CMMISM stands for Capability Maturity Model Integration. CMMISM is a process improvement method that provides a set of best practices that address productivity, performance, costs, and stakeholder satisfaction. Organizations that want to use common, integrated, and improving processes for Systems and Software will find CMMISM to be very useful to achieve their goals.
The CMMISM is NOT a set of "bolt-on processes" that last only as long as the wheel is squeaking. CMMISM provides a consistent, enduring framework that accommodates new initiatives. CMMISM facilitates enterprise-wide process improvement, unlike single-discipline models that can result in duplication of work, confusion and higher costs. Process improvement using the CMMISM improves predictability of the critical measures of cost, schedule, performance, and customer satisfaction.
