SES IT Department Earns CMMI Level 3 Re-Appraisal
SABIS® continuously sets industry standards in the use of information technology. Its cutting-edge approach and proficiency in IT helps ensure that the organization achieves its objectives of using technology to optimize learning, improve academic results, enhance teacher efficiency, and reinforce communication.
In line with SABIS®’s core value of continually improving and never becoming complacent, which has contributed to keeping the organization at the forefront of education since 1886, SABIS® was recently re-certified at a CMMI (Capability Maturity Model® Integration) Level 3. This prestigious certification signifies that the organization’s IT development methodologies meet internationally-recognized standards. SABIS® shares this privileged rating with only ca. 2,800 organizations worldwide including Airbus, Boeing, IBM, and NASA.
The Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) is a process improvement and appraisal program that is used to guide process improvement across a project, division, or an entire organization. Under the CMMI methodology, processes are rated according to their maturity levels and awarded a maturity level rating ranging from 1 to 5 or a capability level achievement profile.
“We are very pleased to have maintained our level 3 rating,” said Mr. Elie Dagher, Director – Software Development at SES. “The rating demonstrates that the department has institutionalized the standard software engineering processes and adopted the culture of continuous improvement of product quality and user satisfaction."
