THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A Kerala-based IT group has achieved a major milestone in software development by securing the prestigious Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Level 5 certification.

Two software companies under the 6 billion Network Systems & Technologies Pvt. Ltd. (NeST) group have got the CMMI Level 5, assessed by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) in the U.S.

Said N. Jehangir, managing director of NeST: "The very stringent CMMI certification is indeed an honour to the Indian software industry as a whole. This framework would help us deliver predictable quality in our business.

"Further, this provides an opportunity for our customers the world over to repose their confidence in NeST."

CMMI is a widely recognised framework for assessing and improving software development capabilities. It is a more comprehensive model with emphasis on quantitative and statistical methods both at the organisational level and in project implementation.

The CMMI Level 5 assessment goes beyond software to encompass the process maturity of NeST's whole "systems engineering", including hardware, firmware and mechanical design.

The CMMI Level 5 appraisal at NeST was completed under the SCAMPI version 1.1-appraisal method specified by Carnegie Mellon University's Software Engineering Institute at Pittsburgh, U.S.

SCAMPI incorporates the best ideas of several process-improvement appraisal methods and is the world's highest level of quality certification available in software and systems integration.

NeST has its operation centres in Kochi, Thiruvananthapuram and Bangalore. It also has overseas offices in the U.S., Canada, Britain, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Australia and Japan.

NeST employs over 3,000 people globally and provides product design, hardware manufacture, software, networking, training and other services to major customers like Hitachi and Toshiba.
