CMMI® is the registered trademark of Software Engineering Institute (SEI), Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), USA. The SEI is a federally funded research and development center conducting software engineering research in acquisition, architecture and product lines, process improvement and performance measurement, security, and system interoperability and dependability. CMMI, the process model framework developed by SEI is one of the most researched and well established models for software development. CMMI is applicable for software engineering and system engineering.
Quoting from the SEI website, Capability Maturity Model ® Integration (CMMI) is a process improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes. It can be used to guide process improvement across a project, a division, or an entire organization. CMMI helps integrate traditionally separate organizational functions, set process improvement goals and priorities, provide guidance for quality processes, and provide a point of reference for appraising current processes.
Currently SEI uses a network of qualified organizations across the world to provide SEI CMMI Services. These organizations are called SEI Authorized Transition Partners. The names of these organizations are available in SEI Partner Directory.
