This service will contribute in giving you access to the information
you need to identify gaps with respect to the CMMI or to the governance
processes that have been implemented in your organization, and what needs

*CMMI® (Capability Maturity Model® Integration) is a process improvement model for the development of products and services. It consists of best practices that address development and maintenance activities that cover the product lifecycle from conception through delivery and maintenance, and has become a world de facto standard.
**The CMMI Appraisal Method
is designed to provide benchmark ratings relative to the CMMI models. It
is applicable to a wide range of appraisal usage modes, including both
internal process improvement and external capability determination.
Benchmark ratings are often required by clients to demonstrate that an
organization has the capability of performing the work for which it is
submitting a proposal.
