The Capability Maturity Model® Integration (CMMI®) has evolved from the learning, feedback and experience of software organizations across the world that deployed various models (ISO, CMM®, etc.) for improving their processes. CMMI® builds on and extends the best practices of the Capability Maturity Model for Software (SW-CMM®), the Systems Engineering Capability Model (SECM), and the Integrated Product Development Capability Maturity Model (IPD-CMM®). There are different levels of a maturity model such as CMMI-DEV ML2, CMMI-DEV ML3, CMMI-DEV ML4 and CMMI-DEV ML5 etc.

Apart from integrating the software and systems engineering areas, the model links it to the organization’s business objectives and also maintains a focus on meeting customer expectations.
