WASHINGTON, Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tantus Technologies, Inc. (Tantus), an innovator in the information technology and management consulting markets, today announced that it has successfully completed the SCAMPI A re-appraisal process for the Carnegie Mellon, Software Engineering Institute's (SEI) Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Maturity Level 3 rating. This re-appraisal was conducted across Tantus' Project Management and Systems Engineering consulting services and represents the second consecutive appraisal at level 3 for Tantus. CMMI is an industry-standard process improvement model that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes that ultimately improve the quality, repeatability, and cost of services.
"This milestone highlights our focus on improving process areas and the development of best practices within our organization," said Tantus' Director of Technology Solutions, Nayeem Ahmed.
An appraisal at Maturity Level 3 indicates the organization is performing at a "defined" level, meaning that processes are well characterized and understood by employees, and are described in standards, procedures, tools, and methods. Tantus has a documented, centrally stored and managed set of standard processes, templates, and toolsets, which are tailored for each project.
"At Tantus, we have leveraged CMMI Level 3 processes to help our clients achieve improved efficiencies and provide reliable service with repeatable delivery, resulting in positive customer feedback and overall reduced cost due to re-work and inefficient management," said Buck Keswani, Tantus' Chief Executive Officer.
Tantus is a Washington, DC-based IT and management consulting small business specializing in systems design and integration, program management, financial management, and information security. Tantus supports mission critical programs for Federal agencies including the Federal Aviation Administration, Health and Human Services Centers for Medicare and Medicaid and National Institutes of Health, the National Park Service, and the Export-Import Bank of the United States.
