Announcement  |  Companies & Industry 

New Delhi, 17 October, 2006 - Hurix Systems, one of the fastest growing technology companies in the Asia-Pacific region, has moved one step closer to attaining the highest level in the Software Engineering Institute's (SEI) quality framework, the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMi). Hurix was appraised at Maturity Level 4. The appraisal used the Class A Standard Assessment Method for Process Improvement (SCAMPI).

Others on the list include global technology majors like Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Sikorsky, Fujitsu, Hitachi, IBM, etc. Hurix is the only publishing and eLearning company to have made the cut.
"This is a proud moment for us, especially since we are such a young company," said Subrat Mohanty, CEO Hurix Systems. "The strength and soundness of the Hurix Way, which lays great emphasis on continuous improvement of systems and processes, have already been proven by the pace at which we have grown and the list of our clients. This comes as an endorsement." He added, "However, we don't intend to rest on our laurels. For us, this is an incentive to keep refining and fine-tuning our systems and processes, to create even greater client delight."
Hurix is due to be assessed for Maturity Level 5 shortly. They have set themselves the target of doing it within the next 12 months.

About SEI CMMI
Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) is a process improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes. CMMI was created by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University, in conjunction with members of industry and government.
The goal of the CMMI project is to improve usability of maturity models for software engineering and other disciplines, by integrating many different models into one framework.
CMMI should be adapted to each individual company, therefore companies are not "certified." A company is appraised (e.g. with an appraisal method like (SCAMPI) at a certain level of CMMI.
