2008 (English)In: Proceedings of the The 3rd International Conference on Global Software Engineering. ICGSE 2008. Bangalore, 17-20 Aug. 2008., 2008, 3-12 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Global software development surfaces various challenges and benefits that are not always present in co-located teams. The purpose of this paper is to explore a set of propositions that address the suitability of four different software development roles to Global software development (GSD). A qualitative research approach was applied to collaborations undertaken between remote counterparts playing the same development role in various GSD projects. Specific development roles were considered: business analyst, designer, developer and development-support. A framework that details the benefits and challenges of GSD was used as a basis for this research. Suitability of a role to GSD is based upon the balance of challenges and benefits discovered in that role's case. Finally, opportunities for future research are presented.
