CMMI is an internationally recognized quality assurance standard that was developed by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University. It has become the standard for assessing the competence of an organization’s capability in applying process based methodology to software development, with a focus on continual process improvement. CMMI can be used to set process improvement goals and provide guidance for quality processes.
CMMI levels are given a numeric scale from Level 1 to Level 5 to rate the maturity of a software development process within an organization. The accreditation is awarded only to organizations that can document a high level of software and organizational standards of CMMI. For more information, please visit www.sei.cmu.edu/cmmi.
