The Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) is a world-class performance improvement framework for competitive organizations that want to achieve high-performance operations.Today, CMMI has become the de facto standard for information and communications technology (ICT) companies to improve operational efficiencies.

CMMI for Development(CMMI-DEV) consists of best practices that address development activities applied to products and services. It addresses practices that cover the product’s life cycle from conception through delivery and maintenance.Organizations from many industries, including aerospace, banking, computer hardware, software, defense, automobile manufacturing and telecommunications,use CMMI-DEV.

The CMMI framework is frequently used in ICT companies for process improvement initiatives. However, it is not often used in IT-enabled services companies, especially financial organizations.

With increasing dependence on IT, many financial organizations are facing challenges in translating business vision and alignment strategies into multi-year IT investments and operating plans, as well as challenges with the impact of IT on the enterprise’s performance measurement.

COBIT® provides an end-to-end business view of the governance and management of enterprise IT(GEIT) and reflects the central roles of information and technology in creating value for enterprises.

Fantastic article Mr. Chaudhari. 

I was trying to do this myself, but your approach is much better. Thanks a lot.

RE: COBIT Focus - Importance of CMMI-DEV in COBIT-based IT Governance

Hello Kiran, 

Why use cmmi-dev and not the process assessment model (pam) which assesses the process capability in 9 different steps?

This capability approach is even one of the official cobit documents. 

I am confused

Hi Eppo luppes,

Thanks for your comment. while writing the content, myintent was never to inform audience not to refer any of COBIT 5 material. 

CMMI is descriptive framework and much ofamplification is specified in every process areas. This helps organization tounderstand the intent of practices and also help ways to implement thepractice. Since COBIT APO, BAI, MEA practices maps and complement to CMMIProcess areas. Best practices of CMMI PA will help organization to betterimplement COBIT practices.

 CMMI framework, has excellent practices which helporganization for process institutionlisation.

 And finally at higher level COBIT claimed its mappingto CMMI but not specified PA/practice level references to CMMI such as ISO20000, ITIL, ISO 27001.

 As per your experience, refering PAM is much helpfulfor effective implementation, you can go ahead follow that way. 

CMMI-DEV is one of excellent framework which has best and proven practices of SDLC(Software Development Lifecycle) and if you have prior knowledge and experience of CMMI framework then,  I am confident that this mapping will help you to implement COBIT practices.

Regards,

Kiran Chaudhari
