In october 2010, version 1.3 of the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) has been released by the Software Engineering Institute. I’ve published several articles on the benefits of CMMI V1.3. This is (for now) the last article, which sums it all up.
There are 3 CMMI V1.3 models released: CMMI for Acquisition (ACQ), CMMI for Services (SVC), and CMMI for Development (DEV). The CMMI V1.3 makes it easier to combine process areas from different models, thus supporting continuous improvement that delivers quicker business results.

CMMI Roadmaps are a goal-driven approach to selecting and deploying relevant process areas from the CMMI. Their aim is to deploy the CMMI effective, and quickly get business result. Let’s see how the CMMI Roadmaps can be used with the CMMI V1.3.
Delivering product with the right quality, on time, can be difficult. Testing decisions are crucial to reach this. Are there ways to improve your testing decision capabilities? Yes there are, and they have been used and have shown to be valuable.
