Sitara to develop universal framework
Hyderabad: Hyderabad-based change management and process improvement startup Sitara Technologies Pvt Ltd is planning to develop a universal excellence framework, superior to capability maturity model (CMM) developed by Carnegie Mellon University's Software Engineering Institute (SEI).

The consultancy firm, launched six months ago had already achieved significant successes, with taking up two projects and becoming a strategic partner to SEI. Sitara has been identified as the only candidate transition partner in India to deliver the Introduction to CMMI-SE/SW course.

"We are the facilitators of change management, process improvement and technology adoption. We take a holistic view of all the key issues involved like software processes, people, acquisition, dealing with bureaucracy. We believe in building efficiency within the system, not the processes alone," said Sitara Technologies CEO and chairman Raghav S Nandyal.

The excellence framework in development does not aim at information technology sector alone. "We think politics also is a sector worthy of implementing quality processes and change management. Our framework is targeted towards politics as well as information technology and automobiles. We have plans for all segments - small, medium and big. Initially we are planning to do pilot consultancies for free of cost. Hopefully, our final product would be released by the fourth quarter," Raghav said.

Sitara's ProcessXperts SBU provides strategic and professional consultancy for developing, improving, enhancing and assessing the process capability of organisations dealing with IT. E-BizXperts SBU deals with e-products, e-business strategies, e-portals, content designing and development, business process reengineering and risk evaluation and customisation.

Sitara is currently imparting a three-day introductory course on PCMM and SW CMM. "Our introductory course is recognised as the best on the subject. This has been developed with zero-commercial intent. We get our revenues from our consultancy business," he said. The course has integrated several new and innovative aspects like fifth discipline, family therapy, neuro linguistic programming and learning organisation paradigm.

Sitara is currently doing research in software management and in mitigating software risks and building self-sustaining software process improvement programs in development environments working on emerging technologies.
