Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI)

Capability Maturity Model or CMM is a reference model of mature practices in a specified discipline, used to assess a group’s capability to perform that discipline.

Hence “Capability Maturity Model®” and CMM® are used by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) to denote a particular class of maturity models.

Software CMM, the one we saw earlier on, is one of the many CMM models.
