In conjunction with EC’s goal to continually improve at all levels of the enterprise, we have kicked off the CMMI Development Level 3 effort. CMMI is different from ISO in that CMMI focuses on the project management and software development levels of our services; whereas ISO focuses on core corporate processes. We kicked off the effort in June with a Gap Analysis to determine where we currently stand as it relates to the CMMI and to create a plan to meet this development standard. EC will develop processes according to the standards that fulfill the CMMI Level 3 expectations and will implement the processes on a development project.
EC executives have selected NTIR (Non-Traditional Intelligence Repository), ISI SecurityControl and SEMT as the first projects to implement the new process as they are being developed. EC plans to have the CMMI Level 3 certification completed by May 2017.
