Company Earns Third-Party Certification for Industry Best Practices and Optimization of Business Processes
Washington, D.C., Jan. 12, 2015 — Apprio, a leading provider of specialized technology solutions, particularly for the health, defense and homeland security markets, today announced it has been appraised at Level 3 of the CMMI Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI)®. The appraisal was performed by Mosaic Technologies Group.
CMMI is a capability improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes that ultimately improve their performances. An appraisal at maturity Level 3 indicates the organization is performing at a “defined” level. At this level, processes are well characterized and understood and are described in standards, procedures, tools and methods. The organization’s set of standard processes, which is the basis for maturity Level 3, is established and improved over time.
“Submitting Apprio for CMMI appraisal was a significant commitment of time and effort, but we believed it was an important step in illustrating our commitment to program and process excellence,” said Darryl F. Britt, Apprio’s president. “This third-party validation illustrates what our customers already know–that Apprio is 100% committed to industry best practices and constant process improvements.”
This CMMI Level 3 appraisal builds upon Apprio’s existing pedigree of certifications that include the Small Business Association’s (SBA’s) 8a certification, ISO 9001-certified Quality Management System and Health Level Seven International (HL7) certification.
The CMMI Institute, a subsidiary of Carnegie Mellon University, is dedicated to elevating organizational performance through best-in-class solutions to real-world challenges. The Institute is the home of the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) for Development, Services, and Acquisition; the People Capability Maturity Model; and the Data Management Maturity Model (DMM)SM, which are capability improvement models that create high-performance, high-maturity cultures. The models are used in thousands of organizations worldwide to deliver business results that serve as differentiators in the global market.
