Capability and Maturity Model Integration (CMMi)
Organizations often struggle with delivering consistent quality internally as well as externally. Not only their customers but their employees and other stakeholders too are victims of these inconsistencies. Following are few of the indicators of this experience –
- With every new transaction with the organization, the customers gets a different experience in terms of the documentation quality, product / service quality, delivery quality, support quality, etc.
- Employees often struggle with finding work products to use within the product or service delivery each time there is a new instance.
- Newer employees have a larger learning curve since most processes are run by individuals that are not available in time for the knowledge transfer to these new recruits.
- Processes keep on changing with every new project that the organization has taken up.
- Requirements change in the middle of a project creating unforeseen workload for the project team members
These are few of the many scenarios that indicates that the organization seriously is in need of a process improvement drive. Software Engineering Institute has formulated a model for driving such improvement efforts within a product company or a service provider or an acquirer of services of other companies – CMMI for Services (CMMI-SVC), CMMI for development (CMMI-DEV) and CMMI for Acquisition (CMMI-ACQ)
GYR Technology has a proficient team of consultants to integrate these models for an organization. Our well established approach for deploying the desired CMMI model helps organizations to build a highly efficient system around the process areas described within the CMMI model that offers a proven mechanism for managing process improvements.
The benefits that an organization may get out of our CMMI consulting service are mostly based on the management’s intentions of selecting this service. However, following examples provide some direction about what the CMMI can give the organizations in terms of its benefits

This knowledge is used while optimizing the processes. We provide solutions that consider use of most affordable and efficient tools and technologies that are available to the organization thereby delivering the value of the technologies within the CMMI model.

The appraisal report can then be shared with the existing or new customers. This will develop a confidence in the customer about the quality of service delivery and its consistency. Many CMMI appraised organizations have also witness increase in the customer base due to the CMMI appraisal.
