ISD continues to partner with the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), in support of the SEI technology transition mission. ISD was one of the original “spin-off” companies from the SEI in 1994.

The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University has a mission to advance the state of the practice of software engineering. The SEI accelerates development of advanced technologies and their adoption. The SEI strategically engages a broad-based community to implement this mission. SEI Partners are integral to this process.

ISD has been selected an Authorized Organization by Carnegie Mellon University’s Information Technology Services Qualification Center (ITsqc). ISD’s authorization allows us to sponsor candidate individuals to become Authorized Evaluators and Authorized Lead Evaluators and to offer the full range of eSCM-SP Evaluation Services.

ITsqc creates capability models and qualification methods to improve sourcing relationships in the Internet-enabled economy. ITsqc developed the eSourcing Capability Model for Service Providers (eSCM-SP) to help IT-enabled sourcing service providers appraise and improve their services and to assist prospective clients in evaluating service providers. ITsqc also model best practices of IT-enabled sourcing clients – the eSourcing Capability Model for Clients (eSCM-CL).
