Huawei Technologies India Pvt. Ltd (HTIPL) announced it has been given the SEI CMMi Ver 1.2 Level 5 certification following an appraisal by KPMG. This certification is the highest level of quality and process maturity appraisal in the industry. It is expected to boost customer confidence in HTIPL's delivery and quality capabilities.

The appraisal was conducted by KPMG in accordance with the SCAMPI Methodology, and HTIPL has been assessed at the Maturity Level-5 of the Software Engineering Institute, Carnegie Mellon University, USA, and Capability Maturity Model Integrated CMMi Ver 1.2for the Products/Platforms/Projects covering Software Engineering, and Product Development in the Application and Services Business Line of the Indian R&D center.

Founded in 1999, HTIPL focuses on deploying processes for managing telecom and networking software development. The center achieved CMM Level 4 in 2001, CMM Level 5 in 2003, and CMMi Level 5 Ver 1.1 in 2005.

K K Raman, lead assessor and executive director of KPMG said, "Huawei Technologies India has successfully demonstrated their capability to operate at higher levels of software development maturity as seen in the business line assessed. The business line has been assessed for conformance to all the process areas up to maturity level-5 of the CMMI DEV Model based on the SCAMPI assessment. High levels of management commitment and many consistent higher maturity practices aligned to business line objectives were observed."

Justin Chen, chief operating officer of HTIPL commented that "CMMI is one of the most suitable models for software product development and is derived from proven industry good practices. We have progressively built and assessed our Quality System and its capability to manage the development, technical support and maintenance of products and solutions using CMMI model, and we will constantly enhance our system, providing vast benefits to the customer."

This appraisal was unique in terms of high maturity practices, and the different expectations to be met and complied with. This was a challenging assignment for HTIPL in channeling new ideas and knowledge as the model enabled HTIPL to establish internal controls, predict the end results, and enhance its quantitative project and quality management skills, and effective practice deployment. This is also a very significant accomplishment for HTIPL being the first R&D center in Huawei to initiate and successfully complete the CMMi Version 1.2 appraisal, which will result in on-time delivery consistently and improved customer satisfaction.
