ISACA Acquires CMMI Institute

ISACA, the professional association for IT governance, assurance and cyber-security professionals has acquired CMMI Institute,

It says it is a strong believer in the advancement of best practices in people, process and technology and that joining forces with the CMMI Institute should allow the two organisations to raise the level of enterprise wide performance for existing and prospective members and customers and reach more diverse markets.

ISACA provides knowledge, standards, networking, credentialing and career development to IT and cyber-security professionals. Through its comprehensive guidance and services, ISACA defines the roles of information systems governance, security, risk and assurance professionals worldwide.

CMMI Institute is the organisation behind the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI), the widely adopted capability improvement framework that guides organisations in high-performance operations. CMMI Institute provides the tools and support for organisations to benchmark their capabilities and build maturity by comparing their operations to best practices and identifying performance gaps.

“We are living in a time of dynamic change in our industry, and technology has more power than ever before to transform an organisation. For nearly 50 years, ISACA has been committed to equipping the professions we serve with the resources they need to positively impact their enterprises,” said ISACA CEO Matt Loeb, CGEIT, CAE. “Our acquisition of CMMI Institute will help us to broaden our focus on helping professionals and their organisations optimise their use of technology, increase value for stakeholders and improve business performance.”

“CMMI Institute is a natural fit for ISACA and we are very excited to unite with them to create new offerings for ISACA's member community,” said Kirk Botula, CEO of CMMI Institute. “Together, we'll offer a stronger portfolio of business solutions and professional development to both of our global customer bases and accelerate the pace of capability improvement and high maturity operations in their organisations.”
