Broadsword forms strategic partnership with Movimento Group

14 September 2011
PLYMOUTH/MICHGAN:  Movimento Group—known as the “Go-To” company for control system diagnostic products and services—and Broadsword Solutions Corporation (Broadsword) today announced a strategic partnership to assist Movimento in radically accelerating engineering performance using the Software Engineering Institute’s (SEI) Capability Maturity Model Integration, or CMMI.

The CMMI is a world-class engineering process performance model developed by the SEI at Carnegie Mellon University and has been adopted by engineering organizations throughout the world.  At one time the CMMI was most prevalent in the Department of Defense, aerospace, and federal government sectors, but now is just as successful in manufacturing, automotive, high-tech, and health care. 

“Broadsword’s unique combination of skills, expertise, and tools are exactly what we need to move to the next level as a company.  CMMI is key to our future growth and strength as a software company and we are confident that this strategic partnership will help us continue delivering outstanding customer experiences” said Justin Schroeder, Movimento Chief Technology Officer.

Broadsword’s President, Jeff Dalton, said "Movimento’s extraordinary commitment to initiate a continuous improvement architecture and system based on the CMMI identifies them as one of the leading engineering organizations in the world.  Their approach will accelerate performance while allowing them to respond to customers with increased agility and quality."
