CMM is the internationally-recognised standard of application development created by the Software Engineering Institute under the auspices of the United States federal government. CMM allows organisations to move through five levels of accreditation, with Level 5 being the highest. EDS has been awarded Level 3 accreditation,
The EDS assessment involved an international team of assessors, a review of more than 3500 documents, tool demonstrations and in-depth discussions with project managers, software practitioners and the local EDS management team.
