Sieena Achieves CMMI Level 3 Certification to Underscore Commitment to the Highest Quality of Application Development
For Immediate Release
Globally Recognized Accreditation Ensures Software Application Quality, Cost Savings
for Sieena Clients
LOS ANGELES, August 24, 2009 – Underscoring its commitment to quality, Sieena, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and IT consulting firm specializing in Microsoft technologies and Rich Internet Applications (RIA), today announced it has achieved full compliance with the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) to earn a Capability Maturity Model® Integration (CMMI) Level 3 rating.
CMMI is globally recognized as representing the pinnacle of quality improvement, says Mauricio Duran, president of Sieena. By completing the accreditation, Sieena is better positioned to offer on-time delivery and cost savings to clients, as well as assured results. For Sieena, it means that effective, well-defined processes and procedures are in place, which yields improved team productivity and faster response times.
“Our goal in attaining the CMMI Level 3 rating was to ensure that quality continues to define our organization, our processes and engineering capabilities, as well as the services that we provide our customers,” said Duran. “As technology continues to proliferate, it is more important than ever for companies today to select a technology partner that not only has breadth of experience, but also holds their development processes to the highest standards.”
For software developers such as Sieena, CMMI offers thorough, iterative methods for assessing and describing processes, and comparing these processes against industry standards in order to produce performance and quality improvements. In recent years, CMMI has gained recognition as a means to ensure software application quality, thereby saving time and money by reducing bugs and inefficiencies.
It is widely believed that firms earning CMMI certification produce at higher levels of quality with less costs incurred than firms that are not CMMI-certified, says Duran.
Beyond CMMI, Sieena uses Microsoft Solution Framework (MSF) to add further efficiencies to its development process. With MSF, Sieena can deliver completed applications in a shorter timeframe while still accommodating further CMMI iterations through the use of industry best practices.
Sieena offers a wide range of technology-based services for RIA development, collaboration portals and mission-critical systems support. One of its specializations is building SharePoint-based collaboration portals for specific organizational departments, such as HR, marketing, customer service and finance. The portals offer features that save time and improve process automation, information exchange and decision-making.
