CMMI Maturity Levels provide a rigorous benchmark rating method that enables you to compare your organization’s capability to its competitors, its industry, and itself over time. CMMI provides five maturity levels that demonstrate a visible path for improvement. As an organization advances its capabilities, it can expect to achieve a higher maturity level by identifying areas of improvement, working to correct these areas, and integrating solutions across the organization. By communicating your maturity level to stakeholders, you highlight your organization’s capability and commitment to excellence.
The CMMI-DEV model provides guidance for process improvement across a project, department, or organization that leads to lower costs, improved quality, and on time delivery of products and services. The DEV model contains best practices which covers project management, process management, systems engineering, hardware engineering, software engineering, and other supporting processes used in the development and maintenance of systems (products). The implementation of these best practices helps your organization improve efficiency, speed and product quality fueled by a lower number of defects resulting in customer satisfaction!
The CMMI-SVC model provides guidance for improving your organization’s capability to develop, manage, and deliver services. The SVC model covers best practices for Strategic Planning, defining your Service Catalog, work and service management, incident management and reporting and ensure service continuity for your customers. The implementations of these practices help your organization by providing superior service.
The CMMI-ACQ model provides guidance for applying CMMI best practices in an acquiring organization. Best practices in the model focus on activities for initiating and managing the acquisition of products and services to meet the needs of customers and end users.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) develops and publishes International Standards for quality management, service management, information security management and many other globally recognized systems. ISO creates documents that provide requirements, specifications, guidelines or characteristics that can be used consistently to ensure that the materials, products, processes and services are fit for their intended purpose based on the target system in scope. At Kreative, we are experienced in helping your firm prepare to be compliant with these ISO standards!
ISO 9001:2015 establishes your Quality Management System (QMS). The QMS allows your organization to consistently deliver products and services that meet your customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. This results in enhanced customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
ISO/IEC 20000-1:2011 is a Service Management System (SMS) standard. The SMS standard helps your organization to better align your IT services and the business it supports. Adopting the common language and the knowledge about processes usually helps in building trust and confidence of customers and users of the IT services. The SMS model maps closely to the ITIL best practices framework where there is focus on continual service improvement as it relates to Service Strategy, Service Design, Service Transition and Service Operations. While ITIL certification is to a person, the SMS certification is applied to an organization.
ISO/IEC 27000:2016 establishes your Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). The ISMS prescribes the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an Information Security Management System (ISMS). Once fully implemented and operationally sound, these requirements provide the framework and intended behavior of an effective ISMS. Fundamentally, the ISMS typically contain a set of policies and procedures that ensure a systematic pathway to managing an organization’s sensitive data. The main objective of the ISMS is to manage, minimize and mitigate risk while also ensuring enhanced business continuity through the proactive reduction of severity and likelihood of any security breach. Furthermore, it provides the foundation and guiding principles to information security within an organization to include the CIA (Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability) triad construct of the secure system.
The ISO 14001 family of standards provides practical tools for companies and organizations to establish their Environmental Management System (EMS). EMS helps organizations improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste.
