Reminder of the CMMI Product Suite Version 1.1 and SW-CMM Sunset Dates
PITTSBURGH, PA, July 19, 2007—This message from the Carnegie Mellon® Software Engineering Institute (SEI) is a reminder to the process improvement community about the sunset dates for the Capability Maturity Model® Integration (CMMI®) Version 1.1, Software-CMM®(SW-CMM®), and their accompanying training materials and appraisal methods.
On August 25, 2006, the SEI and the CMMI Steering Group formally released the CMMI Product Suite V1.2. Over the past year, the SEI has worked with SEI Partners, SEI-authorized SCAMPI Lead Appraisers, SEI-certified SCAMPI High Maturity Lead Appraisers, SEI-authorized CMMI instructors, and the broader process-improvement community in the transition to the updated version of CMMI. This 12-month timeframe enabled the SEI to retire training and appraisal materials, as well as provide online upgrade training to CMMI stakeholders.
Sunset Information for CMMI V1.1
Sunset of the CMMI Product Suite V1.1 was announced in December 2005.
With the release of the CMMI Product Suite V1.2, the SEI also released its SCAMPI High Maturity Lead Appraiser Certification. All SCAMPI V1.2 Level 4 or Level 5 appraisals must be led by an SEI-Certified SCAMPI High Maturity Lead Appraiser. To date, nearly 80 individuals have been certified, and they are identified at the SEI Partner Web Site, http://partner-directory.sei.cmu.edu/search_auth.cfm/.
Sunset Information for SW-CMM
The SW-CMM was retired on December 31, 2005.
The CMMI V1.2 Product Suite reflects the CMMI Steering Group's response to the ever-changing needs of the process improvement community and includes improvements to the SEI appraisal program. It enables organizations and customers worldwide to provide a consistent and fair representation of their organizations’ adoption and use of CMMI.
