The Ministry of Information and Communications this year will help about 11 companies apply the international quality management process CMMi (Capability Maturity Model Integration) in software production and digital content services.
This was informed by Nguyen Thanh Tuyen, deputy director of the management board for industrial and information technology projects under the ministry, at a workshop on application of CMMi and ISO 27001 held in HCMC last week.
CMMi developed by the U.S.-based Software Industry Institute is widely applied in the world and considered one of the criteria for evaluating the quality of software firms.
The cost of implementing CMMi for a company is around US$35,000-50,000. Each firm will receive a support worth US$25,000, including US$15,000 for consultancy and application of a production process meeting CMMi standards and US$10,000 for assessment and certification.
