CMMI v2.0 Level 5 DEV Appraised

Development Methodology

Karsun’s data-driven and science-based practice improvement framework guides our software development teams in applying Lean, Agile, and DevSecOps principles in our delivery programs. Our method provides continuous governance of Product, Engineering, and Operational learning loops so that teams deliver quality software with frequent releases while at the same time providing visibility, accountability, and transparency to our federal agency customers. The effective utilization of Agile metrics in our methods enabled Karsun Solutions to be among less than 50 companies in the U.S. to achieve CMMI v2.0 Level 5 (DEV) accreditation.

Practice areas drive excellence through the creation of reusable assets and toolkits, the establishment of guidelines, industry certifications and technology partnerships, and the enablement of active collaboration among employees.
