Many organizations that develop software, whether for internal use or for sale, will improve the quality of what they do looking forward using new models, without spending time and money in solving defects in products.
An organization that builds in product quality from the beginning can be forward-looking and innovative; it can spend its resources on pursuing new opportunities. Delivering quality is also a powerful differentiator in a marketplace where high-quality software is now the exception rather than the rule.
Quality development can be shown through certificates.
ISO/IEC 29110-3-x standards define certification schemes, assessment guidelines and compliance requirements for process capability assessment and conformity assessments to facilitate this important achievement.
The Basic Profile certification certifies that the project management and software implementation processes are correctly implemented and achieve their purpose for the evaluated projects.
The Organizational Profile certification, which ensures that all projects will be successful and aligned with your business objectives and customer satisfaction, will allow you to be ready for the certification of larger organizations and projects such as CMMI or SPICE.
Because you don’t want to be assessed by each one of your customers, and also you know how important is to be recognized, please check this presentation to know who is involved in the certification process, what is the certification lifecycle and how a process assessment is performed.
