ZS Business Technology Appraised at CMMI Level 3

EVANSTON, Ill. – March. 1, 2016 –  Global sales and marketing firm ZS announced that its Business Technology group has been rated at Level 3 of the CMMI Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration Development V 1.3 (CMMI)®. QAI India Limited performed the appraisal. 

CMMI® is a capability improvement approach 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” maturity 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.

“This appraisal showcases ZS’s commitment to excellence and focus on developing best-in-class technology delivery capabilities,” said ZS Principal Suresh Ramanan, who leads global delivery within the firm’s  Business Technology group. “We have extended our development practices across projects and geographies to provide a seamless global delivery capability to our clients.”

ZS’s Business Technology group designs and builds sales and marketing technology solutions which support analytics, business intelligence (BI), cloud and data management. The CMMI® Level 3 rating demonstrated that ZS has significantly matured in its technology delivery process discipline by transforming its approach to quality assurance with a high focus on delivery quality and predictability. This, in turn, reduces risk and increases value for ZS clients.
