What Is CMMI?.

CMMI stands for Capability Maturity Model Integration.
CMMI is a framework for business process improvement.
CMMI is NOT an engineering development standard or a development life cycle.
CMMI is meant to help organizations improve their performance of and capability to consistently and predictably deliver the products, services, and sourced goods their customers want when they want them and at a price, they’re willing to pay. From a purely inwardly-facing perspective, CMMI helps companies improve operational performance by lowering the cost of production, delivery, and sourcing.
CMMI’s a place to start, not a final destination. CMMI can’t tell an organization what is or isn’t important to them. CMMI, however, can provide a path for an organization to achieve its performance goals.
CMMI doesn’t have its own context; every organization has its own unique one to implement CMMI.
What CMMI practices are, are practices that improve existing work practices, but do not define what those work practices must be for any given activity or organization.

CMMI is used to fulfill various business objectives.

Producing quality products or services –

Deming, Juran and Crosby quality paradigm: Quality products are a result of quality processes, has helped to evolve of CMMI models.
Quality-related activities like requirements management, verification, validation etc are a strong focus of CMMI.
Creating value for stockholders –

Better costs and revenue estimates and performances in line with them are an indicative of mature organization.
CMMI supports any organization in making quality products, predictable schedules and effective measurement and thereby accurate & defensible forecasts.
Project performance problems that could weaken the value of organization in front investors are taken care by the process maturity.
Enhancing customer satisfaction –

A high-quality product with minimal cost and schedule variance is the key to customer satisfaction.
This is addressed by CMMI via planning, monitoring, measuring and more capable processes.
Increase Market Share –
Market share is a result of many factors, including quality products and services, name identification, pricing, and image. Clearly, customer satisfaction is a central factor, and in the marketplace having satisfied customers can be contagious. Customers like to deal with suppliers that have a reputation for meeting their commitments. CMMI improves estimation and lowers process variability to enable better, more accurate bids that are demonstrably achievable. It also contributes to meeting essential quality goals.

Implement Cost Savings and Successful Practices –
CMMI encourages measurement as a managerial tool. By using the historical data collected to support project estimation, an organization can identify and widely deploy practices that work, and eliminate those that don’t.

Gain an Industry-wide Recognition for Excellence –
The best way to develop a reputation for excellence is to consistently perform well on projects, delivering quality products and services that address user needs within cost and schedule parameters. Having processes that incorporate CMMI practices can enhance that reputation.
