    Companies requiring a formal software process model tend to choose the V-model. Having its advantages in a strong focus on verification and validation, the main drawbacks of the V-model are the need to create a large amount of documentation, to keep this documentation continuously updated and to manage trace ability of requirements implementation and testing. As it is based on the waterfall proces... View full abstract»

    Much effort has been spent to investigate the organization of distributed teams and their collaboration patterns. It is, however, not fully understood to which extent and how agile software processes are feasible to support distributed software projects. Practices and challenges that arise from the demands for communication are often in scope of current research. Still, it remains unclear what is ... View full abstract»

    An adequate task allocation plan is an effective strategy to reduce collaboration issues in distributed software development. Practitioners adopt distinct processes to allocate tasks as well as diverse labels for the same activities and artifacts. This diversity is also found in literature. Task allocation proposals consider different elements and use distinct names for the same concepts. The lack... View full abstract»

    Trust is generally considered a key element of effective and productive distributed team collaborations. In this paper, we report the results of our investigation into the factors that engender trust in Global Systems Engineering (GSE) teams in five multinational organizations. We extend our previous work by conducting a new field study focused solely on factors that engender trust and identify th... View full abstract»

    Twelve years ago a group of practitioners and researchers came together to try to solve problems relating specifically to Global Software Engineering (GSE) practice. This paper aims to assess whether the many hundreds of GSE research papers written over this period have had an impact on practice. We conducted semi-structured interviews with senior managers and project managers from ten companies, ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents the results of a four-month ethnographically-informed study that we performed at a vendor organization in India to understand how culture influences global software-testing practice. The paper discusses our findings and analysis of software-testing activities conducted by two teams: one working for a Japanese client, the other working for a U.S. client. The findings show the di... View full abstract»

    Just like in co-located teams, software engineers in distributed teams need a variety of information about the project and their team members to collaborate effectively. In contrast with the co-located situation however, acquiring and maintaining sufficient awareness is more difficult. Therefore technological support is developed to assist them with this. However, such support walks a fine line: i... View full abstract»

    Developing and maintaining team awareness within and across teams working in the same project helps team members in aligning their activities and facilitates implicit coordination. This requires both task and presence awareness. In this paper, we share our findings from a survey in which we measured the level of team awareness in cross-team collaborations with varying degree of separation. To meas... View full abstract»

    Along the last decade, many companies started using Distributed Software Development (DSD). The distribution of the software development teams over the globe has become almost a rule in large companies. However, in this context, new problems arise, which mainly involve the physical and temporal distance among the participants. Some studies show that deploying a version control system to alleviate ... View full abstract»

    Global Software Engineering (GSE) teams face challenges due to the need to replace traditional physical presence interactions and co-ordination with computer-mediated means. A vast majority of the available tool support for distributed collaboration is deep-seated in a desktop metaphor introduced in the `70s, and huge efforts are being devoted to overcome its known limitations. Over the last few y... View full abstract»

    Debugging - the process of finding and correcting programming mistakes - faces too the challenges of distributed and collaborative development. The debugging tools commonly used by programmers are integrated into traditional development environments such as Eclipse or Visual Studio, and hence do not offer specific features for collaboration or remote shared usage. In this paper, we describe CDB, a... View full abstract»
