Who Uses CMMI?

Profiles of Companies Using CMMI

There are over 5,000 businesses that use CMMI models from over 70 countries, including the U.S., China, Germany, Italy, Chile, India, Australia, Egypt, Turkey, and Russia.

An overall look at businesses using CMMI is illustrated in the process maturity profile. It is based on the most recent appraisal results reported to the CMMI Institute. These profiles have been released twice a year since 2002 and include CMMI adoption trends, including the global distribution of appraisals, number of appraisals, and how long it takes to move from one maturity level to the next.

You can search a database of published CMMI published appraisal results (PARS) to find businesses and their achieved level ratings. These organizations come from different industries, countries, and philosophies, yet they all have level ratings and are benefiting from CMMI. Perhaps some of them are your competitors.

An appraisal’s results are owned by the appraisal sponsor at the company, so the sponsor decides whether to publicize appraisal results and report these results to the CMMI Institute. The appraisal sponsor authorizes the SCAMPI Lead Appraiser to provide appraisal data to the CMMI Institute using the SCAMPI Appraisal System (SAS).

Regardless of your company’s profile, CMMI models can help you identify risks and gaps in your organization and improve performance. Learn more about the benefits of using CMMI and how to get started.
