ISO vs CMMI
Complement? ISO can efficiently meet the needs of IT? Let’s see how they are in real life!
Often the question arises whether CMMI and ISO are “compliance” in IT industries, as companies have one or the other, not knowing if they lose to implement any documentation, processes and hundreds of hours of work of the other; it really is not, not only much complement, but if both point to the same approach can generate a robust system of quality management and continuous, always improves as processes and documents that are not key to the business is eliminated and that end up becoming true garbage and waste of time to them and control them.
For me, one of the biggest advantages of CMMI is covering all key IT processes, especially engineering, because there really are a number of good practices leading to successful management of the product life cycle, ensuring parallel management project. ISO so you can do but do not have the IT engineering approach and leave loose ends when it comes to Testing, Architecture and Requirements Management among others; it is only a perception of my experience, many may think otherwise surely.
A few months ago, when he left the new version of CMMI (1,3 DEV), I made some slides that explain the model and that have nothing against ISO, if you can not see it in this post I’ll leave the link below CMMI e ISO 9000.
