CMMI NextGen

CMMI Version 1.3 was released on November 1, 2010. All the three constellations of CMMI – SVC, ACQ and Dev, got released in the same period, considering the similarities across them.

How good it would be, if all the three constellations were combined into a single model..? Definitely it would have eased the process of CMMI compliance as well as appraisal.

Yes, the realization is not far ahead. CMMI institute has started to redefine and rewrite the CMMI. ’CMMi NextGen’ is the project currently underway at the CMMI institute. ‘Next Gen will be combining ACQ, DEV, SVC, P-CMM and DMM into a single model. NextGen won’t be a simple upgrade like v1.1 to v1.2, or v1.2 to v1.3. It is a “re-molding” of the entire model.

A set of working groups has been formed under this project to define the future of CMMI.  They work on

  • Architecture
  • Current needs
  • Implementation
  • Performance
  • Plain language
  • Simplify model and appraisal method
  • System
  • Trainings

Each working group consists of “authors” and “reviewers.” Refer more on working groups at http://partners.clearmodel.com/volunteer-cmmi-next-generation-working-group/. CMMI institute is collecting requirements and recommendations. Since the change being major, we will have to wait for a couple of years to have the next generation in place.

Next Generation Project Information Portal is now available on Partner Resource Centre.  All Partner BPOCs(Business Point Of Contacts) and Certified Individuals will have access to the information about the project through this portal.
