The SEI helps advance software engineering principles and practices and serves as a national resource in software engineering, computer security, and process improvement. The SEI works closely with defense and government organizations, industry, and academia to continually improve software-intensive systems. Its core purpose is to help organizations improve their software engineering capabilities and develop or acquire the right software, defect free, within budget and on time, every time.
Please note that current and future CMMI research, training, and information has been transitioned to the CMMI Institute, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Carnegie Mellon University.
This presentation, delivered at SEPG North America 2011 by Madhumita Sen of IBM and Ron Radice of Software Technology Transition, describes how CMMI supports business objectives at IBM by describing different sample cases of adoption.
