Project Team Boosts Productivity by 15 to 20 Percent While Achieving CMMI Compliance Using TeamCompanion

Already working at capacity, the Web Infrastructure for Treatment Services (WITS) project team at FEi Systems had to meet the stringent requirements for Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) certification with few, if any, additional resources. The team achieved this by optimizing its use of Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010, and adopting TeamCompanion from Ekobit to access Team Foundation Server 2010 from Microsoft Outlook 2010—including the ability to easily capture email threads in its project repository. This helped the WITS team to achieve CMMI certification with minimal effort and disruption. Moreover, the team’s efforts over the past 18 months have also delivered a 15 to 20 percent increase in productivity, improved visibility into project status, end-to-end traceability, and the capacity to support additional business growth with existing resources.
