Companies Achieve SEI-CMM Process Maturity with Parasoft AEP Solutions

10/16/2003 - Parasoft, leading provider of Automated Error Prevention software solutions, announced that implementing Parasoft AEP Methodology and Solutions helps companies to achieve SEI-CMM® process maturity by automating many of the processes required throughout the five levels of CMM – making successful certification a practical and attainable goal for businesses.

The Capability Maturity Model for Software (CMM or SW-CMM) is a model for judging the maturity of software processes within an organization, and for identifying the key practices required to increase the maturity of those processes. It also defines a series of levels through which software organizations evolve as they define, implement, measure and improve their software development processes.

Level five is the pinnacle of CMM success, and calls for Continual Process Improvement, including Defect Prevention, Technology Change Management, and Process Change Management. According to CMM, Technology Change Management and Process Change Management involve identifying and incorporating effective technologies into an organization to help improve software quality, increase productivity and reduce the production lifecycle.

"All of the processes of level five can be achieved by adopting Parasoft AEP Methodology and by implementing Parasoft AEP Solutions," says Adam Kolawa, Parasoft Chairman/CEO. "The objective of Defect Prevention and our AEP Methodology is to constantly improve the software development process by learning from each error, putting the necessary steps in place so the same error doesn’t happen again, and then monitoring for improvements. The challenge faced by many organizations is that without automation, adhering to CMM requirements can be both ineffective and costly. That’s where our solutions provide unique value: they automate processes and make it practical for organizations to implement the requirements specified by CMM."

Parasoft products are designed to ease the software development process, improve software quality and lower development costs for a variety of development languages (including C, C++, Java, HTML, XML, and SOAP) and platforms (including Linux, Windows and Solaris).

Parasoft’s line of products automates static analysis, unit testing, application level testing, load testing and monitoring. Parasoft static analysis products ease the code review and coding standard enforcement process and enable project managers to customize coding standards to address changing needs. Parasoft unit testing products (such as C++Test and Jtest) thoroughly test applications at the class level and automate white-box, black-box and regression testing for effective defect prevention.
