited has been successfully appraised at Maturity Level 3 of CMMI for Services v1.3 Model and its India Solution centers at Maturity Level 5 of the SEI CMMI-Dev v1.2 Model.
