CMMI Development is an integrated set of best practices that improves performance and key capabilities for organizations that develop products, components, and services.


In today’s high-technology business environment, nearly all organizations are building increasingly complex products and services. As a result, the product development lifecycle has become more difficult to manage and control – organizations frequently experience cost overruns, defects impacting quality and customer expectations, and missed deadlines due to re-work.

CMMI Development is an integrated set of best practices that improves an organization’s capability to develop quality products and services that meet the needs of customers and end users.
