CMMI V2.0, earlier known known as Next Generation of CMMI, has been released by the CMMI Institute and will completely replace the CMMI Version 1.3 after the transition period.
Following are some of the changes and improvements in CMMI V2.0 over CMMI v1.3:
Key Capabilities Identification: New CMMI Model i.e. CMMI V2.0 will helps organizations in identification of their key capabilities that directly impact Return on Investment (ROI) and Quality, so helping in reducing costs and time to market.
Practice Areas: Now term Process Area has been replaced with Practice Area. Its due to the fact that we have Practices in a Process Area and so it is logical to address Process Area ads Practice Area.
Separate Practice Area for Estimation: CMMI Institute has taken out the Specific Practice of Estimation and has developed a separate Practice Area just to ensure that estimation has focus and is not neglected for better project management, monitoring and control.
Generic goals and generic practices are no longer available: Generic goals and generic practices required for institutionalization are no longer part of the new CMMI Model. Rather these has been incorporated into the CMMI Model as set of Practices. Also, the new model has been designed in such a way that processes are institutionalised by design of the model so that every required process has some part at every Maturity Level.
Single CMMI Constellation: Contrary to the earlier separate constellations for CMMI for Development (DEV), CMMI for Services (SVC) and CMMI for Acquisition (ACQ), now CMMI Institute has merged them into a single model. This will make it easier to implement and adopt to different stream.
PCMM and CMMI V2.0: Popular People CMM has been integrated into CMMI V2.0 as part of Managing the Workforce (MWF) practice area. This will help in better management of people working on project
