The Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) is a process improvement framework that provides organizations with a set of best practices for managing and improving processes. It is commonly used in software development and IT services, but can also be applied to other types of organizations.
The CMMI framework is divided into five maturity levels, ranging from Level 1 (Initial) to Level 5 (Optimizing). Each level represents an increasing level of process maturity, with the higher levels representing more advanced and effective processes.
CMMI certification is a formal recognition that an organization has implemented the practices described in the CMMI framework and has been assessed by an accredited third-party organization.
Organizations can choose to be certified for one or more specific process areas, such as software engineering, project management, or supplier management. Organizations can also choose to be certified for one or more maturity levels.
Certification is valid for 3 years and organizations can re-certify after that. Compliance services can help organizations implement and maintain compliance with this standard by providing guidance and support throughout the process, including conducting assessments and providing training.
