We're happy to announce that we officially have the only Test Maturity Model integration (TMMi) Accredited Assessor in the United States, Tom Cagley, our Vice President of Consulting.
In case you haven't noticed, we're passionate about the TMMi. There is no doubt that it is one of the most effective ways to improve software testing processes, leading to improved software quality and reduced risk. What this news means for you is that we're here and available to help you with a TMMi assessment - or even just to answer your questions.
Only an accredited assessor can perform a Test Maturity Model integration assessment. Assessments include a Gap Analysis to help evaluate how an organization functions against the model, identifying strengths, weaknesses and areas for improvement. To become a TMMi Accredited Assessor, a person must be a certified tester, take the TMMi Foundation training course and pass the examination.
Tom has actually been an assessor for quite some time, and he's helped a number of companies here in the U.S. utilize the TMMi framework (you can read about one engagement here).
The TMMi framework was developed by the TMMi Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving test processes and practices. It is the de facto international standard to assess and improve test maturity, featuring independent best practices from more than 14 quality and test models.
DCG Software Value is a TMMi Accredited Supplier. More information about our TMMi services is available here.
