  • Demonstrate dedication to continuous improvement and producing work that makes a difference.

“We are excited and honored to have earned CMMI’s highest ranking,” said Prakash Chembai, general manager of Perficient’s Chennai operations. “CMMI, coupled with Agile, has enabled Perficient Chennai to achieve delivery excellence and provide a high return on investment for our customers.

“Across all four of our Global Delivery Centers in Chennai (India), Nagpur (India), Hangzhou (China), and Lafayette, La., we believe certifications such as CMMI, ISO27001, and SSAE-16, combined with employee certifications in ITIL and Scrum Alliance (Agile), are high-value investments that pay off in exceptional delivery for our customers,” Chembai continued. “The work that goes into achieving these levels of industry recognition has consistently been a core component of our Global Delivery strategy for more than a decade.”

The CMMI Institute provides the tools and support for organizations to benchmark their capabilities and build maturity by comparing their operations to best practices and identifying performance gaps. For more than 25 years, thousands of high-performing organizations in numerous industries have earned CMMI maturity level ratings to prove they are capable business partners and suppliers.
