Codice Software succeeded on mixing an agile method, SCRUM with CMMI processes.
Codice Software’s innovative approach to product development and quality has been validated by the Software Engineering Institute, whose assessment team has awarded Codice a Level II Capability Maturity Model Integrated (CMMI) rating.
The CMMI rating is the global standard reserved for those companies exhibiting world-class product development capabilities. This model offers benefits to every company, going from saving on development costs, an increase on productivity and planning improvement to increasing significantly the quality of the finished product which implies a higher level of satisfaction among its customers.
Codice is focused on the design and development of Software Configuration Management solutions. Its product, Plastic SCM, is entering the competitive international market of version control solutions, one of the fastest growing areas of software in past years due to its importance for producing quality software. Codice offer a powerful and flexible alternative to some other tools by software giants such as IBM, Microsoft or Borland.
Codice’s aim to be certified CMMi started in 2005. The company started its improvement process and was supported by the Spanish Ministry of Industry through an initiative to improve the quality on the software industry. The software process offers special features which make its CMMI adoption even more interesting as the development team is using an agile methodology, SCRUM, based on empirical control of processes and which is usually considered as incompatible with CMMI.
Agile methodologies, broadly used from 2000, promote the developers commitment to the project as well as flexibility towards change.
Many software companies such as Microsoft or Google are adopting agile methodologies in order to dynamize their software deliveries.
Codice was also a pioneer on adopting SCRUM in our county and has been able to get the best out of both worlds (SCRUM and CMMI) creating a flexible and at the same time defined process.
The most important benefits of CMMI level II are:
A more disciplined project management
Different policies to be defined and followed by the company
Processes are planned, described and documented
Responsibilities are defined within the methodology and lifecycle
Codice Software provides solutions for software developing companies. It helps its customers to reduce their costs, risks and development complexity as well as increasing the quality of their products, allowing them to focus on adding value to their processes.
