Whats the difference between ISO vs CMM ?

CMM is much oriented towards S/W engg process improvements and never speaks of customer satisfaction whereas the ISO 9001:2000 speaks of process improvements generic to all organisations and also speaks of customer satisfaction.

FYI. There are 3 popular ISO standards that are commonly used for SW projects. They are 12270, 15540, and 9001 (subset or 9000). I hope I got the numbers correct. For CMM, the latest version is 1.1, however, it is already considered a legacy standard which is to be replaced by CMMI, the latest version is 1.1.
