TeraThink has been appraised at level 3 of the CMMI Institutes Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI)®. The appraisal was performed by PI&C LLC.
CMMI is a capability improvement framework that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes that ultimately improve their performance. 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.
In January, TeraThink began a quest to achieve ISO 9001:2015 compliance. The ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is a multinational standardizing organization that has published over 21,000 international business standards. The ISO 9001 standard (last updated in 2015, hence the 9001:2015 designation) covers the requirements of developing and implementing a Quality Management System (QMS) within a business.
Organizations that are ISO 9001 compliant can show tangible proof that their products and services are high quality. It also shows that the organization actively monitors those products and services to assure their quality remains high. I served as TeraThink’s Quality Manager through this quest. I’m pleased to report that this past week we achieved ISO 9001:2015 compliance certification.
TeraThink was awarded the Quality Assurance Subsystem (QASS) contract with the Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). We will be providing the maintenance and operational support for the Quality Assurance Subsystem (QASS) subsystem and a successful conversion from ColdFusion/Sybase to Java/Oracle. The conversion will return the QASS system to compatibility with other systems within HUD, and will also improve system performance by restoring key touch point functionality that was lost as a result of an upgrade to a feeder system.
