Most of the start-up organizations working with Software Development need to have trusted framework/model for their organizations that can direct them for continuous process improvement as they grow in size and responsibilities.
CMMIÂ® (Capability Maturity ModelÂ® Integration) models (CMMI for Development, CMMI for Services and CMMI for Acquisition) are collections of best practices. These models help organizations to improve their processes in the respective arena.
CMMI Models has been developed by product teams with members from diverse industry, government, and the Software Engineering Institute (SEI).
Of these models CMMI for Development (CMMI-DEV) is one such model that provides a complete framework for software development based organizations. CMMI-DEV provides a comprehensive integrated set of guidelines for developing products and services. Best practices in the CMMI model focus on activities for developing software products (and services) with quality to meet the customer (end users) needs.
CMMI assumes every organization to at Initial Level of the CMMI i.e. CMMI Maturity Level 1. So, actual CMMI Implementation starts from the Managed Level i.e. CMMI Maturity Level 2. It then moves to higher level with the growing maturity of the organization, from Level 2 to 3 (Defined), 4 (Quantitatively Managed) and 5 (Optimizing). These maturity Levels help the organization in developing the Organizational Maturity with the time, growing experience and improved products and services.
There are many benefits observed by many IT organizations after implementing CMMI at different Maturity Levels:
